Captain's Log: Stardate 10223.3
Today, the Enterprise will be officially entered in this year’s EBYRA Wednesday Night Race Series (insert cheer here.) Spring has quietly sprung, and even though my concentration has been diverted elsewhere with work and the new home, there’s an ever-increasing interest in preparing the Enterprise and continuing our voyages.

So it is today when I begin to recall the crew to active duty from their extended shore leaves and give them some crucial mission dates:

Stardate 10235.2 (May 8): The EBYRA Skipper’s Meeting and Crew Party will commence at 7:00pm at Morris Yacht & Beach Club. Unlike previous meetings, crew are invited as well for information, beer and munchies. This will be a great time to make friends with people before you go yell at them on the water.

Stardate 10237.0 (May 15): The captain and crew of the Starship Enterprise perform race committee duty for Race 1 of the EBYRA Wednesday Night Race Series. This will be a great opportunity to learn the new starting sequence and screw it up beyond everyone’s expectations.

Stardate 10238.9 (May 22): The Enterprise begins racing in the Wednesday Night Race Series. Warp Speed!

Stardate 10256.4 (July 25): We once again boldly go around Long Island, fully armed with fruit cup photon torpedoes, butt cake and no sunflower seeds. Some people have been concerned with the amount of shark attacks in the Atlantic Ocean, so I offer this life-saving tip: If you think about it, you don’t have to swim faster than the shark; you just have to swim faster than Brad.

Stardate 10258.9 (August 3): Lt. Laura Heald takes command of the Enterprise for the City Island Yacht Club Women Skipper’s Race. Women drivers n Eastchester Bay. Insurance premiums triple.

Stardate 10270.4 (September 14): The Enterprise competes in the C&C Worlds 2002 against other like-designed starships. We’ll be fresh out of excuses.

Stardate 10276.2 (October 5-6): The Enterprise will compete in the EBYRA Fall Series and I will relinquish the conn to a yet-to-be-named crewperson.

More dates will follow, but for now, it’s time to dust off your uniform and look towards the sea, our own final frontier – for these are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Our ongoing mission; to explore strange new harbors, to seek out new trophies and have fun on the race course. Indeed, to boldly do what no boat has done before . . .
