    On Saturday, Oct. 2, CLSA Commodore Nooreen Meghani unveiled the Deb Aronson Sailing Library. It will be installed before next sailing season in the club pavilion so members can share their favorite sailing books. Deb Aronson is a published author, and it is fitting we are naming this community sailing library after her. Deb and husband Ben may be moving away, but CLSA will always be thankful to both of them for making such a positive difference in our sailing community.

    Did you know that CLSA pays one discounted fee to the marina so all of our members may use the bathrooms, dumpsters and electricity? Doing so affords our members access to modern bathrooms with running water just steps away from our dock. It also allows us to use their electricity for running our crock pots for social events. Dumpsters are located in the marina parking lot, and we appreciate members removing garbage from the pavilion after use. To access the bathroom after hours, use code (log in to see member handbook since these announcements are public).

    Join us for a Venetian Night celebration on Saturday, Aug. 21! We've got something for almost everyone and a full day of fun activities planned.  


    Noon - Competitors Meeting

    1 p.m. - Mixed Fleet Racing (around the buoys) with special guest Principal Race Officer Geoff Endris.   

    4 p.m. - Cabin boats will assemble on the dock after the racers have returned to the dock.  

    5 p.m. - Dock walk begins. Cabin boat owners welcome guests on their boats to show off their rides. A great opportunity to see different boats and meet new people.   

    6:30 p.m. - Dinner is served. We'll be serving up rolled Italian flank steak, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and caprese salad for $15. Members are welcome to bring a dessert to share. Sign up here through Wednesday the 18th so we can place our food order. 

    7:44 p.m. - Sunset. Cabin boats have historically decorated their boats with festive lights, invited sailors for a sunset sail and returned to the dock under the light of a full moon.

    We hope all members will take 5-10 minutes and update their profiles, update their group preferences, subscribe to forums and upload an avatar.   Wild Apricot is a great because it puts members in complete control of their privacy and communication preferences.  Wild Apricot forums work well, but require members to opt in by subscribing to each forum.  For those who don't opt in, we will share forum posts on our weekly email to members so you don't miss our on member conversations in the forums.  Subscribing to forums is optional, but you will want to subscribe to forums if you want timely notifications whenever a new topic or response is added.  

    Wild Apricot Quickstart Guide

    Important Reminder: Even though all family members receive club communications, each family membership only has one shared login. The Wild Apricot login is the email address of the primary contact.  

    Login to Wild Apricot. Click on the blue avatar on the upper right of the CLSASailing.Org homepage. Once you are logged in, you can update your profile, see member-only content on the web page and sign up for member-only events. Use the Forgot Password to retrieve your password.  

    Members must sign in to view member-only content at CLSASailing.Org and to access the features below:


    Member Directory. Your email and personal contact information is not shared with club members by default. Members may still contact other members through the system. If you are comfortable with sharing your contact information with other members, feel free to update your privacy settings.  

    Group Participation. Our groups include Cabin Boats, Kiteboarders, Flying Scots, Thistles and Windsurfers. Fleet captains may send special invites and group communications through Wild Apricot to those who have signed up for that group. You can add or remove yourself from a group at any time by updating your profile.

    Forums. You must subscribe to each forum individually if you want timely email notifications when someone posts or responds to a forum. We have a general forum where member can post a topic and members can respond.   Each fleet/group also has a forum on their fleet page for topics specific to that group.     

    Avatar. We bring in many new members every season and it would be nice if people could put a face with a name. It only takes a few minutes to upload a picture. Please upload a picture while you are thinking about it. When a member posts to a forum, it shows their avatar so people can see who they are talking to.

    It's been too long since we had a big social event in the pavilion and we hope you can join us! The fun starts at 6 p.m.  

    Click here to RSVP and order your steaks or veggie burgers through Thursday. If you are ordering different food items for family members or guests, you'll have to place a separate order for each food item, but it's easy to do. (Those with family memberships must sign in to Wild Apricot using the primary email account when placing your order.) 

    Non-member guests are welcome. To sponsor a guest, simply note the number of guests when ordering your steak or veggie burger dinners. If you would like to order different food items for different guests, you will have to place multiple orders, one for each food type.   

    This is a bring-your-own-beverage event. Members and guests are welcome but not required to bring a dessert to share. 

    We can't wait to see you at the lake!
