Last Saturday's windsurfing clinic was attended by 7 people (2 guests and 5 members).  Near perfect NW winds made for a safe clinic and a lot of fun windsurfing.  Everyone did very well with some new techniques attempted, some successfully.  The next clinic will be on Saturday July 19 and July 26 from 12:30 to 5pm, weather dependent(must be enough wind).  This will be confirmed by another email before these times or phone Don at 362 7196. 

We encourage returning members to download a club membership renewal form from the website, fill them out and mail or give them to the club treasurer (John) along with payment.  If you are not re-joining the club please remove your sailing equipment and let us know your plans.
