fundraising dinner, held on August 23 at the Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club,
was an incredible success.We
had over 90 RSVP's for this fabulous evening of home cooked Greek food. It
was a great mix of folks from all four of our sailing clubs (DCYC, FWBC,
RCYC and CSC). The evening started off with appetizers of pita bread to
dip into hummus and tzatziki or smother with feta cheese.As twilight descended, we were treated to a the main course
smorgasbord of Greek salad, tabouli, pastitsio (Greek lasagna), green
beans with lamb, spanikopita, dolmas, and home made Greek bread.After everyone was nice and full and munching on home made Greek
cookies, our auction started with the help of Mr. Bob Sinclair from DCYC.We want to thank everyone who attended, donated and supported us in
making this a fabulous success.
next step is packing the boat up and driving it to Annapolis. We will race in the East Coast
Championships the weekend of Sept. 19-21 as a warm up for Rolex.
4 Texas' plan to get the boat up to Annapolis and race in the East Coast Championships
this weekend may be 'thwarted ' by Hurricane Isabel's attempt to crash the
party! Racing for Friday has been canceled, and they are waiting to see
where Isabel heads before canceling the regatta or changing it to "ISHI"
(I Survived Hurricane Isabel).
F Adams Cup in Flying Scots
Saturday Sept. 6, 2003
Sailing Club, WhiteRockLake
competitors: 3 entries from CSC, 1 from FWBC
winds were light: 1.5 - 5 mph in the morning with some short lived 8-10
mph winds showing up in the late afternoon (race 3 to be exact). The
wind direction: well for before the first race it was anywhere from 45 -
175 degrees. At different times during the day we sailed in Easterlies, Westerly and NE breeze. The
lead in Race One changed with every leg of the W (2.5) race. Any pre-start
wind info was valid for the first two legs, then it all changed.Post race one, even the female judge shook her head in sympathy.The breeze went from light to non-existence so we took our lunch
break and didn't return to the water till late afternoon (approx. ).
race was attempted. The race committee set up a course for the SE breeze
that existed at the start.The
wind died right at the start, then shifted W, then N, and then W. The race
was abandoned and we all headed down to the other end of the lake.
race 4 we had the pleasure of being lifted at least 70 degrees in a puff
going up wind, and beating to the leeward mark in light winds.
the competition was "close", with the competitor's all finishing
within a third of a leg of each other.
the awards ceremony, Kai, Renee and Debbie presented Greta's team CSC/
Area F Adams Cup caps to wear proudly at the National event in October at LakeNorman.
