Beautiful Day at Spreckles Lake Today

Beautiful Day in the park today. Winds are very light and the water is so clear that you can see the bottom. Lots of carp swimming by as well. Bob SF

Hi Sunworksco, you and your son will enjoy the boat. My favorite part of its design is its simplicity. You grab the radio, charge the batteries, put the big blue bag in the car and go. Callie Graphics. www.callie-graphics.com did the decals and sail numbers for me and her work is really good and her prices are more than fabulous. Come out and sail with us.

beer-can racing Saturday afternoon

Several of us will splash sailboats after the SFMYC's February meeting. Join us. Beer-can racing is informal, without forms, fees, prizes and Nothing But Fun (NBF). More boats are more better. Big, little, new, old, light, heavy, free-sail, RC. What's the point? Good people with good boats make for a good time. CU on the water. Jenthusiast without portfolioT

meeting/.frostbite.beer-can

Informative short meeting and excellent winter projects on display (frostbite) plus warm air, light winds and good camaraderie make for a hugely successful Beer-Can Race #5. Thanks to Jim, Bud, Ryan, Jeff, plus others for splashing boats today. Attaboys!

Beer-can race #6 is penciled in for Monday of Memorial Day weekend. More to follow. We hope the 3 Wheelers (79" LOA) and many SBOD's (70" LOA) will to be on Spreckels Lake Monday of Memorial Day weekend for a show of big boats along with FOOTYs and everything in between early in this sailing season.

Millertime. In answer to the Dixie Lea. She was built by Al Collins in the 1970's. When he passed it was donated to the SFMYC in 1979. I am taking care of her at this time. She was scratch built using plans, profile line drawing of the "Southern Belle". The plans appear to be from Germany, "Mississippi-Schubschiff, SOUTHERN BELLE, Vorbildgetreues RC-Model Fur, Elektromotor-Antrieb, Von, Dieter Mack." Here is some data: length; 29 1/2", OAL: 37", beam 11 1/4", draft: 1 1/2", paddle wheel: 7x7". I don't know what the motor & gear box came from. It has a miniature bike chain from motor/gear box to crank shaft. It is running Futaba 4 channel w/ ESC, 7.2 V NMH battery, steam whistle sound from RAM, and now has a 6V smoke unit from Australia that I got from E-bay. Hope this helps. E-mail me if you have more questions. Cpl.fuzz

March 9 Sat (12:30pm) The Rag Top/Stink Pot Regatta

Feb Nautical News:
March 9 – Opening Day The RagTop/StinkPot Regatta
The RagTop/StinkPot Regatta will be held on Saturday, March 9th starting, officially, around 13:00 hours on the north side of the Lake at the starting gate of the Sail Squadron’s (the RagTops) racing course. As this the sailing season’s opening day for both squadrons, and everyone appears to be chomping at the bit already, it was decided in the January meeting to forgo the March meeting and just ‘git into the water!’ That being the case, the Power Boat Squadron (the StinkPots) can get an early start on their sea legs in the morning over in the regular ‘restricted waters’ area against the South Shore next to JFK Drive before walking their boats over to the ‘Sail Side’ on the North Shore for the competition, but more about that in the March Nautical News.

Thanks tugs

I'd say come on out and play early in the day on the south shore scale area (inside the buoys) then as time gets close, head on over to the north side of the Lake for the regatta. Don't forget a spare set of batteries for the regatta!!
