Memorial Day Regatta is coming up soon, and I would like to request that those with boats and trailers in the center parking area get them moved to the back row along the west fence. If you plan to put your boat in before the regatta, there is no need to move it beforehand. But we do need the center island to be clear before the regatta to welcome our visiting sailors.
I would also like to request once more that as you use the floating docks, please check your hinge pins and hairpin clips. If a clip breaks, it can be replaced before the hinge pin falls out. The clips are a lot less expensive then the pins. Also look at the cross-members for the 3/8 hinge plates on Dock C. If they are cracked or missing, let Paul Stephens or myself know so we can address that issue before it becomes a problem. This year we are running a test on several fingers that have bolts and not hinge pin and hairpin clips. We will be watching to how well they hold up.
