Northwest Multihull Association Dec 3, 2019 Holiday Party


No meeting minutes but I’ll write a short note about our Holiday party Dec 3.  Diane, Mark, Eric and Marilyn met at the club at 5 pm to set up tables, chairs, table cloths, Christmas lights and decorations and table settings.  It was kind of fun working together sprucing up the place and visiting.  Many hands make light work and all.  People started to arrive just after 6.   We had a little over 25 of us, (I remembered to count around 8:30 after a few had left).   It was nice to see the Kitsap ferry travelers contingent, Joe, Sue, David, Julia, maybe someone else I missed.   They traveled the longest but Martyn and Linda probably drove the furthest, from La Conner.  For a good half hour or so we all stood around catching up as the potluck table grew more and more food.  It’s amazing how a non choreographed

potluck turns out so well.  Plenty of main dishes, side dishes, salads, munchies and desserts, wine, beer and soft drinks were available.  However, I was wondering if anyone was ever going to sit down at the nicely decked out tables we’d worked so hard on.  Finally a few did and soon all ~25 of us were sitting at the one long table like an old time feast, having a good time talking boats, family and adventures.  It was a nice way to usher in the Christmas season, a nice holiday vibe, especially with the dimmed lights and 1980’s disco ball rotating.  There was plenty of time to catch up on everyone’s activities of the past year.  Outgoing Commodore Jeff said a few words followed by new Commodore Scott.  We gave them a round of applause for their contribution to keeping our club going strong!  Their effort is greatly appreciated!  We wrapped up around 9:30 with everyone helping to take down the decorations and clean up.  Happy Holidays to you all!  We hope to see you at next year’s first meeting, January 7.


PS attached below is a list of sails available cheap, like what ever you want to pay, with proceeds to the club.  Most are from the late Larry Christiansen’s 39’ trimaran Invictus with ~65’ mast.  Rick Sutherland (ricksutherland at earthlink dot com)has them at his house except the .75 oz spinnaker which is at my house ejlindahl at comcast dot net.  Let us know if you want them.  If the image didn't load I'll list the luff lengths and sail type below:

1.5 oz runner luff 24'  good, .5 oz triradial 61'  fair, .75 oz reaching 68' excellent, 140% reacher/genoa? 57’ new, main sail 38' fair, hobie 16? tramps.  Eric took the following home but its available; 3/4? oz spin 33'  excellent,
