Sunfish Sailstice

6:00pm, Saturday June 20th, 2015

The Louisville Sailing Club of Louisville, KY will host their 1st Annual Sunfish Summer Sailstice.  We invite area Sunfish sailors to join our quickly growing Sunfish fleet for an evening of Sunfish racing / sailing on the Ohio River on Saturday, June 20th.  First warning signal 1800.  We will sail as long as there is light and wind and then retire to shore for a club sponsored picnic of burgers, hotdogs and various beverages.  More plans for the event to follow.  For more information please email Keith Kenitzer or phone or text 5027415288.

Out of Town Success!

LSC was well represented at the Mad Plaid Highlander regatta this weekend.  A team of Ed Spengeman and John Bauer finished first out of 18 boats.  To make it more impressive they did not carry a spinnaker.  Neal Deaves and David Bauer finished  second after 5 races in shifty winds of 7to 10 mph.

Docking Assignments

This years docking assignments are posted on the window at the clubhouse.  Please make sure your boat is in the proper place and use the tied downs to ensure the safety of your boat and the boats around you. 

According to LSC's policy, a docking space is assigned to a member and that space will remain theirs through successive years.  Once a space becomes available, the dock chair will assign the open space to the member with the most club seniority on the waiting list.

For those with small craft, a request for a spot on the lower level will not guarantee a spot on the sea wall.  When there are to many request for lower parking for these boats, they will be assigned to a spot along the hill side of the lower level.

Five spots along the sea wall have been left vacant for launching boats that are stored top side and those assigned to a spot along the hill side of the lower level.  It is also possible to launch from the ramp near the down river hoist.  The dock chair is also working on creating an additional launch next to the committee boat.

If you have any questions about docking, contact the Dock Chair, David Bauer.

Fill It Up

A new refrigerator has been purchased for the upstairs.  The upstairs refrigerator is replacing the one which died during this winters flood on the lower level.  It needs your help to be filled with soft drinks, beer, and water.  Please put in what you use!

Please Identify all your property that is at the club.  The stickers go at the foot of the mass or near the goose neck.  One should go on the trailer next to the hitch.  Identify the boat by placing a sticker at the starboard bow under the water deflector.
