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...!

Our RYC members came through again (of course!) and worked together to have a great event. Thank you to Each and Every person, off shore and on shore, on the dock, in the galley, putting fence up & down, parking the boat trailers, etc. Yes, What A Weekend! Thank you every one. It would not, could not have happened without your help.
Do you remember the wind in Rockport being under 15mph?
SATURDAY JUNE 19 the wind was under 5mph until about noon. Then it hopped right up to 5.7 mph. The lasers did launch at 11 a.m. The opti's launched after noon.
WAITING FOR WIND
What a beautiful photo. Look at that gorgeous sky.
Look at that flat smooth water.
Sunday June 20 was another story. No wind Saturday turned into Windy Sunday. Check the Rockport Yacht Club Facebook page for videos of the bay on the Opti Red White & Blue course on Sunday.
Between no wind and then too much wind, it was a challenging regatta for the sailors. All three fleets were able to get in the correct number of races. Everyone did have fun.
