TSPS January Keelhaul

January 11, 2023

By Timothy Langley

DevilCraft in Hamamatsucho was the venue for our first TSPS Keelhaul-of-the-Year. 

More than 25 Members joined this monthly beerfest & deep-dish Chicago pizza, four prospective new Members, and two new Members.  Keelhaul is the most regular social feature of TSPS, followed by our twice-annual BBQs, the on-the-water cruises, and the annual Yokohama Boat Show. 

Otherwise and as you know, TSPS is primarily about learning and gaining experience in sailing & boating in Japanese waters, getting licensed, and for meeting other likeminded people in the world’s largest megatropolis. 

The Keelhaul supplements the work of the webpage by spreading information on cruising availabilities and Class schedules, bringing-in new Members, and allowing everyone to meet with and talk (brag) about sailing with the leadership and Instructors (who are all drunkards in any event). 

Please bookmark the webpage for the Calendar-of-Events and by all means reserve the First Wednesday of Every Month for our regularly scheduled Keelhauls (venue changes frequently).

Here are some of the Participants:

Timothy Langley, Secretary & Legal Officer
