The Rockport Yacht Club has a new to us Sailboat, it's a Harbor 20' March-20-2019
 
  
 
   

 

 This is a beautiful 20' day sailor with room for 6.She is coming to the RYC via club members Jim and Heidi Marmion. Yes they are donating this fine sailboat to our Yacht Club. Big hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi....!  The idea of such a boat is to give the RYC a method for which to teach adults as well as kids the wonderful sport of sailing. We have chosen this boat for it's ease of sailing as well as it's beautiful lines. The boat was found in Houston, she is a 2011 model in excellent condition.  Even though she is in excellent condition there are a few things we need to do as a club to get her ready to sail.....So we are scheduling a couple work days over the next couple weekends.....
      Saturday March 23rd 9:00 to 12:00
      Saturday March 30th 9:00 to ......
What needs to be done:
1) compound the hull and replace the stripes and boat name.
2) sand the bottom prep for bottom paint (she has a few blisters we will repair)
3) Bottom Paint
4) go over running and standing rigging, replace as needed.
New sails and spinnaker gear are on order for her, we can clean up the old sails for use as well (a good scrubbing).Once she is complete we will keep her in the water at the club. The bridge & board will sorted a plan for how members will be able to sail her responsibly.  We will bring her to the RYC via trailer for the work days. If you have expertise and tools in the areas for which she needs work, (or just want to help and learn) come pitch in to bring this fine Sailboat home to the RYC.  Again.....a Big Hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi...!

Awaken the Artist March 2011

Darlene and Tony Taylor kindly offered to conduct an acrylic painting class over two Saturdays beginning March 12th and ending March 19th 2011. The intent of the sessions is to help students focus on the basics of color, design, and composition. Darlene brought 30 years of higher education art teaching background and Tony offered 30 years of architecture professional experience to some 16 students. Darlene started with the fundamentals of the color wheel and a break down of color issues such as warm (aggressive), cool (receding), hue, tint, tone, shade, intensity and value. She had class members paint in primary and secondary colors on a color wheel exercising color schemes including triad, split complementary, complementary, mono-chromatic, analogous achromatic, and diad. She touched on the elements of design including line, shape, form, value, color, space and texture. She offered a guide line of steps to creating a great acrylic painting. Then for three hours we all painted an abstract from a picture we individually brought to class. She provided the brushes, paints, and paintable sheets along with other support materials. She provided detailed instructions a week before the first session regarding what we should do and bring to the first class. Everyone enjoyed the learning, fun and joking about our individual talents or lack there of. It was a great contribution to club members and guests.
