We are only a little over 1 week away from our annual Keelboat Regatta and the excitement is growing. Whether you are a racing pro or just want to have a lot of fun, this is great way to get out on the water with our sailing community and have a good time! We are looking forward to a fun day of racing followed by a BBQ Social. Register soon to save some dubloons.
Early registration for USA Sailing Regatta, ends June 6th.

MORE BOATS IN NEED OF CREW
We've had a few requests for locating crew for the upcoming USA Sailing Regatta, June 8, on Utah Lake. If anyone wants to get on a boat as crew, contact us and we'll see if we can get you a ride. And all you Skippers out there, let us know if you're short handed. Let's get ready to rumble, all you go-fasters.
Taking the dinghy ashore
We just got back from our annual Catalina Island Cruise, that being the latest post on our new blog. We welcome responses and involvement from our sailing community. Our inland sailors rock and we have such great resources all around us. You may recall our shout out for the Bahamas to the Chesapeak blue water voyage aboard Nepomuk. Peter and crew left the Bahamas, May 20th and are somewhere in between landfalls. Let's have some fun with this. The first person to guess the closest day/hour they tie up in the Chesapeake will win a "FREE" crew spot aboard an Olson 30 for our next Intro to Racing clinic. Submit entries to email@example.com
CRANE POSSIBILITIES LOOKIN' GOOD
We've had some great response to our call for help to get a mast crane erected down at the Provo Marina. John and Cindy have sent us these pictures of a telephone pole crane used to help drop the mast on their beloved Capri 26, Coyote, as she came back home to Utah. And Alan, who is a boss man with Provo City, has his eye on a 45' long telephone pole. Mitch also has connections with folks in the know when it comes to telephone poles. Our Park Ranger Jason has given us the green light on installing such a pole for stepping masts. If you have expertise with planting large poles in the ground, or would like to volunteer to be involved in this project, please let us know. This is a pretty big deal to have such an improvement down at the marina. Thanks to all who have been instrumental in getting this done.
INTRO TO RACING COMING UP
If you missed our last Intro to Racing, Olson 30 Showcase, it's coming 'round again. We had a great crew that experienced some truely incredible sailing conditions. Don't be left at the dock this time. Call now to reserve your spot for June 13th, 6 - 8 PM.
