Cruising Team Update

Hey Sailors!

With the class ending and the weather getting colder, I think we’re going to change up cruising. We’re going to stop having the regular cruising sessions on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. If you want to go out cruising, send me or anyone on the eboard an email and we’ll get you out there. That way we don’t have to sit down at the docks for three hours if nobody is coming. I still hope you guys want to get out there a few more times before the snow falls!

Sailing for PE credit

We’re putting together a sailing gym class for next fall and need a list of who wants it to count as a 0.5 credit for PE. Please let Amy know ASAP if you want to participate, email (even if you’ve already told her in person, email again so she knows for sure).

NOTE – Participation as a co-curricular is completely optional; you can still be part of the sailing club without receiving gym credit for it. It is not required.

WHAT– Earn 0.5 PE credit, this co-curricular is NOT repeatable.

COST – Tuition for 0.5 credit will be charged to students wanting to earn co-curricular credit for the class.

REQUIREMENTS – A minimum of 21 hours over a 7 week period must be performed by each individual in order to receive credit (this can include practices and regattas). It is NOT to be completed in less than 7 sessions. A failing grade will be given to students not meeting the required number of hours.

WHEN – Whenever you can sail! For those of you that would like to race, as of now, practice times will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 3:30-6:30pm. If you are not interested in racing, there will be sailing on Saturdays and possibly a different weekday, depending on the number of people interested.
