Venture Fasteners Spring Spinnaker Series Races #2 & #3

Posted by AJ Miceli on June 4, 2013

It was breezy Sunday morning.  We arrived at the boat and the winds were about 20kts in the slip, gusting to 25.  We decided not to sail.  A few other hardy boats went out and raced one race and then the race committee cancelled the 2nd race due to the winds.

So, we did not put the crew or the boat at risk (especially before the Interclub), and we really didn’t miss much.

2013 Racing Schedule Posted

Posted by AJ Miceli on May 17, 2013

It has taken me a while longer this year, but I’m catching up with the Schedule and Results page. Look along the top and you’ll see the 2013 Schedule and Results tab. I’ve only put a few of the races in so far — it’s a very manual process. So, I’ll get more races in later.

Making Progress

Posted by AJ Miceli on April 15, 2013

It was 42 degrees and not raining on Sunday, so I got the boat washed and one half of the hull buffed (one half, because a hull has two sides, and a 27-foot boat is actually 54 linear feet).

Today is Monday, and it’s in the 60’s today.  I hope to get 2 hours of work in tonight after work!

Spring Prep Begins

Posted by AJ Miceli on April 6, 2013

Well, it was supposed to be 50 today, so I went down to touch up the bottom where the cover straps wore off the VC17 and to wash the hull.

I got the touch up finished (see below) then I connected the hoses to wash the hull.  No water yet!

Arrrgggh.  We’ll have to wait for the washing.   Oh, and it never got about 41 today.  More to come.

Boating Season Begins

Posted by AJ Miceli on March 30, 2013

It was 47 degrees and sunny today in Erie, so I declared Spring and took the cover off of the boat.  Thanks to Mark Platteter for the help.  It only took an hour, and now we can start thinking about boat prep if it doesn’t snow again (which it might)!

Only 39 days to the first race.

End of Season — Mast Down

Posted by AJ Miceli on October 7, 2012

I still have to post the recaps for the final couple races.  But ’tis the season for packing up the boat.  We took the mast down in the rain today.  Thanks to Rosemary and Andy (shown here) and Mike O’Neill and his crew.  It was very iffy.  The low water level was giving us some fits.  The lake level is way down and we did hit some mud on the way to the well.  And you could see some concrete slabs off the port right before the well.

I have an appointment to be pulled on Thursday morning.
