Maskwa is ready... are you??

Hi all!!

Sit down with some fine java, this email has some info going on…

Maskwa is mostly ready. Don and Steve are going up today to build the mast. This week it will be stepped, splashed in, and then we'll need to get her running rigging up.

Delivery Saturday, May 2.

Let me know if you can make it this Saturday and if anyone is coming with you!

There are some friends on here who are certainly interested in sailing, but have not spent a lot of time on the boat… or any boat. That is fine, but the delivery is probably not the best way to start. It is still cold out on the lake, and it can be a bit of an uphill slog.

For all the rest of us-----

The plan is…..

It is a FAR better option to take the train than it is to drive. Metra has trains running Saturday morning. Here is the schedule for May 2nd.

Station    Times
Train:        801        803        805

Ogilvie        6:35    8:35    10:35
Clybourn    6:43    8:43    10:43
Ravenswood    6:48    8:48    10:48
Rogers Park    6:53    8:52    10:52

Waukegan    7:55    9:50    11:50

Fare from Ogilvie to Waukegan is $7.50.

If we have a decent group on a train (I suggest Train #803) then anyone who has not walked from the station to the boat will know where to go.

Don is planning on leaving the dock at 1100. We all know this could be right on time, or a bit later.

We need a good count to make sure there are enough hard life jackets. That water is cold, and an inflatable pfd might be nice, but you want the real deal in case of some unintended swimming.

More news….

Don has informed me that his schedule has changed for May, and he will not be in Indonesia for the 2nd half of May. So, we'll get a bit more time on the water!

So far----

MAY

Delivery May 2.

Wednesday May 13 (optional)
ColYC Runs their Beercan College Class. If you are interested in the hows and whys, this could be interesting.

Wednesday May 20 Beercan Tune Up

Wednesday May 27 Beercan #1 (Race series continues thru Sep 2.)

As of yet, we are not planning on doing any of the course races in May.

We have a lot of work to do to get ready for the long distance races, and we'll be rebuilding a bit. This is not a problem,  but a Sunday or Saturday race day would be far better spent with 3 or 4 hours on the water practicing than racing.

JUNE

Now we start to get moving!!

Wednesday June 3 Beercan #2

We may make our debut with the Colors Long Distance Regatta.
Saturday June 6 Colors LD
Sunday June 7 Colors Regatta (pin race)

Wednesday June 10 Beercan #3

Friday-Sunday June 12-14 Chicago NOOD Regatta.

Wednesday June 17 Beercan #4

Saturday June 20 Chicago to Waukegan (overnight in Waukegan)
Sunday June 21 Waukegan to Chicago

Wednesday June 24 Beercan #5

Friday June 26 Chicago to Michigan City to Chicago round trip and overnight!

--July--

Wednesday July 1 Beercan #6

It is an early Mac Race this season, so that is all the racing we will have before the Mac!! We will be doing quite a bit more practice and preparation.

For those of you who ARE regulars, or want to be regular crew on the boat, I'll be sending a link with passwords reset for CrewSignup.

This is going to be a big season. Let's be ready!
