Our 2017 boating season is coming to a close. This is always a sad time of year for me where we say good-bye to our boats until next year.
If you sailed on any destination sails this summer, you probably heard the phrase
“the winds are on the nose”
Oh, what a dreaded statement! For those new to this sport, “the winds are on the nose” means the wind direction is from exactly where we are going – meaning we will be “beating” to our destination – meaning it’s going to take a “freckin” long time to get there! Well, that has been most of my destination sails this summer. (I think Dan B has the record for the most “on the nose” sails!) In honor of this summer’s winds conditions, I’ve written a short poem.
The winds are on the nose
So matey friends we are hosed
Just sit back and relax
Or else we’ll be perplexed
Wondering how long it’s gonna take
Before we catch a break
To sail gently into our slip
For us to grab a nip!
I hope your 2017 boating season was all you had hoped!
This October will be our annual Skippers Party where we will honor those men and women that make this all happen for the 170 NCSS members. It’s these few folks that dare to accept the challenges of fixing stinky heads, broken engines, and botched rigging. This is our time to say THANK YOU! Thank you for choosing this passion so we can have a wonderful time on the waters of Lake Erie.
I hope you join us Saturday October 28th to honor our Skippers.
Thank you, Skippers! You make it happen. You make this club.
