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.

General Meeting: Rob Lawnsby – Boston to Bahamas

Title: General Meeting: Rob Lawnsby – Boston to Bahamas
Location: Savin Hill Yacht Club 400 Morrissey Blvd., Fox Point, Dorchester, MA 02125
Start Time: 18:30
Date: 2018-05-17

Boston to The Bahamas – What to Expect on the ICW

Rob Lawnsby
Founder Narragansett Sailing School & Charter narragansettsailing.com

format

Rob Lawnsby started sailing in his mid 20’s when he bought an old boat and moved aboard with his young family. With little knowledge and a good book on how to sail, they took off on a year’s adventure of cruising New England’s waters, and then cruised down the Intracoastal Waterway south. He got involved in building boats in Georgia and then Florida working his way up to Production Manager for Sovereign Yachts responsible for all aspects of the factory’s boat production including lamination, wood shop, assembly, rigging, and quality control. For the next 20 years Rob worked some and cruised some sailing everywhere on the Eastern seaboard and into the Bahamas traveling up and down the Intracoastal waterway a dozen times.

From there he embraced sales and yacht brokering. He started a Rhode Island boat dealership in 2002 representing Hunter and Mainship, eventually acquiring the Southerly sailboat line as well. In 2008 he started Narragansett Sailing School and Charter, and gave up the dealership in 2009 so he could focus on bringing new sailing families into the wonderful experience of enjoying the water under sail.

He is in charge of instructor development and course lesson plans for the school. Manages the sales arm of the charter operation, and is the service manager supervising the maintenance and upkeep of the school and charter fleet. Rob has ABYC certifications in Boat Systems and Marine Standards; which means he knows what he is doing when working on boats. Plus he is an ASA Instructor Evaluator, which means he can certify instructors to teach for ASA.


The purpose of the Pelagic Sailing Club (PSC) is to bring together competent skippers and crew for their mutual sailing benefit. The Club’s mission is to promote safety on the water, seamanship sailing, and good fellowship. This club is a great way to meet other sailors, to improve your sailing skills and, most especially, to sail.
