The 2022 season got off to a great start with 21 students attending the first of five planned sailing lesson sessions. Here, Vice Commodore John Maddux explains the basics, with assistance from Irene Haws. The group then moved to the boatyard for a lesson on rigging the boats, etc. Subsequent sessions will get the students out on the water.
It's time to think about sailing at Lake Shawnee. The boatyard is open so you can get the boat out of your driveway or barn. We have lots of events scheduled for this coming sailing season -- dinners, sailing school, regattas, etc. -- too many to list so you'll have to go to the schedule on the website.
It is also time to pay your annual club dues. The amounts are unchanged this year, even in the current inflationary time -- Social $50, Boating $100, and Racing $150. You can mail a check to: ShawneeYachtClub, PO Box 221, Topeka, KS. 66601. You can also pay online with a credit/debit card, a PayPal account, or Venmo.
I'm planning to see you soon at SYC.
