Big Fun In Small Boat Sailing!

Current Conditions

June 15, 2012
LSC continues to see the best turn out in a number of years for racing. Seven Thistles were on the line last Saturday.

The Lasers and Highlanders turned out in mass Sunday expecting to sail in the predicted ten to twenty mile an hour winds. For some reason the winds did not materialize. Someone forgot to turn on the wind switch. Tuesday night more than a half dozen Sunfish raced, while a number of other boats were out for a day sail. If you are waiting for the perfect day, it may never get here. One never knows what the sailing conditions are until one arrives at the club. If your boat has not been in the water yet, now is the time to get it wet.
