Boat Spa Day, Open Sailing Day Jul 06, 2020  Leland

On June 27th we had our first ever Boat Spa Day and Open Sailing Day

Thanks to all who came down to the beach to assist with cleaning, inspecting, and of course muscle power to move the boats around so we could work on them. 

And thanks to members Rob Baade, Bill Cowlin, Liza Boling, Dan and Julie Wickman (apologize for any spelling errors) who treated their boats to a good cleaning and inspection for problems. We also included club boats in the cleaning effort, some of which were used for the Open Sailing later in the afternnon.  And we got to mingle with some members.
