WSA Members, here are two great opportunities to get out on the water and get ready for racing season:

wow_wah_d11061. Martin 242 Open House in King Harbor – Sunday, March 23, 2014 – KHYC, Redondo Beach

Join KHYC for a casual afternoon of M242 sailing in King Harbor. Besides the sailing you can enjoy free refreshments and food on the outside patio. If you are an experienced sailor you can get “qualified” to charter the local boats. We will start sailing at 1:00 PM and wrap up by 4:00 PM then the BBQ. Reservations are appreciated. We would hate to run out of food. Register at:

2. “On-The-Water” Race Starting Clinic – Saturday, April 5, 2014 – Santa Monica Windjammers Y.C.

Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club will host a starting clinic free of charge for both novice and experienced MDR sailors to improve starting skills. There is no charge and sailors new to racing are encouraged. Coffee & pastries will be offered in the morning. All are welcome and encouraged regardless of club affiliation. Please register for this free event, so we know how many boats to expect:
