Wow, if you missed all the events of last Saturday, you missed a double doozey. The wind for the Double-Double in the morning was on the high side of fantastic. The food, music, and decorations of the luau and camaraderie of our fellow sailors was out of this world. Join me in publicly thanking the many volunteers that pulled this off. We have the best volunteers with incredible attitudes. (Good thing because we are an all-volunteer club!)
If you have been looking for chance to make your volunteerism shine, then I have an opportunity that you will love! Did you know there will be youth sail camp on the waters of Hamilton Creek Marina from July 8th to August 9th? Well I am proud to say Nashville Sail Camp will be here! If you haven’t seen the cove filled with youngsters sailing dinghies, you are in for a treat. We have opened up 10 half day, week long volunteer opportunities called the Club Observer or CO for short. You are welcome to take two slots for a whole day of volunteering. The CO will have a radio to stay in contact while the campers are on the water. You can do things like monitor the radar and get involved in the activities as much as you desire. Think camp mom, dad, granny, or papa. Then the CO and the camp director will choose the “Camper of the Week” and present them with an award from PPYC. How cool is that! (Be sure to send me pictures.)
John Summers, member and owner of Sail Nashville will be the ring leader for the volunteers. He is at the lake a good bit already because of his ASA certified training school he runs out of Hamilton Creek Marina. We appreciate his willingness to lead up this volunteer effort. But he can’t do it alone, so please fill up those volunteer slots ASAP!
See the PPYC Calendar for upcoming events.
Let’s go sailing!
