The weather forecast proved correct in at least one respect - no snow was predicted and indeed we had no snow at all. We also had a warm 6 knot South wind that sprung up barely 10 minutes before the scheduled start and carried us through the night and morning. Partly clear skies and flat water finished off a very pleasant if somewhat subdued race.
This Sunday (August 12th) is our final latitude race followed by a BBQ and dish to pass.
The following Saturday (August 18th) is the Red Jacket race, open to anyone who wants to sail up to the friendliest club on the lake!
As always, all the best details are in the pennant.
Notus, the South Wind
June 6th, 2018
A strong south wind in front of some rain provided spirited racing, thrills, spills and chills.
Details in the Pennant
April 30th, 2018
Although it didn't get here in time for the tune up race (see the pennant), spring has finally brought some beautiful weather. Get out your shorts and floral shirts for what is sure to be a beautiful sunny race day for the first races of the spring series next weekend!

White Sail Regatta & BBQ
October 10th, 2017
This Sunday, October 15th will be our last event of the season &em-dash; the Frostbite Regatta!
None of us know exactly what our fleet captain has planned except that we will meet at 12:30PM and race, and afterwards we will enjoy a BBQ and dish to pass in the company of our good friends and competitors! Will we sail another word like "dog"? Will it be a more esoteric word? Perhaps one with unusual diacritical marks? Perhaps something entirely different? Come enjoy a fun (and unseasonably warm, if the forecast is to be believed) day on the water to close out the sailing season!
Sailing instructions are in the documents section as usual.
