WELCOME TO THE 2020 SEASON OF C SCOW SAILING! What a relief to think of – very soon – getting the boats out of storage, loading up the sails, ordering the new sailing gloves and maybe even getting some fresh PFDs for yourself and the team. Lining up crew. Checking regatta weekends on your calendar. Winter always feels like a long time between 5 minute prep warnings. It’s when the C class flag goes up on the committee boat and you and your team check your watches, cut the chatter and dig your place into the starting line. That anticipation as the fresh sails luff into the wind, competitors debate for room and position and the count down starts…
ten, nine, eight – sheet in and get going to keep from getting trucked by the boat to weather
seven, six, five – concentrate, don’t stall, get the bow up, stay in the clean air, accelerate
four, three, two – did you shift gears too early? Did you underestimate how close you were to the line?
one, gun – speed, speed, speed!
Committee boat hails “All clear”!
And everyone, at that moment, has a chance to win the race.
So let’s get the boats out. Call your friends. Get involved at your Club and help make your home regatta the best it can be. Invite those who haven’t sailed before out to the Club, onto a boat and get them involved. Enjoy watching them get hooked! Help a kid. Teach. Pass it on. Check your rig and your gear. Make it fun by making it safe. And make a plan. Go to a lake you’ve never raced on. Go back to the one you got it “handed to you on” and do it better. And by all means go back to the lake you tore up last year and prove you can do it again.
Just get out there and GO SAILING!
