Polished and tuned, washed and ready. A work party of 15-20 AYCers turned out Saturday (1/5) to get the Arizona Sailing Foundation (ASF) boats ready for the coming season of lessons and Adopt-a-Boat (AaB) action.
The Lasers got the most work, wet-sanding the bottoms and fixing various problems. Adopt-a-Boat coordinator Grant Younger reports, “The boats look GREAT! We have almost all of them ready to go. We’re just waiting for some epoxy to dry and a few parts to come in.”
Lake Captain Emory Heisler had already done a huge job of getting the storage trailer cleaned and inventoried and the safety boats tuned and properly equipped.
Eight Catalina 14.2s were scrubbed and set for the High School team, which begins sailing Tuesday, January 15. Two other 14.2s will be added soon.
Both the 14.2s and the Lasers are available for AaB adoption when the Tempe Town Lake racing and RC training season begins Sunday (1/13).
