CYCT Women’s Sailing Spring Agenda

CYCT Women’s Sailing

Gybe Ho’s have set an ambitious agenda for the spring

CYCT Women’s Sailing had their first meeting on the Clubhouse porch on May 1 during the recent heatwave. As ever, a tantalizing variety of “one-handed food” was served while members caught up and swapped stories in the sultry evening heat.

On the heels of the Inaugural and wildly successful Ladies’ Night Out Cruise in March, our group of amazing women have created an ambitious program for the next six weeks of 2014. The group has broadened their horizons and taken on the challenges of navigation, communication, docking, rescue as well as the conventional focus of sailhandling.

Continuing on Thursdays; dates as follows:

May 8, 5:00: Happy Hour (At Smoke &  Cedar, 19th & Cedar St, Tacoma)

6:15: Navigation & Chart reading. Dana is planning to bring Charts for circumnav of Vancouver Island. Members are bringing other cruise resources and guidebooks to explore.

May 15, 6:15: Communication (Communicating visually & auditorially while onboard). Pre-session onboard to discuss hand signals and basic command conventions. We will then go out for a short voyage and practice communication and signals.

May 22, 6:15: Docking (1/2 session aboard Arabesque; ½ session aboard Respite). Pre-session onboard to discuss line handling and individual boat’s pivot points, fender locations, prop walk, acceleration and deceleration. Then repeated (6-10) voyages out and return to dock.

May 29, 6:15: Sail handling. (Vessel to be determined) Pre-session onboard to rig and discuss basic sail & boat handling under sail. Helmsmanship, main trim, light air trim (good chance we’ll see this in the bay this night J), fine tuning and helmsmanship.

June 6, 6:15: Sail handling. (Vessel to be determined) Pre-session onboard to rig and discuss basic sail & boat handling under sail. Helmsmanship, main trim, light air trim (good chance we’ll see this in the bay this night J), fine tuning and helmsmanship.

June 12, 6:15: MOB Drill. (Vessel to be determined) Pre-session onboard to discuss principles of heave-to, spotter, etc. Voyage out with one member in Gumby suit as victim; rest of crew conducts rescue drill.
