Who´s Running This Outfit?

All of (well, most of...) the past Club Officers are now documented for ever for the world to see.
(You knew the job was dangerous when you took it!)
And what´s even better is that we have PICTURES of all the past Commodores!
Check it out. It´s quite fun.

Who ARE those guys?

There is an exciting feature on our website. The Member Directory now has the capability of showing PICTURES of us and our boats!
Send me a picture of yourself and/or your boat and it will be just a click away for the rest of the club to enjoy and get to know you better.

From the Webmaster

I (Mike Jewell) am the current Webmaster. One of the things I'm doing with the Homepage is updating the picture at left every week (usually on Mondays). I have lots of great shots to put in here but I'd love to put in some pics from all of you. So, "Hit me with your best shot!"

Face2Face

The SSA has a Facebook presence (Page).

Change is good... (New)

Chris Chambers, Mike Jewell, Jack Howard and others have been working on a major revamp of our club website.
Chris has done a huge amount of pioneering work on this and has a working prototype which, over the next months, we hope to gradually transition to.
It will use a new "domain name" of SANDPOINTSAILING.ORG (Note the new "Top Level Domain": .org )
For now, the new site will be the place to go for info on the July Thistle Regatta, the U20 Nationals (at Spud Cup), the Spud Cup Regatta and our Summer Activities Calendar.
It will also very soon house our Club Membership Directory.
Please check it out (click the above link) and don't hesitate to pass on any suggestions, etc to Chris or Mike.

Race Book (New)

Chris Ankney has produced a GREAT summary of all things RACING for 2019 and beyond.
Click here to get the big picture of Sailboat Racing at the north end of our lake.
Thanks, Chris!

Pull the Plug!

Thanks to Barb Perusse for this great link to Why Kids (and everyone else) Should Sail

This is Exciting!!!

Mark your calendars for July 21-26, 2019 for the 74th Thistle National Regatta!
The organizers (Wayne Pignolet and Chris Chambers) are expecting 50-70 boats to show up and race!
Lots of work to do and details to figure out but this will be one exciting event here in Sandpoint!
Contact Wayne or Chris if you would like to help. (They can use lots.)

From The Commodore

Please read (with pride) a couple of recent magazine/newspaper articles about our Club including one from our Commodore, Bruce Robertson, regarding our club's great summer of 2018.
These articles, along with several others and lots of fun historical info about our club can be found in our Scrap-Book (Archives).
Check it out!

Drink your milk!

Our August "Festival Cup" was a great success with Chris Chambers (Black Sheep) winning the first week's race and Ray Henriksen (Red Hot Rookie) winning the second week's race.
But the most coveted and closely watched race was, of course, the famous Milk Carton Race in which Khale Coats, Olivia and Cora took first, second and third places respectively in a hotly contested field of about a dozen one-design race boats designed and built right here in Sandpoint by Chris Chambers Naval Architects.
Thanks to all who participated!
