Commodore’s View for August 2014
View from Catalina Island
By Deedy Payne, 2014 LPSC Commodore
The winds were blowing and the sun was shining. The California weather did not disappoint once again. Four LPSC boats sailed to Catalina Island the second week of July and had a remarkable time enjoying the beaches, restaurants, and ambiance of Two Harbors and Avalon. If you have not had the experience of sailing off the coast of California, it is something you need to do. Enjoying the week with others from the club makes it even better. It is easy to charter a sailboat in Marina del Rey and head out across the sea. The sail to Catalina takes about 7 hours and sometimes you do have to motor because the wind can be on your nose. You can see land most of the way, when the skies are clear. If you are lucky, you will see dolphins, but for sure you will see seals. This is a not to be missed sail that our club members would recommend you do at least once in your sailing lifetime. Plan on joining us in July 2015 for a weeklong sail to paradise!
Thank you to Tim and Rhonda Brewer for organizing this cruise. We partied on the beach in Two Harbors, dined together (fresh seafood – yummmmm) in Avalon, took interior tours, visited the tile factory and made tiles, toured the Casino, enjoyed libations, and had a fabulous afternoon sail in the Pacific. It was great to see the Brewers, their son Brad and his girlfriend Yuka, Donna and Arlyn Benson, Sammi and Rick Majors, Stan Ferris, his daughter Elisabeth, Dennis Lynde, Linda Saar, and Mark and Louise Parker in Catalina. Thanks to all who made it a fun week.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in August at the General Meeting on August 19th. This is the opportunity for you to share what you do with the membership. We want to hear from you!! Please plan on sharing your business, hobby, or passion especially if it has to do with sailing. You can set up a table to showcase your products, pass out your cards and/or samples, or just stand up and tell us about what you do. Email me to let me know that you plan to participate. We look forward to hearing from our boating specialists, realtors, artists, business people, and others. Don’t miss the opportunity to share and hear from others. Mark August 19th on your calendar. We will see you at the Rolling Hills Caddy Shack at 6:00 for a no-host dinner and at 7:00 for the meeting and sharing time.
Don’t forget the Beat the Heat event in Prescott! If you have questions or want to go, email Carolyn Cronin.
Stay cool and we look forward to getting back on the water soon!
