Cheers to all for another season of blind sailing. I will not be attending
the meeting as I am in Florida, returning sometime in April. I will be
helping Kris Scheppe introduce some VI persons to blind sailing this Saturday
at the Edison Sailing Center in Ft Myers. One this I would like to suggest
for discussion at the meeting is when and how BUBS can begin collaborating
with Pleasant Bay Sailing Center on Cape Cod and their blind sailing program.
Could we invite them to attend this meeting to begin the process? They have
expressed interest in hosting a blind sailing regatta. My best to all, Bill

Hello everyone, and happy almost spring! We've started hearing peeps from
several corners of the blind sailing community, which must mean it's time to
stop hibernating and start planning for another great season on the water!
You are cordially invited to meet up at The Fours on March 18th, from 12:30
to 3 PM for lunch and to discuss the upcoming season. The Fours is located
at 166 Canal Street, close to North Station. We will be looking for feedback
on what worked well last season, and what we would like to continue for this
Some topics include:
- this season's weekly practice schedule, including dedicated volunteers to
- recruitment of new guides and sailors
- the Robie Pierce Regatta
- blind windsurfing
- hosting the match racing nationals at CBI
- Olin's renewal of funds for this year's project
- and much much more!
Even if you did not participate a lot in BUBS practices and events last
year, if you are interested in sailing or guiding this season, please come
and join us! We welcome your input on how to make blind sailing a better
experience for you. Even if you consider yourself "retired," we would love
to hear your wisdom (and see you)!
This will be a productive time to shape the future of our program. We have a
lot to discuss, so let's stay on topic and focus on the upcoming season. If
there is a specific topic you would like to bring up, please send an email
ahead of time to bostonblindsailing@xxxxxxxxx.
Lunch is on the Association for Blind Citizens! Beers are on you. So come
and join us! Please RSVP to bostonblindsailing@xxxxxxxxx by Wednesday, March
