Sailing Club Members Counting Down Days Until Spring

Ready for spring

Like many sailing club members, Hunter Sailing Association Station-1 (HSA-1) members have been swapping stories about winter maintenance and boat repairs, counting down the days until spring.

In between the waxing, gel coat repairs, and teak restoration, HSA-1 members have the opportunity to enjoy two land-based events with fellow club members during March.

Our winter brunch will took place on March 1 at Neptune’s Seafood Pub in North Beach, Maryland. After the three-course meal, HSA-1 members enjoyed a private tour of the Bayside History Museum. The museum features exhibits on the archeology and paleontology of North Beach and Chesapeake Beach, the Chesapeake Beach (amusement) Park, Camp Roosevelt, the War of 1812, and much more. We are excited that the museum is offering HSA-1 members a private tour of the museum.

Sock burning

A few weeks later, the club looks forward to our sock burning and the launch of another active season of sailing, scheduled for March 21 at Herrington Harbour North.  We will have a potluck luncheon after the sock burning. We are grateful to Herrington Harbour North for hosting our event for the second year in a row. 

New members welcome

We look forward to seeing current and new members at these two events, as well as for many of our spring and summer cruises. Please check our schedule of events on our website. If you have a Hunter in the mid-Chesapeake Bay and are not a member, please check out our club here or email our commodore or vice commodore to learn more about the benefits of membership, which includes access to all club cruises and events and a direct connection to a network of Bay Hunter owners.
