Summertime...and the livin' is easy...

Have you been out on the water since summer?  Don't be a fair-weather sailor!  Bring a friend, or email the listserv to find a buddy and give the boats some cool-weather exercise!  Study up on wetsuits for dinghy sailing or ask to take a keelboat ride with a recent graduate of the keelboat classes!

The second boat is a Cal 3-30, which were only made between 1973-74.  Know any neat links on these keelboats?  Send them to
