Let's Make One Design Great Again!

One Design Racing

We’ve got to make One Design great again!

The first thing we need to do is drain the swamp.  That’s right drain the swamp!  We have the third race in the Spring Series coming up this Saturday and we’re looking for a good showing.

Noel Clinard is the PRO and he has a great day planned for us.  So all you One Design boat owners get out there and drain the swamp that has built up in your boats from sitting all winter and come on out and race. Show the good old boys how to do it.

After the racing, stop by for a first class social being arranged by Abigail Whorley. So drain the swamp and make One ...

Great Adult Sailing Lessons On Board the Club Boats Last Weekend!

Club News

 

Members Dave and Caroline Keys, Bill and Claire Prior, Nancy Harrison, and Dean Smith learned the ropes (and the lines, and the sheets) and are eager to get back behind the tiller whenever they can.  Said Nancy, "I love being able to take out a boat on my own!"

Thanks to CNU graduate and sailing team member Laura Kilgore for teaching the classes...and keeping her cool when the J24 had engine trouble while going into Jackson Creek.  And thanks to Chilcott and her crew for giving them a tow!

The Club boats are easy to reserve and the cost for the entire family is only $100 for an entire season.  Click here to sign up ...
