Commodore's Column
Glenn Whaley, Trinity


It's been a pretty quiet month around these parts. March is part of what we used to call "The Dark Ages" at USNA, when there was cold ground, brown trees, gray sky, no holidays in sight, and spring still not quite here. Which it still isn't yet, the calendar notwithstanding. Here it is the last part of March as I write this, and itís in the stinkiní low 30's outside! What's up with that?!

Even so, some of us are starting to unwrap our boats and start the unmothball process. 'Tis "sock-burning" time, we're told, so whatever the weather is really like we're prepping for better things to come. Part of those better things, by the way, is a planned CSC dinner at the Eastport Yacht Club, where Dave and Janet Ewing are members. Hope to see the northern contingent there for a fun time. The party will be on Friday, April 10th. Thanks, Dave and Janet, for hosting us!

We're looking ahead to an active sailing season of perhaps a week-long, several weekend, and one longer end of summer cruise. Plus the August picnic/business meeting and annual September Crab Cake Extravaganza at Rock Hall. Hope many CSC boats can plan to join the Fleet for many of our underway activities and the shore ones as well once the season gets underway.

And that's about all there is to say for the dismal month of March, heading into the stretch and into Spring. So come on, warm weather! We're ready for you!

Vice Commodore's Report
Liz Cingel, Southern Lady


We are looking forward to going to Eastport Yacht Club for dinner on Friday, April 10. To date there are 15 people coming so plan to meet at 5 PM. Thanks to Janet and Dave Ewing for hosting us. Dave suggested you ask for a separate check when you order your dinner.

Mark your calendar for the sailing clubís annual business meeting and picnic at Belvedere Yacht Club on Saturday, August 22. A new Commodore and Treasurer will be voted on at that meeting and we need people to volunteer for these offices. The annual crab cake picnic will be held at the Sailing Emporium marina on Saturday, September 19. Following the picnic we will leave on the fall cruise.

Fleet Captain's Report
Bill Stine, Whistwind

[Bill is selling Whistwind, now on the hard, so he won't be involved in the seasons boating events. See Bill's Home Page. He submited a proposed cruising schedule which is posted on the cruise schedule page and which will firm up gradually as our cruisers take turns breathing on it. ... editor]
