Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast, Episode 0008

pegasus_sunset2_logoWelcome to the Eighth Episode of the Shooting the Breeze Sailing Podcast.

In this episode we visit the club for opening weekend festivities, including the Blessing of the Fleet, a flag raising, and the Burning of the Socks, HPYC style.

The festivities end up devolving into a free for all Hootenanny with all sorts of instruments and all sorts of people playing them.

Admittedly, this episode is a bit scarce on the actual sailing kind of thing, but it’s a good example of our “Yacht Club” activities before the sailing season actually gets rolling full steam.

Big thanks to all involved, some of which I’m not even familiar with on a personal level. Please feel free to contact me at if you want to add your name to the list or add links for those involved.
