OPENING DAY AT WEED BEACH SAILING AREA


Calling all dads! Wooden and metal ramps need to be put down at the lowest tide levels so the sailors have a rock-free area from which to launch their boats.  Boats need to be transported down to the launch area and prepared for the season; equipment and supplies loaded into the pods, and the tents need to be constructed. Sailors are encouraged to participate in the set-up.  This is a time-sensitive day as we have to take full advantage of the low tide schedule.  Please wear clothing that can get wet,and bring gloves. We'll provide the coffee & donuts!
