After Passing the Cape of Good Hope, Dave got to open up the Good Hope Goodies that Lillian had packed for him. We were very lucky to get thjkhhjkhjlgis update from Dave.
Greetings PAYC members and incoming Bridge!
My adventure in the Global Solo Challenge
Has sent me from the South Atlantic Ocean into the Indian Ocean!
Having passed the Longitude of the cape of Good Hope this week my adventure into another Ocean begins .
I had my best 24 hour run of 260nm coming up to this first great cape which felt great! It was a fast couple days of sailing that saw me move up in the standings just a little. That was a good feeling, not like my accidental un-planned gybe in the dark a few nights ago! But nothing was damaged and it was pretty easy to sort out. Life is good here at 40 degrees South, though chilly at night. My cockpit enclosure acts as a sun-room in the afternoon as it faces west helping to warm things up on the days that the sun is out.
I do have a small diesel furnace to take the chill out of the cabin as well as warm and dry my boots! So not relying on the sun totally.
Having sailed to the suggested southern limit of our course East bound l have jibed to the next waypoint at 42 00.0 South and 45 00.0 East .
Another fast day of sailing today steady at 9-10knots with the occasional surf in the high teens!
The PAYC will be turning into The Bouncing Barnacle, a pirate ship that has just docked in Santa Tortuga for this fun Murder Mystery. Remember: If you have RSVP'd and been assigned a role, please be sure to show up! This only works when all roles are filled.
We need a few folks to help with decorating for this fun event - please contact Past Commodore Erika with ideas.
When: Friday February 10, 2023
Time: Arrive Between 5:30 and 6:00PM
What: This is a murder mystery event. All participants will be assigned a role and will be asked to come in costume and character.
What to Bring: Please bring a finger food (hors d'oeuvre) to share. You'll be spending the time mingling and finding out clues from the other participants.
Do you want to know how to fix the scratches, dents or holes in your cherished vessel?
If so, America’s Boating Club and Port Angeles Yacht Club are presenting a clinic on repairing and refinishing damage to your composite materials.
These clinics will be held in two sessions, Saturday, February 4th and Saturday, March 4th 10:00 am at the Port Angeles Yacht Club and promises to be informative and entertaining. Each session has an in-depth presentation that will cover different aspects of fiberglass repair.
Since you get to get your hands dirty mixing up epoxy and making it work, there's a $10 charge to cover the cost of materials for both sessions.
