Upcoming Events:
Mar 25 – Neuse River Shakedown – Man Overboard Drill
Joe & Carol Glorioso 249-2404
Update 3/23/15
The 2015 Shakedown Cruise, our first on the water event of the season, is just around the corner. This coming Wednesday, March 25th, we will meet at the Oriental “one” mark at 12:00 PM to test our skills with a man overboard exercise. This is a great opportunity to safely practice an important skill, so we look forward to seeing many of you out there! Afterward, all participants are welcome to meet at 4:30 PM for a Pot Luck at Pecan Grove Marina.
Please email (joe.gloriosop33@gmail.com) or call me at (252-249-2404) to let me know if you will be participating.
Two exercises are scheduled, weather permitting. Commodore Jerry Buckman will be out in a motor boat to facilitate the exercises using VHF channel 72. Each boat will have a minimum of four timed runs on the man overboard exercise. Two runs will be under sail and two runs will be motoring. The Commodore will drop a “dummy” in the water and call a boat name. The boat who’s name is called will sail close past the dummy, and as soon as your transom passes the dummy the timer will start and you may begin your attempt. The objective is to complete the turn and pick up the dummy using a boat hook. As soon as the dummy reaches your lifeline height, the clock will stop, and you can drop the dummy back in the water. The Commodore will then call the next boat to pick up the dummy.
1) Sailing, captain at the helm.
2) Sailing, first mate at he helm.
3) Motoring, captain at the helm.
4) Motoring, first mate at the helm.
5) Other runs as facilitated by the Commodore are possible.
After we complete the man overboard exercise, we will sail to TWO GPS coordinates and be given a compass bearing, which will be announced by the Commodore on the water via VHF channel 72. Simply sail to the GPS coordinate and take the compass bearing. Write down what you see and bring it to Pecan Grove, along with a covered dish to share.
If you have any questions, please give me a call.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you on the water!
Jerry and Joe
Update 3/15/15
With the successful Oyster Roast already behind us, we are looking forward to our first on-the-water event of 2015! The Neuse River Shakedown Cruise is scheduled for Wednesday, March 25th. Weather permitting, we will be gathering at the Oriental One mark at noon. This first on-the-water event is a good way to make sure our boats are prepared and ready for the new sailing season. Details of the Shakedown Cruise and man overboard drill, which will be orchestrated by our Commodore and Vice Commodore, are being finalized and will be provided in an email next week.
Of course we can’t have a SCOO event without a pot luck dinner for the participants, to follow afterwards at Pecan Grove Marina.
