Great day on the lake!


5 SBOD's held off-season SBOD "beer-can" Race 1 today. Next SBOD beer-can Race 2 is November 10 following the membership meeting (during the swap-meet).

Light winds in the early races gave way to a gentle breeze towards the end making it a t-shirt day in GG Park(?!)....Who's got it better than that?! (Go Niners!)

Reminder: SBOD off-season "beer-can" racing is not sanctioned with no fees, food or prizes. Some of us need an SB hit once a month during the off season. 5 SB's were great but we're looking for 6 7 8 9 10. More are more better (sic)!

A big shout-out to Stephen, Bob & Jim with a special thanks to Ryan for the help dialing in 443's rigging. Some day 443 will lead the pack-Ha!

SB's out there, the pond is open-join us!

It was a fun weekend....




It was a fun weekend - everyone had a bang-up time at the 'Fleet Day' military regatta.

Pictures to follow as I get 'em done.

The swap meet will follow our very abbreviated club general meeting- I would expect the tables to go up @11:15-11:30 am, in the clubhouse.

Hope to see you there!

In addition to the meeting & swap-meet, note- SB skippers when finished selling/buying at the swap meet may want to join the off-season SBOD "beer-can" (pick-up) race #2 Nov. 10th, 1-3pm (six races planned). Race #1 had 5 SBs. So, we're looking for #6 7 8 9 10+ this time. Make it a big day-go to the membership meeting then buy/sell @ the swap-meet capping it off with SB "beer-can" racing. Its all good!

hold the 1st of 5 off-season "beer-can" races.
No applications, fees, food or prizes. Just SBs racing for the hell-of-it.
1st of six races (more if there is interest) begin at 1pm
Looking for 6th SBOD (or more)
UPDATE-
off-season SBOD "beer-can" race #1 was a huge success. 5 SBs raced 6 races.
off-season SB "beer-can" race #2 will follow the Nov 10 membership meeting and swap-meet with the first race starting at 1pm. There are 6 races planned. We're looking for the 6th, 7th, 8th+ SB to join us. Remember: "beer-can" (pick-up) off-season racing is un-official, no fees, forms, food or prizes...just SBs putting the rail down during the off-season.

In-house AND out-house (sic) SB's are welcome. Splash your boat...Let's get it on.

Spreckels Lake, GG Park, San Francisco, 1pm-3pm Saturday, November 10th CU there!

Sub Committee Mare Island - 2012 West Coast Sub Fun Run




The SubCommittee's Mare Island, California squadron once again hosted their yearly "West Coast Fun Run"
at the Western Casting Pond in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park over the weekend of the 20/21 of October.

Since this event was hosted by SubCommittee Mare Island, not the SFMYC and mainly
for the submariner community, the pictures are posted over in the Submarine Forum.

"Click on the pic" to see the pictures...
