SLTWYC - South Lake Tahoe Windjammers Yacht Club

Hi All,

Spring is here & the 2019 events for SLTWYC are in full swing.

We have had the Chowder Feed, St. Patrick's Day, Opening Day on the Bay with a Cocktail Party at the Fairmont Condominiums at Ghirardelli Square, & Cinco de Mayo. All of which have been successful & very well attended.

Opening Day on the Bay sponsored by PICYA was up again Sunday April 28 with the theme "Holidays on the Bay".

And many thanks to Jim & Carol Crecelius who again offered to host a Cocktail Party at their lovely condominium at Ghirardelli Square.

Valkyrie breaking ice in Tahoe Keys

Ahoy Windjammers, 

Debbie and I have been able to sail the lyon's share of this winter. Except for February, when winter asserted itself in earnest and the canals froze thick enough to drive a car on. 

On March 14, I decided to take a shot at breaking the ice from Ernie's dock with the ice breaker "Valkyrie". I thought, if I can get out, then we should set the marks! Yeah... I know.... it's a bit early for some, but if there's one other sailboat on the lake... that's a race! Three hours of ice breaking paid off... (6 tons has it's advantages).

Hi All,

Since we have not been able to be together I wanted to fill you all in about some changes & additions for the SLTWYC Calendar for 2019.

I am sorry we had to cancel the Valentine's event but since the weather did not cooperate it was the only way to go.  I am especially sorry to any of you who did not receive the email of cancelation.  I never know what happens to some of the emails out there is cyberspace!!
