The South Sound Sailing Society meets at the Olympia Yacht Club on the second Tuesday of the month, September through June. Our meetings are open to the public and usually involve a great speaker or boating presentation. I am a former member of the NW Potter group. I think our clubs have a lot in common that we can share. We also cruise to a South Sound destination once a month and would welcome some trailer sailors to join us.
Here is the intro to the speaker for the February meeting:
Years of cruising with the love of your life in the glorious waters of Mexico. Sounds like a wonderful dream, right? Something most of us could only imagine in the B.C. years (before children), or after retirement.
Max (then age 24) and Stephanie Hegewald (age 19) cruised aboard their 1962 Herreshoff H-28 , S/V Chinook, for 3.5 years, before returning to rural Thurston County with a 10 year plan to sail off again with young children.
The Hegewalds are now planning to cast off the dock lines again and take the Big Left out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca with their two daughters, Michelle (age 10) and Autumn (age 8) Aboard S/V Xpression.
Join us at the SSSS meeting on February 13, to hear more from this lively sailing family.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
Meeting begins at 7:00pm.
