John T., Bill E. and I spent a good 5 hours on Tuesday in the buoy field replacing chain, hardware and even some buoys and we're going to be at it again on Wednesday, April 20 at 8 a.m. and would be grateful for assistance from anyone who can make it out. (Thanks Adam W. for stopping by and hauling some heavy chain and George H. for the aerial entertainment.) Bring rubber boots, gloves, pliers and wire cutters (if you want). Our official work party, which will include a number of other buoy field, dock and parking area chores, is still set for Sunday, May 1 at 1 p.m. Let me know if you have any questions and if you think you can make it to either event.

The RPSC General Membership meeting was followed by an informative and entertaining slide show from Michael and Catharine Whitby featuring sailing the lower west coast of South America.
At the 2014 Annual Membership meeting of the Rickey Point Sail Club in Kettle Falls, Washington, Catherine Brown and J. Foster Fanning, after a decade of service to their favorite sailing club, held their course and tendered their planned resignations, as secretary and commodore respectively, in preparation of retirement and pursuit of the cruising lifestyle. “It’s been a good decade of service and both Catherine and I feel as though we’ve gained as much as we’ve given,” Foster said, “but it’s time to move on. There’s new courses to chart.”
