How Many Thistle Sailors Does It Take to Screw Up a Dock?

How Many Thistle Sailors Does It Take to Screw Up a Dock?

Answer: Ten, based on the small work-party that labored to make repairs while the water was low. The project was to restore the wood “bumpers” covering the concrete at the small hoist dock wall. The repair is intended to add one or two seasons before a more extensive project is necessary. One new feature is a ladder that will make it easier to get in and out of the boats with low water. 

EYC Offers Hands-Only CPR Class April 29

Dave Brown and the Lane Fire Authority are offering a free CPR class April 29 in the EYC clubhouse.

This is a hands only class and will cover choking and AED use. No card will be issued. This class is intended for Sail School volunteers, Race & Rescue committee, but is appropriate for anyone who wants to know the basics of what to do in an emergency situation.

The class is limited to 20 people. If more are interested, there may be another class scheduled. There is no cost, but registration is required.

Please note that volunteers will need to complete a background check prior to Sail School.
