CSC's Week in Review: Fast Track, Cruise, Open House & Windsurfing Galore

CSC update as of 7/14, we have more than 1,000 members :)

Sunday 7/13 - we had dinghy racing, followed by an Open House and a party afterwards with the first ever performance by the CSC Band. Antony, Scott, and Kaylia serenaded their adoring crowd. Check out the video of one of their original CSC-inspired songs on Cal Sailing Club's facebook page

We had approximately 200 Open House attendees and one fearless Commander of a Pearson Commander, David Frasier, taking out eager new sailors--you're our hero, David!

July's Junior Sailing Fast Track from 7/7 - 7/11 came and went, and all we've got to show for it is a bunch of lousy pictures. Oh, and we have NINE brand spanking new juniors - congratulations!!

This one above is my favorite. Thank you Marshall for taking one for the team! :)  Jennifer, thank you being there to capture the magic. 

 

Check out the awesome series of photos from a couple of our resident photography pros, Jennifer Kroon and Seamus Vanecko.

Shout out to all of the Juniors & Seniors for teaching and testing! You're what keeps the club running day in and day out!

We also had a cruise to Angel Island on Friday 7/11, which was, alas woefully under-photographed.  Did it even happen if we don't have selfies to prove it? We cruised dinghies to Angel Island, with Mark Playsted organizing. We took the third (new) Venture for what turned out to be a shakeout sail and yours truly plummeted into the Bay when the franken-trap line we rigged broke as soon as I swung out off the rail (brrrr). Picnic on the island followed by a fun run back to Berkeley through the Slot--woohoo!

Saturday Morning sailing lessons had a whopping 60 students this week, and 20 novice windsurfers battled their way from the first to third dock during Saturday and Sunday windsurfing lessons :)

All in all a successful week with summer in full swing at CSC! See you on the water!
