Christy Davis for organizing the party and to Richard and Kitty Brown for providing the karaoke equipment.

Commodore’s Corner It’s been a challenging spring, to say the least. It’s late May and by this time, the marina should be nearly full of boats. We should be enjoying the fresh breezes and warm sunshine of late spring. This is one of my favorite times of year, and yet this year it feels like we have been robbed of nearly 2 months of our prime sailing season. But, we are sailors and we are used to dealing with what Mother Nature gives us. So we have no choice but to carry on, waiting for better days ahead, and taking advantage of whatever breaks the current weather provides us. Although the weather has restricted our sailing time and perhaps dampened our enthusiasm (temporarily), our sailing season is underway. The Spring Wednesday Night series is past the halfway point. The May Cup was a big success with several out-of-town boats participating in the Catalina 22 Region 4 Championship. The party on Saturday night gave our “American Idol wannabes” a chance to take the microphone. A good time was had by all! Thanks to

Learn to Sail classes have begun! As always, we are so appreciative of the excellent program run by Tom Wehrung and his volunteer instructors. Year after year, this is one of our most successful programs and the best recruiting tool for growing club membership. Our social calendar kicks into high gear in the coming months. Shannon can always use volunteers so please let her know if you are able to help out with any events. Here are some of the highlights over the next 2 months: June Highlights June 2 – Columbus Sail and Power squadron meeting and dinner. All ACSA members invited, RSVP required. June 11 – Weekend ‘Staycation’ at ACSA marina June 18 – Women’s Regatta Part 1, and Graduation Party June 19 – XX/XY Regatta, Part 1 June 20 – Ladies’ Sail July Highlights July 4th weekend - Fireworks raftoff July 16 – Rock at the Docks/ Staycation/I-LYA Fundraiser July 18 – Ladies’ Sail July 23 - Mardi Gras Party Our next General Meeting will be on Monday, June 6th at the Pavilion.

with new sailing friends. After that, start all over at 08:00 the next day. I’d call it total emersion. The Instructors Most of the instructors have spent at least 5 years at sea or have done numerous offshore passages. Whether it was round the world cruising or frequent hops across the gulf stream to the Bahamas or island hopping in the Caribbean, the knowledge that was passed out was from firsthand experience.

The Navigation Station Neal Heiser, Monohull Fleet Captain Cruiser University was an amazing Blast! There was no lack of fun things to learn about sailing (especially from my perspective)! The Set-Up All classes were held in tents at the edge of the walkway on the inner harbor. There was one main tent for food which also held some classes. The weather was cool and a bit wet but as sailors do, everyone just took it in stride. Classes usually lasted one hour and twenty minutes. Lecturers had to clear out to make room for the next class or students had to get to their next class. This left about four minutes to get a coffee and donut then move on to your next class. We repeated this drill for the rest of the day. Lunch was provided in the main tent so you would run between classes fill a plate and take it to your next class. ( You don’t want to miss anything). We did this for three days. The last class of each day started at 16:45 and lasted until 18:00. At either 16:30 or 18:00 you could hop on a 40-52 ft boat for a demo which lasted 1 ½ hr. If you didn’t want to go to the demo, there was the ‘reception area” which opened at 17:00 each day. WOW! What decision! Hit another class, go for a big boat demo or that rum thing. Then, dinner on your own

SEP

The Attendants 60% were sail boaters and 40% with the other kind. The age group was 40 to 75and the 75 year old just bought a 32 ft sail boat and will start his solo around the world sail next spring. Yes at 76 years !! Many of the attendees were couples getting ready to go live the dream somewhere, boat owners who were looking to upgrade for Blue Water cruising, or just there to learn more about the cruising life and what it takes to live it. Some estimates for living the cruising life are from $500 to $5000 per month for a couple. The realistic numbers were a surprise to me. From $1500 on the cheap to $2000 for fairly comfortable. Much less than what I anticipated. That was one of takeaways that was interesting. The Classes All were taught by highly experienced professionals who were also very good speakers and all had a hard time hiding their excitement for the water. Each seminar that I attended left me wanting more information but still needing to let my ears and mind rest while still wearing a big smile! This is truly fun stuff !! I thought maybe it was just me, but in talking with others they also found that there was so much information offered in each and every class. We all came out wondering which class was going to be the dud, but there wasn’t one !

off, get going, but don’t take chances just to meet a “schedule.” BE SAFE take your time and enjoy. Remove the word schedule from you vocabulary. Then there were other tips like no first aid kit was complete without duct tape for splints, shark bites or prop cuts (it makes sense). Other ideas like keeping the jack lines mounted high so when you fall off you don’t just drag in the water. Attach and store whisker poles on the mast. Also, highly recommended is the new gadget that is the man overboard wrist watch with locator. Great Websites for sailing tips and cruising www.PamWall.Com Pam is the cruising outfitter for West Marine in Ft Lauderdale and lives part time in Abbaco. http://www.carib1500.com Caribbean 1500 from Richmond VA to Tortola BVI 10 days. The idea is that you pay your way to Richmond MAYBE pay the $100 registration and pay your way back from Tortola the skipper/owner usually pays all other expenses. www.Bermudarace.com http://www.baja-haha.com/dates.html There was also a class on 10 places to visit in Chesapeake bay. The set of seminars and classes was just too full of information and fun that I will have to go back next year to see what I missed. If you want, plan to join me! Also at the JUNE meeting we will have a fun event similar to last years life ring toss. See you there!

The Tips One of the speakers mentioned “waiting to cast off while life was frittered away,” Pam’s recommendation to that is to HAVE THE PARTY AND LEAVE! Even if you only cast off and go 20 miles. You can adjust on the way. The other word that she wouldn’t use was S--sch---sssche----ssschedule. Cast

Extend the life of your motor

Attention sailors there is a better way to fuel up your sailboat outboard motor gas tank. Presently most of the auto gasoline stations are selling a 10% ethanol blended gasoline.  This gasoline is designed to be used up in less than 30 days.  We sailors often go a whole season on one tank of gasoline. If you use the ethanol alcohol blend you may be damaging your outboard.  The ethanol in the gasoline can blend with water and it can also damage some of the rubber seals and rubber hoses.

Jellies are an amazing summer time snack and because they are so yummie here are a few recipes that will make your jellies stand out.

Alabama Slamma

The solution is to go on line www.pure-gas.org and find gas stations that sell alcohol free gasoline.  The Alum Creek State Park Marina boat gasoline dock only sell alcohol free gasoline and the octane is 90. The price will be about 75 cents higher per gallon than you find at your local gas station that is selling the alcohol gasoline blend.  Presently the Alum Creek State Park Marina gas pumps are closed because of routine maintenace.  The Alum Creek State Park staff hopes the gasoline pumps will be operating by Memorial Day Holiday weekend.

Dissolve 1 package of Lemon Jello (3 oz) in 3/4 cup boiling water and stir. Add 1/3 cup of cold water. Add 1/3 cup of Amaretto, 1/4 cup of Southern Comfort, and 1/3 cup of Sloe Gin. Pour. Chill. Serve.

Bomb Pop

Dissolve 1 box of Lemon Jello (3 oz size) in 3/4 cup of boiling water and stir. Add 1/2 cup of cold water, 1/2 cup of Raspberry Vodka , and 1/4 cup of Blue Curacoa. Pour. Chill. Serve. (Yummie Jellies continued on page 8)

Parrot Head Dissolve 1 box of pineapple jello (3 oz) in 1 cup of boiling water and stir. Add 1/2 cup of cold water, 1/4 cup of Black Raspberry Liqueur, and 1/4 cup of Spiced Rum. Pour. Chill. Serve.

Rum & Coke Dissolve 1 box of cherry or black cherry jello (3 oz.) in one cup of boiling Coke for about 2 minutes. After the package is completely dissolved, add 1/2 cup of cold cola and 1/2 cup of rum. Pour. Chill. Serve.

Strawberry Whip-a-Ritas Dissolve 1 box of lemon jello (3 oz.) in one cup of boiling water. Add 1 cup of your favorite tequilla to lemon mixture. Fill cup 1/2 way with lemon mixture. Chill. Dissolve 1 box of strawberry jello (3 oz.) in 1/2 cup of boiling water. Add 1/2 cup cold water. Fill cup 1/4 way with strawberry mixture. Chill. Top with whip cream. Serve.

Spend the day sailing, then party the night away. If you don’t dock at Alum Creek, bring your boat over and join the fun. Spend the night on your boat or camp. More sailing on Sunday, then home. Suggested food donation: $5.00, but all donations welcome. Suggested donation for entertainment: $5.00, but all donations welcome.

Senior Sail Regatta August 5-7

P/C Bob Sheppard, 2011 I-LYA Sail Regatta Chairman It’s hard to believe this is the last newsletter before the Senior Sail Regatta, better known as Bay Week! I thought winter would never end, and now I’m wondering where it went.   I’ve been very busy attending meetings in Sandusky and Put-in-Bay getting things planned and have also visited several clubs in Ohio, Michigan and New York promoting the regatta.  Born on April 12th.   He came in at a wee 5lbs Registration is on-line at www.i-lya.org.  First watch the great promotional video 13oz.

We’re offering the three-night social package again this year; food, beverages and entertainment all three nights for just $30.00 per person.  You’ll find one-design and He’s perfectly healthy. His handicap fleets to fit every boat.  There’s even a cruising class for those who enjoy being lungs/vocals function well on the water but who don’t enjoy the intense competition of some of the fleets.  Even above what we would if you don’t race at all, register as a support boat or just purchase a social package and have expected for such a come on over to the play at the Bay!  small baby. Takes after his   grandfather there I suppose. The Senior Sail Regatta provides many opportunities to enjoy the camaraderie you will find with sailors from around the Great Lakes.  Along with this camaraderie comes many volunteer opportunities.  As we have for the last several years, ACSA will serve Born at 4:07 p.m. beverages at the annual rum party on Friday night.  We also need ticket-takers at the gate that evening.  While we’ve brought in professional race management for each of April 22, 2011 the courses, they need help from volunteers like you with time-keeping, scoring and 8 lbs. 15 oz. all the myriad jobs that go along with running a race.  Experience or lack of it doesn’t 21” long matter; they are all excellent teachers and will welcome anyone who wishes to come along.

Sailing Made Easy

Midwest Yachts, Ltd

By: Harry Munns

www.midwestyachtsltd.com

Book Review by Meredith Laitos, Sail Magazine, June 2010, pg 18 Sailing education just got a face-lift. The American Sailing Association recently published Sailing Made Easy, perhaps the most comprehensive learn-tosail guide on bookshelves today. Editors Peter Isler and Jeremy McGeary worked with lead writer Harry Munns to compile a beautifuly designed and thoroughly researched manual that covers all of ASA’s 101 course. The text summarizes hundreds of complex sailing concepts and is accompanied by useful illustrations and great photos. There are quizzes at the end of each chapter, and a glossary helps those new to sailing navigate their way through the extensive nautical lexicon they’ve just learned. Sailing Made Easy is a significant improvement over its predecessor and is best coupled with an ASA class, where you can take the lessons from the book and apply them on the water.
