SAILING AWAY!!! Once again, we are saying bon voyage to a couple of long time Sale Creek residents. James and Kristen Drozdek who we first met after they bought their S2 27 Carol Lynn, later upgrading to their Tayana 37 Tatiana, are heading to bluer waters! We will miss them very much but like many Sale Creekers in the past, they will be keeping up a blog of their adventures. We can follow them at the following link! http://sailingtatiana.blogspot.com/2015/11/all-in.html
 

MARINA WI-FI UP AND RUNNING!!!! - Thanks to Chuck Alexander for his efforts into locating a suitable Wi-Fi system and for his assistance in setting up the network. Now all slip customers at the marina can get Internet access while hanging out on their boats!

 

ANDRE RETURNS TO THE GREAT LAKES! - In 2010, our fearless leader Andre participated in the Port Huron Mackinac race up on Lake Huron on board Chris Cyrul's Olson 30 Opus Dei. They did an excellent job finishing 4th in their division. THIS year, however, the same crew returned and took first place in their class! Winds in general were light and it took over 60 hours for them to complete the 254 nautical mile course. Whew! But they persevered and our congratulations go out to the Opus Dei crew - nice job guys!  

TENNESSEE BOAT REGISTRATION FOR DOCUMENTED VESSELS - According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, vessels with a valid document issued by the United States Coast Guard shall not be required to display a certificate of number but shall display a current vessel validation decal issued by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

The decal shall be located on each side of the vessel on the windows located nearest the main operator station or, if not equipped with windows, the decal shall be placed in the immediate vicinity of the operator so that the decal is clearly visible to enforcement officers. Documented vessels which have chosen to display tne TN numbers on the forepart of the vessel hull may, at the owners discretion, affix the decal in that location in lieu of the windows.

Sailboats, in lieu of that location, may place the decal on the bottom of the main mast, on both the port and starboard sides.

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS 2008 - Thanks to Clarence Myers for the spectacular night photo below showing the festive atmosphere on the docks during the Christmas 2008 holiday season!

 
 

DO YOU HAVE DREAMS OF CRUISING IN YOUR SAILBOAT?  If so, the following is required reading! Not long ago, the Lings (Rodger, Annie, and Laura) embarked on a 1-1/2 year journey that took them from the Tennessee River down to the Caribbean, up the East Coast to Maine, back down to the Bahamas, and then finally back home to Chickamauga Lake. All on their S2 35 center cockpit Seaductress! So if you are planning a cruise on your boat and want to see what it is like, or if you simply want to live your cruising life vicariously through someone else, by all means visit their cruising blog at http://www.stationr.org/water/log/index.html . There are some really fabulous photos and entertaining blog entries! You can also check some video footage of their adventures as well by seeing their award winning video on Cruising World's web page!

 

DID YOU KNOW? Tennessee residents born after January 1, 1989 must show a TWRA-issued boating safety education certificate when operating a boat or personal watercraft. This certificate must be on board with you. For more information on how to obtain this certificate contact the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org or call 1-800-837-6012.

 
SMOOTH SAILING!
