LOG Article
A group of Sailing Club Precision 15 sailors are eagerly anticipating a fun weekend of P-15 racing and partying at the Smyrna Yacht Club on November 10-12. There are openings for more racers and there is always room for spectators to support the IYC team. The races are held on the river in front of the SYC which is a very spectator friendly venue. This hard-fought series, between the IYC and the SYC, alternates locations every year. Help our team achieve a first time away victory! Contact Michael Mixson or Christi van Heek for more information.

At the October Sailing Club meeting, ISC President Michael Mixson announced that, due to the resignation of the ISC Vice President, current ISC Secretary Joe Onofrio would move from the secretary position to the vice president position and Patti Mixson would take over as secretary. Thanks to Joe and Patti for stepping up. Also thanks to Max Achtau for volunteering to help coordinate our Precision 15 races.

The IYC support boat is now on hand and is being used to support our racing program. Any interested IYC member is encouraged to volunteer to operate or crew on the support boat. If you want to help, please contact IYC Director Larry Holden or our Sailing Club Vice President, Joe Onofrio, about training. A big round of applause is due to all who worked to make the support boat a reality and/or donated to the Support Boat Compass Fund Project.

Cleats on our IYC owned Harbor 20s, Crafty Lady and FWB II, were damaged when Hurricane Irma blew the water out of the harbor. This damage has been professionally repaired and the boats have been given a new coat of bottom paint. They are now almost like new and ready for action.

As the weather cools, Social Sailing and chartering of the Harbor 20s will be more enjoyable than ever. Remember that both these activities are open to all IYC members. Contact the office to schedule a charter or contact Joe Onofrio for more information. The Sailing Club will provide a skipper to those who are not yet on the qualified skipper’s list. Reservations for Social Sailing can be made via the IYC online calendar or by contacting the office.
