Ahoy TSPS Members (and Wannabe Members, see below)!
Our friends at Hayama Marina are once again inviting TSPS members and their guests to join them for a day on the water. As last year, we’ll gather at Hayama Marina, board four or five boats, spend a pleasant morning and afternoon sailing, sit at anchor for lunch and a swim, and following our return to the marina join the Hayama Marina’s annual Hachigatsu da yo Zenin Shugo, or roughly, “Hey, It’s August, Dude. Let’s Party!” event. Last year we had live music, hula, belly, Tahitian dancers and more. We have been told that this year it will be even better. The event wraps up at 8:30 pm.
