Two of Our Favorite Things
 

 
 
     
     
 
August this year brings the summer Olympics, so it just seemed like fun to combine the five-ring symbol of The Games with portholes, iconic images of one of our favorite pastimes.  Of course, we all know that just like headlights, within our lifetimes portholes have changed from round to all kinds of shapes -- but give me some artistic license here:  the Olympic symbol isn't composed of rhomboids.

Anyway, the good news is that even if the weather is too hot for boating some days this August, Seafarers still in PGI can look fondly across their lanais at their boats, while sitting in air-conditioned splendor watching The Games on their wide-screen TV's.  (Of course, then there are those who can sit on their boats, in air-conditioned splendor, watching The Games on their wide-screen TV's).  Either way, it just doesn't get much better, does it?

Commodore's Report: by Mike Clark

Well, here we are in one of the hottest months of the year here in PGI.  Don’t see many folks out and about without a destination with AC!  Nothing scheduled on the calendar this month except our regular, twice a month Happy Hour on the 11th and 25th.  NO Board Meeting, NO General Meeting and NO dinner.L

Knowing the Seafarers however, I am sure something will get planned for a marina cruise, a lunch out or just a get together.  Keep your eyes peeled on the activity calendar for the possibility of any of these events.

As your commodore has had to spend some time in Colorado, where it is hot also, but a whole lot less humidity, I sincerely thank Vice-Commodore Ensley for leading the Board Meeting and the General Meeting in July.  My understanding is they were accomplished in record time!

Vice-Commodore Ensley also looks to have been busy getting things started for our Annual Regatta coming up November 4th thru the 6th at Burnt Store Marina.  The theme this year – “Mardi Gras”! Should be exciting to see the full range of costumes that will surely pop up.

We will be rockin n rolling again in September, but until then…

Continue the fun and we will see you on the water AND on the land!

Mike

 Cruising News: by Joe Preece, Director

You snowbirds may have the right idea. “Flee the heat!”  July saw a handful of intrepid boats and their crews venture to Palm Island Marina for a mid-summer cruise. Between the air conditioners and the pool, all survived.  To see some more photos, click here.

As usual, there are no cruises scheduled for August.  Stay tuned for our customary Fall of lunch and overnight cruises.

Social Events: by Bev Riggs,  Director

Thanks to Harry "The Cork" Ensley for leading the Seafarers' darts/pub repast at the Icehouse on Tuesday, July 12. Fifteen people attended and enjoyed a good dinner followed by a very tough darts competition. The winners of the tournament (Gary Cameron, Cindy Miller, Dorrit Tompkins and Richard Toneatti) were awarded bottles of wine or Icehouse Gift cards.

We don't have a social (except St Andrews) in August. However, we are planning another trip to the Orange House Wine Bar and the Murder Mystery Train in the fall. Details to follow.

Cheers!

Bev
