SAMI Ladies Day Race 2009. Submitted

Ladies will be at the helm of the boats racing under sail this Saturday, Sept. 11, off the beaches of Marco Island and Keewaydin Island. For the past few years the Sailing Association of Marco Island (SAMI) has been featuring “Ladies Day” races where the boats carry their usual crews but a lady has to be handling the helm. These events are very popular and everyone has a great time.

Beginning at 1 p.m., a “pursuit” type start will be used in which boats start at different times, according to their handicap, resulting in most boats finishing near the same time.

There will be a skippers’ meeting Friday evening at 6 p.m. at Vandy’s Five Brothers Restaurant (Next to the Post Office) and an awards get-together at 7 p.m. on Saturday back at Vandy’s Five Brothers.

For more information about the race call Fleet Captain Rick Kirby at 450-1870. For Information on joining in on SAMI activities, call BJ Henning at 389-4495.
