Due to Hurricane Harvey and the complications throughout the Houston area we are canceling the High School Parent Meeting and the High School Pizza Party. Please stay tuned for rescheduled dates.
We hope that everyone is safe and on high ground. Prayers going to all areas of Houston and our Seahorse Families.
Time to get your Optis and Lasers home safely! The south side of the property will flood quickly, so please plan to make the move sooner rather than later.
At the print time of this post, the Sailing Center staff is preparing for a Harvey, moving boats and packing up lockers, while planning the regattas and coaching staff for the fall. This makes us a very busy staff. Please give us time to answer your calls, emails, and texts during this time while we prepare for the storm. We hope that it does not bother our part of Texas and that all the preparation is unneeded, with that being said please pick up your boats from the club grounds, move all your equipment and toys to high ground, and please be sure to be safe.
