Lisa recently returned from covering the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Lisa has raced to Bermuda numerous times on her family 50’ Hinckley where they use Celestial navigation in lieu of electronics.

Annual Photo Contest, Calendar Project

Ahoy Mates!

Time for the Pelagic Sailing Club “Annual Photo Contest”. Hope you had a wonderful summer sailing and that you took lots of photos. Now you can enter them in our ‘Annual Photo Contest’ at the Sep 22, 2016 General Meeting. No special theme this year, but must be related to sailing. There will be a first, second and third prize winner. I will also select nine honorable mention photos for a total of twelve to be used for the 2017 Pelagic Calendar.

I will need:

Photos related to sailing
Photo credit for each photo (Person that actually took the photo)
Name of subject and location.

You can show your photos on a laptop, electronic picture frame or bring a color photo (at least 8 x 10). Do not send photos to me. Don’t be shy, you may have the first prize winner!

We had a good showing last year, so lets keep up the trend.

Calendars make great Christmas gifts!

Sorry for the short notice.

Lexington Symphony 2016 May

Join the fun!

I’ve had 12 tickets ($40 each) put aside for “Pelagic Sailing Club” for the May 14th concert at 8PM.

MUSIC FROM THE MOVIES

May 14, 2016 | Saturday, 8 p.m.

Without the spine-tingling, pulsing bass notes of John Williams’s Jaws theme, those Steven Spielberg beach scenes would have seemed just like any other day at the beach! Featuring some of the greatest music ever written for the big screen, our Music from the Movies concert explores the important role music plays in setting the scene and telling a story via the medium of film.

Simply call (781-523-9009) before March 1 to purchase your tickets. You may need to leave your name and phone number, but Sam will call you back. Be sure to say “Pelagic Sailing Club” when ordering tickets. Then let me know if you would like to join me at a nearby restaurant before the symphony.

Public Meeting 2018 Nov 15: Jais Brohinsky, Evolution of Navigation

Title: Public Meeting: Jais Brohinsky, Evolution of Navigation
Location: Savin Hill Yacht Club 400 Morrissey Blvd., Fox Point, Dorchester, MA 02125

Description:

Our speaker at the final Pelagic open meeting this year will be Jais Brohinsky, a lecturer at Harvard. Jais teaches a freshman seminar that looks at the development of human societies from cave dwellers to passengers in self-driving cars.

Part of the curriculum in that wide-ranging seminar deals with navigation, including basics such as position, direction, time, speed. The presentation will pay particular attention to the evolution of navigation and navigational tools and tables, particularly in the 17th and 18th centuries, including the problem of determining a ship’s longitude at sea.

Part of the presentation will be interactive, and the audience will be encouraged to follow along as Jais demonstrates “how to do it” on a white board. You may want to bring along a few sheets of paper or a notebook. Jais will be entertaining questions as the interactive portion of the programs progresses.

As usual, the program will start after the club’s business meeting, and will last about an hour and a quarter. We look forward to a very interesting program.

And, as usual, the pizzas will arrive around 6:30. We hope to see you Thursday night. Bring spouses, friends, potential members of Pelagic.

Start Time: 18:30n
Date: 2018-11-15

Monthly Meetings are free and open to the public.
