2018 - WPSA Annual Mess

The Wet Pants Sailing Association was founded in 1934. This evening, Eighty-four years later we are still enjoying the history and traditions of our family sailing club as we gather to celebrate the 2018 sailing season.

All gathering at the Snapper Inn in Oakdale, NY enjoyed an evening of fun and fellowship. From the two guns fired off at the beginning of the evening to the enthusiastic hip, hip, haroars at the end; it is an event not to be missed.
