March Newsletter

February ended after 29 days of great weather and some fun sailing and the best race committee duty ever! We are having great weather!  2016 is off to a great start for Sailing!

We have a time change to the start of Saturday races. They will start at 10:30AM.  We have had nice participation.  Please note the change in time – we don’t want to start without you!!!

Daylights savings time is March 13th.  The first Laser Wednesday night race will be March 16th.  The scored series will begin March 30th.

The Regatta schedule is out! Please save these dates. We will have several members going to these regattas. Let us know if you plan to attend and we will work on establishing a Laser caravan.  Not quite as easy as Uber but much more fun! The Month will be capped by the Austin Yacht Club Easter Laser Regatta.  Several Dallas Laser Fleet Members plan to attend the regatta.  It is worth the trip to sail in a big fleet of very friendly and competitive Laser Sailors.  This is a good year for Lake Travis since the lake level is up to normal elevation.  Let us know if you are going to the regatta!

By the way we had four Lasers (Alex, Eileen, Bryan and Jody) out on the lake on the 2nd for Death Roll practice.  With 20+ knots of wind it went very well!!!  Practice makes perfect!
