How About That Painting?
Last year, at the final race, we had performance artist Greg Kalamar, capture the essence of the 2012 Downtown Sailing Series in a painting. He painted the entire piece during the party and if you look hard you may see yourself! This year, to celebrate our tenth year, we have turned his original piece of artwork into a print. Every skipper or boat will get one free and additional copies can be purchased at the fuel dock for $10. The original was auctioned off at the 2013 Leukemia Cup. We hope this one of a kind piece of art brings back fond memories for years to come.
The skippers meeting for the 2013 DSS will be held on May 16th at Maggie’s Bluff from 6-8pm. This is a great opportunity to get your new numbers, preview the 2013 design and swag package while learning about what exciting twists we have planned for our 10 year celebration of the Downtown Sailing Series!!! The 2013 schedule begins on June 8th with the Leukemia Cup and runs every Thursday following, with the exception of July 4th. The last race will be Thursday, August 15th.
