Sunfish "Sailstice" Race

Ten Sunfish skippers rigged for a night of sailing. With winds coming out of the east, the wind shadow from Kentucky made it difficult to start. That made the starting buoy the place start which was very crowed. If a sailor could not get to the buoy, it took a long time to recover. John Pillitteri had an evening that all of us would like to have. He had two seconds and a third making him the sailor of the evening. Thanks to all who brought food, cooked and cleaned up for a beautiful night on the river with friends as the sun lowered on the horizon. Unfortunately, Captain Ron is still in the mail.

Laser Report

Laser Sunday’s continue rocking on, with week three bringing perfect south westerly conditions and seven boats. The forecast called for a south west breeze of around six. Thankfully they missed this, and for once, to the sweet side. 11:00 rolled around with a fresh breeze, kicking in the occasional white cap. This was a welcome change from the prior days fickle east conditions, that punished the Thistle and Sunfish Solstice fleets! Ray and Scott rigged up and were in the water just at 11:00. For a while it looked like it would be a day sailing kind of day. With everyone else milling about on the shore and no race committee in sight, it looked like a lost day. Finally the race committed appeared, with Ray and Scott demonstrating to the shore crowd the conditions were more than manageable. Gradually everyone rigged and at 11:22 the first signal was fired. The fleet sailed five races, with the wind backing off a bit and then hitting the 12 to 15 range for the last two. This week we had David Bauer, Cliff, Pat, Ray, Charlie, David Bader, and Scott.

Ed was out of town taking Ben to sail camp, and Abbie was taking a break after almost three weeks straight of being on the water. Yellow fin is finally getting repaired and is promised to be back by the July 4th weekend. In boat shop repair terms that translates to middle or late August!

Keep your speed on Beachland Beach Road under control. This is a residential neighborhood.

Sail Storage

LSC has increased sail storage space for Sunfish. Please wrap your sails tight so that we can make full use of the available space. Each space can accommo-date three or four sails. That way no sails should be on the floor.
