Weekend update for August 8 and 9

Hey, everyone, hope you are drying out from our soaking on Tuesday. Sellersville is reporting between 7.5″ and 8″ of rain. The lake levels rose at least a foot, if not two feet, compared to Monday night. Winds whipped through after the rain stopped around 1:00-2:00 in the afternoon, and then moderated. There were a few roller furled jibs that unrolled, including an O’day Daysailer on G, a Buccaneer on E dock, and Precision 23 “Fiddler’s Green” on the hard. There were quite a few boats contacting the docks. Please review the article on dock lines in the February 2020 issue of The Compass newsletter, so your boat won’t get smashed during the next storm. Take a look on the Club Facebook group for surprising pictures of flooded dock gangplanks.

The Club doesn’t have any events scheduled for this weekend. This will give you plenty of time to get your small boat ready, or to reserve a Club Sunfish, for the Singlehander Regatta coming up the following week on August 15!

Weather this weekend is expected to be partly sunny and dry, with temperatures seasonably mid-80’s Saturday and increasing to high 80’s with more humidity on Sunday. Wind forecasts show NW to W and fairly light on Saturday, and clocking around to SW and stronger on Sunday, bringing in that heat and humidity.
