We are less than a month away from the time when members start to seriously think about putting their boat into the water. April 1, which this year falls on Monday, is the day when the club traditionally begins its activities, with water and power being turned on to the trailers. Also the fleets gear up for the first race of the season.
This year April 4 signals the beginning of the spring racing series, so I would like to remind everyone not to overlook your safety equipment before you head out on your boat. Does your boat have life jackets for everyone? Do you have a throwable floating cushion handy? Do you have a signaling device? Have you and your crew practiced a man-overboard plan? Finally, make sure that you have a current Oregon Registration sticker on your boat.
