Thursday Night Sailing

Thanks to all for coming out last thursday night! Weather looked questionable, but it turned out to be a great sail! No snapped masts or shrouds, and neck and neck the whole way! ūüôā See you next Thursday!

Thursday Night Sailing

We had two full crews last night at our weekly Thursday Night Sailing. Gusty winds at 10-15 knots made for some intense tacking on the upwind legs, heeling enough to get the leeward side just kissing 2 foot waves. Great sailing!

Beachside Sailing Students, Terry and Ange Benson, had such a great time on their recent trip to the BVIs they are making plans to return in October.¬† The couple took ASA Sailing Lessons from Beachside Sailing.¬† As members of our sailing club they took advantage of the boat rentals and honed their sailing skills in the Banana River and Atlantic Ocean near Merritt Island, Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach.¬† These are pictures of the Benson’s July trip.¬† We are very envious and look forward to pictures from the October charter!
