Welcome (November/December 2017)

All too quickly the end of 2017 is upon us, and 2018 is right around the corner. It has been a fun year. We would like to thank all who have contributed photos and articles to The Mainsheet,  and we wish the incoming board a very successful year. We will be celebrating Sailing Singles’ 30th anniversary in 2018.

In this issue, our Commodore reflects on the past year in From The Helm.  In Sailing News we cover the International Raft Up, the Boat Parade, Deckhands at work, and the SOS.

In Social News we report on the Thanksgiving Party and the the Holiday Party. Check out the photographs of our members having fun.

And in Of Interest to Captains, Brian Brown describes the very important task of  keeping your food and drinks cool.

We have a Sunfish for sale in our Classifieds section.
