To all OHSC Members and guests:
Saturday marks the official “Opening Day” for our 2014 Sailing Season, and what a tremendous response we are having from our members and others who are hearing about our club! If the weather forecast holds, we are expecting between 15 and 20 boats for our first regatta of the season, which is three times more than we usually have in April. What a start!

Race Committee duties are being handled by Tait or Leslie Humphries, and new members Steven and Sandra Boul. Mike and Marie Schram are providing refreshments. Also anyone who is attending is welcome to bring some snack or drink items, as we are going to have a great turnout.

The current forecast for Saturday (which has been waffling back and forth between Partly Sunny and Showers) is showing Partly Sunny with winds (during race hours) of 6 to 9 mph, with gusts into double digits. Water temperature should be around 60 degrees.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL HAVE SHELTER #6, WHICH IS ON THE TOP OF THE HILL BACK IN THE WOODS (for this event only, and then for our future events we will be in Shelter #5 near the dock).

We are going to make every effort to get all of our guests who want to participate onto a boat, with our new members getting first opportunity. To all boat captains, if you are going to need crew, please let me know, so that I can begin finding boats for those who want to sail.

For any members who have sailing experience and need a boat, the club’s Sunfish will be available to rent for $25 for the day. We expect the Harpoon 4.6 will be committed in order to accommodate one or two of our guests.

See you all on Saturday morning!
