Women who want to sail, this is for you! Windlasses is gearing up for their 2006-2007 year. Women sailors within driving distance of the Dunedin Marina are invited to attend the membership coffee, to be held Thursday, August 24, 9:30 a.m., at the First Presbyterian Church, 45 Scotland Street in Dunedin.
The club meets every Thursday during the school year for racing, monthly cruises, interclub races with the other women's sailing clubs on the west coast of Florida, and general fun. Begun in 1967, the club currently has over 100 members.
New members are accepted only in August and September. Women sailors must be able to swim, and know basic sailing techniques (information on local sailing classes will be available). Instruction on pram rigging, racing rules, and other sailing know-how will be provided in a special "New Salts Orientation," plus weekly educational sessions during the fall. All new members begin in the pram fleet, so boat ownership is not necessary.
The Coffee will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 455 Scotland Street in Dunedin. The church is located two blocks south of Main Street, and one block east of Douglas. The Coffee starts at 9:30 a.m. and the General Meeting will begin at 10 a.m. Refreshments will be served, and the meeting is free.
If you decide to join, dues are $45 a year for membership, with a one-time initiation fee of $40.
For more information, call 669-1577, 797-0697, 789-3555, or 725-1015.
