Bike to Work Day

Bike to Work Day at APS

This past Friday was Bike to Work Day and some of the APS crew were up bright and early riding their bikes to our shop in Annapolis. Mike, Jarrett, Rob, Rob, Katie, Aaron and James all rode downtown to the Bike to Work rally held at the city dock in downtown Annapolis. Bryn and Torrey also rode to work but didn’t make it down to the rally. That’s nine APS’ers in all for those of you keeping track doing their […]

Hail from the Rail

Hail from the Rail

This past weekend Katie and I had a tremendous amount of fun sailing a Thistle in the Spring Series Regatta at SSA. It was a gorgeous weekend for sailing on the Chesapeake and we couldn’t ask for much more with 10 – 15kts of breeze, sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s. We were both on the bow of two different boats and have the bruises to prove it! Take a look at more marvelous photos from last Saturday’s SSA […]

2010 APS Catalogs Have Arrived!

The store stock of the new 2010 APS catalogs arrived this afternoon! That also means they”ve been delivered to the post office and are on their way to your mailbox. If you are coming to town for the Sailing World Circus (aka NOOD) stop in the world leader in One Design, APS, and get an advanced copy. James makes a good paperweight on top of the new catalogs.

Snowmagedon customer of the day!

Congratulations to long time APS customer, and former APS team member, Ali Meller. With a little under 2 hours left for the storefront being open we”re going to go ahead and call this one now. The running was thick but you stuck it out and were…the only customer to come in all day. For that Ali, you”ve won the APS customer of the day award. As a prize we”ve post this picture of you “cross-training” in some sweet grape smugglers. […]

Snowmagedon s’no match for APS!

Snowmagedon s’no match for APS!

24″ inches of snow this past weekend plus another 10-20″ today? Yep, those are the current conditions here at APS, and while the Federal and local governing officials felt it wise to shut down…we”re OPEN! Functioning with a skeleton crew of those that were able to walk to the shop today the phones are on. Between taking turns sledding down the street in the Opti with the “SOLD” sticker on it Steve, Warren, Kyle, James, Lynn, Mike, Katie, and Aaron […]

Katie Weather Channel

A Star is Born…

It was Sunday, January 10th, and I”d just finished watching my beloved New England Patriots get publicly eviscerated by the Baltimore Ravens when my phone went off with a new text message. It was from Katie Cross, our other web development geek here at APS — she was in New Jersey getting an education in ice boating and wanted to know if it would be okay to take Monday off because the ice was fantastic. Being the benevolent dictator that […]
