Spring Launching

Saturday, April 10, 2021 (raindate is Sunday), 1 to 5 pm

Spring Launching is one of the great traditions at our Club.  This event is open to all Members, both racing and cruising.  It is a good opportunity to meet other Members and celebrate the arrival of spring.  Spring Launching is also an important opportunity for racing teams to sand and paint their bottoms to ensure a smooth and fast finish. Work will begin on the fleet at 1 pm and is expected to be finished by 5 p.m. Sausages and beers will be served after the work is completed.

NOTE – the Spring Launching will take place at Liberty Harbor Marina in Jersey City!

The goal of Spring Launching is to clean and polish the topsides (new this year) and then paint the bottoms.

Racing TeamsPlease NOTE – you do not need to sand your bottom.  We use ablative paints which wear off each year. If you feel you need to sand your bottom to make it smoother, special dustless sanders will be available on the evenings of April 7, 8, 9 before the Spring Launching day. Sanding must be done before April 10 and will not be permitted onthe day of the event (to keep the air clean for all Members). 

All Members – Everyone is invited to participate in the the Spring Launching.  There are lots of boats to be polished and bottoms to be painted.  You will meet other Members and this is a great way to meet some of the racing teams.
