Commodore’s View  for November 2014

View from the Helm

By Deedy Payne, 2014 LPSC Commodore

Sailing season here in the desert is upon us. Twelve boats kicked off the season the last weekend in October at the Commodore’s Cruise and Raft Up. After an afternoon sail with light winds and an oldies trivia game, we anchored and paddled around in the cool water, watched the sun go down, sipped wine, and drank cool beers. Honeymoon Cove was as beautiful as ever, although Sunday morning it claimed another LPSC anchor. Sunday, about seven boats took out guests, and over 20 of us ended up in the Waterfront Grille sharing appetizers and stories. In addition to the “on the water” events, we also had about 12 LPSC members show up for our “Highway Clean Up” at Arizona Game & Fish. By my best estimate, we had over 50 folks participate! What a great turn out and exciting way to usher in the 14-15 sailing tour.

One of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain is: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Think about the opportunities for sailing in the next six months and make a pledge to get out on the water! Life and time are short and the beauty of our lake is calling to us. The temperatures are right and the company is excellent. I hope to see you at the Surf and Turf this weekend and at the General Meeting on the 18th. Please consider getting involved in our club. It takes all of us to make it a success!!
