February at the Sailing School

It’s been a crazy month at the Annapolis Sailing School and we haven’t even started sailing yet!  We’ve been busy with classes, rebuilding our boats, rebuilding our beach and dredging our slips.  Our KBC members went racing in St. Thomas and have been busy gearing up for the racing season.  Check it all out below:

This month we had a repeat of our knots class:

We also had members test their racing skills down in St. Thomas:

Ian taught a cooking class based on knife skills and easy boat recipes.  We made a “no refrigeration” vegetable soup,  “stay on the rail” omelet bites and learned to use up leftovers in grilled cheeses – think beyond the American cheese and white bread.  Here is the video from last year’s fried rice and frittata class:

Our resident Boy Scout and IB  student Henry Meyer consulted with the Chesapeake Bay Trust about firming up our beach with plants.  This has resulted in some big happenings:

KBC members Maille and Jamey published a series of racing videos to help everybody get ready for the racing season.  Here is one below:

Finally, we’ve been working away on the boats:  new bottom paint for all of them, new goosenecks and new tiller heads.  The new goosenecks will stop the booms pulling out of the mast and the new tiller heads should take most of the play out of the tiller/ rudder post attachment.  We also decorated the green Caraluna by Tartan 245 for St. Patrick’s Day.  Check out the picture gallery below:

It sure has been quite the month!
