FWSA Meeting, May 17, 2012
Eight Bitter Ends attended the May FWSA meeting at
Davis Island (Dinghy Dames). Penny Washburn, our 2nd Delegate, gave her report on our
activities since January. Highlights of the meeting, were the
Lilly Kaighin Award and Young Woman Sailor Award given to Wendy
Reuss, our and many other clubs nominee this year.
The Young Woman Sailor Award
(YWSA) trophy and money were accepted by Wendy's parents, her mother is
Luffing Lassie Nanette Reuss. Wendy was brought to us via
Skype while at school in RI doing extra sailing practice for the
World Champianships. We didn't win the PRAM Spirit Award,
though Interclub Chair Ann Carroll and others participated in
almost every Interclub. However it was close, Sarasota's
Luffing Lassies won for the first time. The speaker,
Dr. Fabri, spoke on Dinghy Safety. Prevention and planning
ahead for possible injuries were key points. A shopping
stop at Ikea on the way home completed our great day. Thanks
to Mardi Skoegard for driving all eight of us together.
