The next club meeting will be held at Puget Sound Yacht Club on 8-Jan-2013, pot luck supper starting at 6:30 PM, meeting starting about 7:00.

Tonight will be Proa Night!   Why proas, you ask? What's a proa?  With the new water speed record established by the Vestas Sail Rocket, the new proa kits from Chesapeake Light Craft and a resurgence of interest in Russell Brown's seminal Jzerro design, proas have become a bit more visible now.  We will present video of various proas doing their thing.   Our speaker will be the eminent naval architect, Paul Bieker, who has long been  interested in Proas and who is currently noodling on a proa design with Russ Brown.
