Keelboat Spring Maintenance Workdays - - Jack Townsend

The last two weekends the keelboat boat captains have been very busy opening up and working on special projects to prepare the keelboats for this year’s sailing season, and there is still a lot of work to do. This Saturday, March 31st, is shrink wrap removal day, weather permitting, and the boat captains need your help. We will be removing the shrink wrap, bundling it up for disposal, removing the support lumber and tubing and hauling those items to the sail garage for storage.


Please plan on coming out and helping your boat captains prepare the boats for the 2012 sailing season, you can contact the boat captains and let them know you will be out or just come on out - plan to arrive at Jefferson Beach by 9:30 a.m. Jefferson Beach Marina is located on Jefferson Ave (Nautical Mile) between 9 mile and 10 mile. The marina is gated so you will need a gate code to enter, the codes are changed weekly during the season, for pre-season entry please use code 0347, until we can get the weekly codes out to you.


We only have a few Saturdays left before we launch the boats on Tuesday April 24th. There will be additional information in next week’s Burgee regarding the upcoming keelboat work days for April and early May for both your volunteer hours and student class (maintenance) requirements.

Calendar alert! Heads up!

Spring has sprung! We're almost there!


Here are some dates to put in your calendar:

  • Saturday, April 14 We'll begin Interlake prep at Crawford Farm.

  • Saturday, April 28 Transport of dock boxes to Kent Lake, continue boat prep at Crawford Farm

We have a shortened spring prep schedule because of Easter on April 8, but work should be greatly eased due to the work done last fall in shrink-wrapping the boats.  


We'll need lots of hands on deck on these dates in April and for the Interlake launch, so be sure to enter these dates in your calendar. Spring's coming! Details to follow in the weekly Burgees.
