This weekend, we have no Club-related sailing related activities. Our official sailing activity season is complete. However, we have a bunch of other stuff going on! For example, this weekend is the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis!
Summer dry slip holders must remove boats by end of day Saturday. If your boat stays in the same spot for winter storage, of course the boat can remain in place.
Official Haul Out Weekend is the following weekend, October 22 and 23. Club members will be on hand to help get boats out of the water, cleaned up with club pressure washers, and masts unstepped for transport and winter storage. Boats must be out of the marina docks by end of day Sunday, October 31.
Also on that final weekend of wet slip season, the club will move forward with it’s service project to replace the slip numbers at the ends of finger piers. The club chase boat will be on hand, and members are encouraged to bring their own stable dinghies. You can install the numbers from the docks, but it should be A LOT easier and more comfortable to do it from a boat. We’ll meet at A-dock at 9:00 Saturday for instruction. This will be an on-going project, because there are MANY slips to update!
Finally, some of our biggest news: The pandemic has calmed down enough that we can bring back the Fall Banquet! This will be held Sunday, November 20th from 11:30 to 3:00 at the William Penn Inn in North Wales. Everyone is encouraged to attend. Dan Reasoner will give a presentation on his recent world tour and circumnavigation! You can register and pay for the banquet online through the club website by following this link: https://nockamixonsailclub.org/product/autumn-banquet/ Prices are $25 for members, $15 for kids, and $35 for guests.
There is still great sailing weather. This weekend we should have sunny skies, and temperatures up to 70º. Winds are forecast out of the S and SW on Saturday from 11 to 20 knots, and NW and W on Sunday from 8 to 12 knots.
