Participation and Support Opportunities

 

To sign up: Contact activity leaders by June 12 (1st Pot-Luck)

 

FLEET ACTIVITIES WITH AVAILABLE JOB OPPORTUNITIES:

WOOD-PUSSY HOIST PATROL TEAM Bill Petti (wpetti@charter.net) and Bill McMillan (wmcmillan@pcsia.net), along with their Hoist Patrol Team, will offer help to skippers and crew in the launch ramp area as boats are hoisted in and out of the water.

SKIPPER/CREW INSTRUCTION Bruce Walker (walkerba807@gmail.com) will help set up individualized training sessions as requested by current or prospective fleet members. NEEDED: Bruce has asked for a co-leader for these instruction sessions.

LEAN-INS Christy Tull (crystallkmikey@t-one.net or 352-5663 year-round land line), with co-leaders Trish Skierski (sumpri43@yahoo.com or 352-5034 summer land line) for June, and Linda Tull (htull4@aol.com or 352-4593 summer land line) for July, will organize volunteers to host individual Lean-Ins. Two volunteers are requested for each Lean-In, held after most Friday races, starting at about 3:45 - 4:00 PM (or around 3:15 PM if races are canceled). Each volunteer will help 2x per sailing season bringing food, staying to help during the Lean-In and cleaning up afterwards. Christy will bring a sign-up form to the first Pot-Luck. NEEDED: Christy needs a co-leader for August.

POT-LUCK DINNERS Nancy Weir (pnweir@gmail.com) and Cathie Walker (granciewalker@yahoo.com) will schedule these social venues. Contact Cathie or Nancy if you are interested in hosting the W-P Fleet members, either on your own or with a co-host. The Invite list is based on active participation, with size determined by available host space.

CLOTHING ORDER Advise Helene Saunders (hms6@aol.com) regarding apparel / clothing accessory items of interest. NEEDED: Helene would like a co-leader for this activity.

 

TROPHIES NEEDED: a volunteer to arrange and secure the 2013 season trophies, to be given in 2014. Please contact Toby Tull (crystallk@t-one.net).

FLEET ACTIVITIES/LEADERS THAT CURRENTLY NEED NO EXTRA HELP:

RULES/FLOTATION/RIGGING/SAFETY Dan Greene and Pete Weir will schedule and run education sessions to include rigging, tuning, flotation, light & heavy-wind sailing skills, racing rules/tactics and safety issues. Pete and Dan encourage all owners and skippers to look over their boats and equipment in preparation for the summer season.

BOAT REHAB./REPAIR Bob King, John (Vink) Vinkemulder and Pete Weir will guide and assist when they can with needed work on your boat and its rigging.

RACES DAYS Pete Weir will lead the races each sailing day. Skippers are strongly encouraged to sail with crew to enable increased participation in our W-P racing. This summer our races will generally start at 2:00 on Wednesdays and 2:05 on Fridays. We are scheduled to sail 2 races per day (on a Windward/Leeward, Olympic or an occasional Triangular course). It is wise to plan to be at the Club early each day to get rigged and ready on the starting line. When weather is questionable, races will be postponed before they are canceled. In the event a race must be canceled for any reason, a third race may be added on Wednesdays as a "make up race."

RACE SCORING Bill Cotsworth will tabulate and post on CLYC.net our 4th of July Regatta, July Series, 2nd Annual W-P Fun Regatta, August Series and SEASONS sailing results. All race results count towards SEASONS standings, except our 4th of July Regatta and 2nd Annual W-P Fun Regatta which stand alone. Boats versus skippers will be scored to tabulate standings.

FLEET COMMUNICATION Fleet communications will be coordinated by Dan Greene. Click on this link: CLYC W-P Web Site to view our Fleet information on our web site.

FLEET PHOTOGRAPHY The fleet is collecting photos of our fleet sailing and social gatherings, with past seasons included. Jim Bovard (bovardjimjen@gmail.com) will lead this effort and will again be taking and collecting pictures during the summer. Please send your favorite W-P Fleet pictures to Jim. Many photos are already posted for you to view and enjoy - on this link: CLYC W-P Web Site and on Picasa (contact Jim to learn more about Picasa).

2008 Florida Flingof the Wood-Pussy Fleet & Friends

February 18-22, 2008, the CLYC mighty Wood-Pussy Fleet met in Florida for its Winter Social. There were 23 of us and we based our group mainly on Anna Maria Island and spent fun times from there down to North Port. We walked on the beaches, kayaked in Sarasota Harbor's mangroves, sailed on a sloop off Bradenton on the Intracoastal Waterway, shopped at Saint Armands Circle, explored Charlotte Harbor by motorboat, ate together in various venues, even on the beach for breakfast, and at our two host homes (Weirs and Cotsworths), and finally several of us sailed 5 races on two E-scows in the Sarasota Harbor with the Sarasota Sailing Squadron who lent us the hulls for our use. We had a wonderful time together. Come join us in 2009. Talk with one of our W-P Fleet Members about future Fleet events.
