Windlasses to Welcome New Members
DUNEDIN - The Windlass New Members Coffee will take place on Thursday, August 23, 9:30 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 455 Scotland St., in Dunedin.
The first meeting of the year will offer a sign-up opportunity for new members. The Windlasses, a woman's sailing and racing club, only accept new members in August and September. New members must be able to swim and should know basic sailing techniques. Information on beginners' local sailing classes will be available.
All new members begin in the pram fleet, so boat ownership is not necessary. An orientation program will include pram rigging, racing rules and an understanding of the club. The club meets Thursdays during the school year for racing at the Dunedin Marina, monthly cruises and interclub races with other Florida West Coast women's sailing clubs. Annual membership dues are $45 with an initiation fee of $40.
For more information, call 449-8210.
