Dukeminier, Rear Commodore for Race, reports a good amount of activity in March
considering the blustery weather we've had. Corinthians, Lightnings and Flying
Scots have turned out fleets on several Sunday afternoons. Our Sunday program is
getting off to a healthy start for the new season. Special thanks go to the
Snipe fleet for fielding a race committee on Easter Sunday.
6 - Spruce Up Day – A few hardy souls braved threatening (and some actual)
rain to repair docks, plumbing and electrical under Mo Berry’s able direction.

attendees were observed bringing beer but no sails to the clubhouse.

Junior Sail Camps: June 3-14; June
17-28 and July 1-12
to instructor staffing and equipment limitations, the previously announced
junior sailing camp schedule has been altered slightly to add a third camp
session and to change the dates for the July Session and the Advanced Race
I will be held from June 3-14 and will culminate with CSC’s hosting of a Texas
Sailing Association Juniors’ Circuit Regatta the weekend of June 15-16.
Preference for registration to Session I will be given to Juniors who have
attended a previous CSC sail camp or plan to compete in the TSA Junior Circuit
Regatta hosted by CSC on June 15-16. The emphasis in Session I will be preparing
our junior sailors to compete in CSC’s regatta. Session II will be held from
June 17-28 and will be geared more to beginner and intermediate level sailors.
Session III will be held from July 1-12 and, while it will still be appropriate
for beginners, Session III will be more race oriented than Session II, with an
eye toward preparing our junior sailors for participation in Texas Race Week
later that month from July 20-27.
forms for Sessions I, II, and III can be obtained by contacting Sandy Denison at
email@example.com. Forms will also be posted on the website and made
available in the clubhouse. Register early for the best chance at securing a
spot in the session of your choice. As in past years each camp day will begin at
9am and end at 2pm. Your child’s safety is our first concern; therefore, due
to instructor staffing limitations, each session will be limited to
approximately 17 juniors. The fee will be $125 for each 9am-2pm two week camp
session. For a limited number of juniors interested in race training, we will be
offering two extra hours of intensive race training by the coach from 2 to 4 PM
each day for an additional fee of $50 per session.
register for the camps the junior must have a parent or grandparent who is
either a full or associate member of CSC.
Advanced Race Training Camp and
Texas Race Week: July 15-27
one-week Advanced Race Training Camp will be held from July 15-18 in preparation
for the July 20-27 Texas Juniors Race Week in Houston. Friday the 19th
will be a travel day for our coach and juniors to Houston. This camp session
will be limited to junior sailors serious about racing who plan to attend Texas
Race Week. The camp fee will be $125 for the one week session which will run
from 9 to 4 each day and will include on the water coaching during Texas Race
Week. For registration information contact Sandy Denison 214-826-3998.
AYC Jr. Roadrunner Regatta
juniors Myles Busch, Tommy Hudson and Paul Denison attended the Austin Yacht
Club’s TSA Junior Circuit "Roadrunner" Regatta on March 23-24. With
winds gusting to 30 and swells of 3 feet on Lake Travis, it was not a regatta
for the faint hearted. The conditions proved somewhat severe for our Optimist
Green Fleeters, but Tommy and Myles should be proud that they were able to get
out on the racecourse to compete in such conditions. It was an experience both
can build on and they had a great time too boot. Paul notched consistent top ten
overall finishes in the Combined Optimist Red/Blue/White Fleets and he took home
a trophy finishing fourth among the 11-12 year old Blue Fleeters, missing 3rd
by a point. The regatta was attended by the best junior sailors in Texas, all of
whom will descend on CSC to compete with all our juniors on June 15-16 during
the TSA Junior Circuit’s stop at our club. Let’s all start practicing now!!
