2003 Sailing Season

June 29th Spinnaker clinic

Our happy crew searches for all of the parts needed to make a go.

Richard, Belinda and friends prepare the spinnaker rigging.

Mike points out ...what the heck IS that, anyway???

Marlene, Wayne, Mike and Bill "got it all bagged". Probably better 
than half in the bag, which came later.

There's nothing better on a cold Winter night than a warm smile from 
Katrina and Michelle.

There was a great turnout for the clinic. Michelle dealt handily with 
the comments from JP.

Kathy and JP demo a hoist. JP had some trouble getting it up. Sad 
thing in such a fine, young man. Was this the same spinnaker that Rob used 
to propose to Tricia?

It's Up! It's Good!

It's Up! It's Good!

JP demos a gybe

Now the members try it - with mixed results at first.

All of the members get'em up. What a glorious moment! It makes you 
proud to be a sailor.

We try a practice gybe.

And we still have them all flying.

Now we get prepared to douse the chute.

Another look at getting ready to douse.

Bringing the chute in smartly.

The hearty crew intentionally practices a wrap, and prepares to 
unwind the chute. Yeah, right..."intentionally".

Michelle also wraps up the day with a critique and final advice. What 
a great time we had. We hope that the memory keeps you warm this Winter.
