Greetings Fellow Sailors!
Please take a moment to enjoy your July issue of the Windword. The club has been very very active, with huge attendance at last week's moonlight sail and many, many racing activities since the last Windword.
I would have added more photos, but I've been too busy sailing myself!
Come join sailors of CLSA at the Salt Creek Restaurant & Bar located at Clinton Lake Marina at 6:00 p.m. for dinner and visiting.
Around 7:00 pm, we will head out for a sail under a full moon on beautiful Clinton Lake. Those with boats will be matched with people who want to to hitch a ride.
Can't come for dinner? Show up at the marina restaurant a few minutes before 7:00!
Night sailing is special: A calm comes to the lake, an gentle evening breeze picks up, the stars come out, and sailboats ghost along. You can hear the clanking of the rigging, see the sparkle on the water, and feel a peace not present during the day.
Everyone is welcome! We hope to see YOU there!
Please enjoy the June issue of the Windword.
And remember to join us Saturday for Family Day
and Sunday for the triangle race!
