Secretary’s (sort of) Monthly Email Update - November
OK – I have no idea what happened to October! Well, actually I do. I was busy sailing and racing down the Chesapeake aboard Mystic Whaler for the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race.
Best laid plans…

Members in the northern and mid tier states are finally seeing the end of what seemed to be a never-ending winter and boats are launching and commissioning! My good friend Paul Sepe and I took Quintessence out for her maiden voyage of the season last Thursday.
Unlike most schooner folks I know, I grew up sailing small centerboard boats. The tippy kind. Capsizing was part of the game and appeal (unless, of course, it was late March, as my wife frequently reminds me).
I’ve managed to get this second monthly member update email together, so I’m 2 for 2 and doing great. But then again, my boat Quintessence isn’t launched yet so self-congratulations may be a bit premature!
So here goes!
I started writing this email a couple of days ago. The weather was horrible here at home about an hour north of Philadelphia. Freezing rain and sleet. A good day to be indoors. Also a good day to remind myself that spring is only a few weeks away. Hopefully the weather will catch up with the calendar.
