Third Annual July Blue Chips Charity Regatta

OHSC-4.png
Saturday, July 16th is our Third Annual “Blue Chips” Charity Regatta, to benefit cancer research and the Susan G. Komen Foundation in memory of Nancy Valego.  Nancy was a founding and lifetime member of Oak Hollow Sailing Club who passed away three years ago.  Her legacy lives on in her sailboat, “Blue Chips” which is owned and sailed by a former sailing student and current member of the club.  Most of the local Sailing community knew of Nancy and her passion and commitment to teaching sailing.  She was responsible for establishing OHSC as the educators for High Point University’s sailing class.  That teaching arrangement has provided the club with the opportunity to keep our dues affordable, and keeps us in an ideal position to share our love and knowledge of sailing with young people who may make it a lifelong hobby.  What better way to promote our sport!

At the regatta, we will accept donations of your choice to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Please come and show support in honor of an inspirational former member of our sailing community!

Cheers,

OHSC June Regatta Recap

100_5946Oak Hollow Sailing Club held its June Regatta on June 18, 2016, with beautiful sailing conditions.    The regatta was attended by 36 members, with guests Rodney Joslin and Phillip Coley as crew for Mike Nordahl and Art Hudgins respectively. Winds ranged from 9 to 15 mph with stronger gusts. Thirteen boats had registered to participate, but due to a combination of wind conditions and equipment problems, only eight boats sailed in the races.  Although there were some close calls during the regatta, there were no capsizes.

Thank you to all our volunteers on Saturday. They were as follow:

Apparel Sales: Rosalie Austin, Sue Cole

Race Committee: PRO: Mike Mullins

Course set-up assistance: Tom Kirkman

Safety Boats: Jerry Eldred, Gene Eldred, Karla Duperault

Roger Bates, Bruce Leigh

Signal Boat:  Allison Mullins, Dari Starkey, Dave Blair

Captains meeting was held at 10:30 a.m., and was handled by Linda Marsh, who welcomed the group and recognized our guests. In consideration that winds were expected to be double-digit with significant gusts, Phil Andrews held a short demonstration for all (using his Laser as a visual aid) on the running rigging changes that could and should be made on higher wind days (outhaul, downhaul, and boom vang adjustments).  Thank you, Phil!  No capsizes, so everyone apparently listened. PRO, Mike Mullins covered course set-up and starting sequences and sent the sailors out for the regatta.

We had two sailors who made their racing debuts on Saturday.  Chuck Starkey captained his family’s Harpoon 4.6, with Gary Gooden as crew, and Bill Inmon captained his American 14.6 with Les Eger as crew. Congratulations for getting out there, Chuck and Bill! We hope you enjoyed the experience and learned a lot about your respective boats under the conditions we had. Thank you Gary and Les for crewing!

Also, please remember our Sailing Social for June, scheduled for this Thursday, June 23, at 6 pm, at Ham’s Restaurant at the Palladium in High Point.

Finally, VERY IMPORTANT!!!  Our Blue Chips Charity Regatta in memory of Nancy Valego (to benefit Cancer Research), is scheduled for Saturday, July 16th. You will be receiving information about the event this week.  Make sure to note the starting times will be moved an hour earlier than normal (due to the City of High Point making a shelter booking error). Captains’ Meeting will be at 9:30 a.m. for that event.

Our next social event will be at Hamm’s at the Palladium (5840 Samet Dr, High Point) next Thursday June 23rd!  6:30 – 9:00pm. We have the large Friendly Table reserved for our group located next to the pool tables.  They have daily drink specials and their menu is quite delicious (see below).

The winds are looking very favorable for this Saturday’s regatta, so there should be plenty of conversation around the races at the social.  Fair winds mates!

Your friendly Social Benevolence/Malevolence Committee
