|4/7/2018||CPR/First Aid Training|
The Safety Committee of The Sailing Club is pleased to sponsor CPR/AED and Basic First Aid training. These invaluable skills could save people's lives. While certification in CPR and Basic First Aid is required for all Skippers in The Sailing Club, this
session is open to all Club members, family & friends. The more people who know these life-saving skills, the safer we will all be. This year's training will use the American Heart Association (AHA) HeartSaver series of classes; we will include
AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and pocket mask. Follow the link for the signup form and all the details.
|4/14/2018||On Land Training|
The Sailing Club’s traditional (and FREE) On Land Training –
officially known as OLT (as opposed to OWT – the On The Water
segment of our member’s training regimen) is held in a
comfortable classroom with heat and room to walk around. The
heads are roomy with no restrictions on water and toilet paper
usage. Among the material covered (but not limited to) are Rules
of the Road (collisions are frowned upon), Line Handling (no
crushed fingers or over-rides, Knots (granny knots are
not cool), Chart Reading, Basic Navigation (how embarrassing to
be in the wrong river for raft-up) and Principles of
Keelboat Maneuvering (think prop walk). Please join us for
an entertaining and informative day. The training will be held
from 9:00 AM to about 3:00 PM at the Hills Highland Rec Center,
75 Hansom Road, Basking Ridge, NJ. See the 'More info' link for a
map. Please RSVP to Steve Krakauer at email@example.com
|6/1/2018||On-Water Training (OWT)|
This two-day training experience is your opportunity to get back on the water and practice your boat handling and sailing skills. On the Water Training (OWT) gives new sailors experience steering the boat and performing each role during anchoring, reefing, rescuing, and sailing. Experienced sailors have the opportunity to take command through practice maneuvers and brush up on less-used skills.
Henry the Whisker Pole This year's OWT will include exercises in line handling and steering while leaving and approaching docks, slips, and moorings. We'll practice rafting and separating as well as anchoring techniques. We'll review effective communication -- both on board and over VHF -- and practice sailing skills including sail trim, tacking, and jibing.
|6/14/2018||Meet and Greet 7:00 pm|
Ahoy Sailing Club!
We're planning our first informal social event of 2018 at The Prospect Tavern in Madison, NJ.
Join us for this Meet and Greet for libations
and maybe even dinner, while enjoying the company of friends and others whom we have yet to meet.
(Drinks and food are, of course, at your own expense)
Open to all - members and non-members. Follow the 'More Information' link for map and directions.
|6/22/2018||June Trip - Preboard|
Pre-board for the June trip.
|6/23/2018||June Trip - Up a Lazy River|
We've chartered two comfortable sloops for a lazy weekend exploration of the Magothy River. Our itinerary includes a traditional Sailing Club raft-up appetizer party and game night. We'll also spend a night at the Magothy Marina, which offers plenty of amenities for a relaxing get-away. Relatively short distances will allow for plenty of sailing or, if the wind is not in our favor, more time at anchor for swimming and socializing.
|7/8/2018||July Day Sail - CONFIRMED DATE|
It has been such an enjoyable outing the last two years, so let's do it again. Summers are always fun here in New Jersey and our own Barnegat Bay is a sailor's delight. Our plan is to reserve two boats for Sunday, July 8 with Barnegat Bay Sailing School (BBSS) located at Cedar Creek Marina, 100 Harbor Inn Rd., Bayville, NJ.
We will do the morning sail, arriving by 9:30 AM latest for the 10 AM dock departure with captains Mike and Audrey. A family-friendly sail of 2.5 hours out in Barnegat Bay with an experienced local captain is a great way to get an introduction to what sailing is all about.
