Onward and upward!

Fleet One had their annual meeting at the Richmond Yacht Club on November 17, 2021.

The meeting was well attended and it was great to see a number of smiling faces in person, and many more on Zoom. We are all crossing our fingers, hoping for good health in the coming year.

Congratulations to our new Officers who took the helm after the meeting. We are in very good hands for the coming year. There is reason for optimism around racing, cruising, social events and good Alerion-based company!

Is that light at the end of the tunnel?!

Vaccines are happening….and with some thought and caution, we are seeing some reason for optimism. RYC beer can races continue to be fun and exciting…. as are the SSS and YRA races. Thanks for all who make this possible!

We are tying to keep up with the AE28 race schedule; both for the season championship standings and in order to find as many opportunities as possible to get out and enjoy a safe COVID activity. Here is the latest, as we know it.

The times, they are a changin…and our racing schedule is trying to keep up

As we navigate the Covid world, the various sailing organizations and clubs are doing the same…so we all need to be patient with, and thankful for, the ever-changing race and event schedules.

We have added the YRA double handed series to our calendar of race events…and have noted the YRA’s double handed Bay Expedition date change from 8/21/21 to 7/11/21.

Take a look at the revised race calendar, and feel free to be in touch with any changes you learn of. Stay healthy. Be kind. Sam

Sunday was a light, but fun showing of AE28s for the BYC Midwinters race. Variable winds made it a fun afternoon of working through the shifts. Many thanks, Berkeley Yacht Club, for making this series possible, fun and safe during Covid.
