By popular demand, we have scheduled a Rigging Seminar for our Winter Meeting. It will take place at Ms. Sil's Kitchen in Oriental, NC on February 12, 2005.

Ms. Sil's Kitchen
900 Broad St.
PO Box 37
Oriental, NC 28571

I know this is short notice but please try to attend if you are in the area. Two expert riggers from Oriental have been tapped to make presentations and answer questions. Alan Arnfast, of Sailcraft Service, Inc. is imminently qualifed to discuss the nuances of fixed, standing rigging. As owner of one of the premier boatyards in Oriental, he is ready to relate the issues that boatowners and repair yards face daily in their respective pursuits to maintain sailing vessels. Capt. Ross Pease, currently the Harbor Master at Oriental Harbor and Marina, has many years experience working in local chandleries, and re-rigging local boats with their running rigging and associated lines. We will begin about 9:00 AM with a lunch break, and continue until about 3:00 PM. Seating is limited to 50 people so if you plan on attending, please RSVP to Carolinas Fleet Secretary, Shanna Paxton, at for an accurate head count.

Additionally, our Spring Planning Meeting will find us returning to Captain Ratty's Restaurant for lunch in New Bern, NC on March 26, 2005. Some new cruise destinations are in the works and any awards earned this past year will be publicly announced! It's also a great time to join the Fleet, or say hello to members you haven't seen in a while.

Best wishes for a great '2005 sailing season!
