Fleet member Steve Weatherford is organizing another sailing promotion event with the local MedMates (which is an organization for ALL resident physicians and medical students, their spouses/significant others and their families) organization. We did this with the group 2 years ago, and with the beautiful weather and moderate winds, both sailors and MedMates had a great time. The event is scheduled for Sunday, June 28th. Steve is asking for 3-4 skippers to volunteer themselves and their boat to take MedMate members for short sailing runs. Expected time is from 11 AM to 2 PM. Contact Steve Weatherford.
We’re at week 5 and just coming off a great regatta at our home lake, we got several races in despite the rainy weather on Saturday with no wind and despite the chilly early spring temps on Sunday and strong winds. Nice job Cesar, Jesse, Win, Dave, and everyone else!
Tuesday looks like a very pleasant sunny day, with light east wind, 5-10 mph. We have a considerable amount of food left over (Lori, Margaret and Julie were the food guru’s) and would like to share it with everyone. We are meeting at Jeff Daane’s after or instead of racing. His address is 9918 East Shore Dr., Portage, 49002 (for those who want to enter it into your nav. apps). THE KEG IS DEAD……SO BYOB! Jeff said he doesn’t remember ever seeing a keg so empty!
Once again, we cancelled racing for the night due to inclement weather conditions. We WILL be going to Burger Town Grille this week however, around 7 PM. For the following weeks, we are planning to go to Brewster’s. Stay tuned!
Races for Tuesday, May 19, 2015 have been cancelled due to cold temperature and moderately high wind conditions. Sailors will still be meeting at Burger Town Grille at 7 PM. Still to be resolved… a committee boat to use for weekly races.
For the regatta dinner, if you are attending, we are asking fleet members to bring a dessert. Other dishes are provided for by the fleet.
Tuesday is here, and unfortunately, so is the cold front. At 6pm, the weather forecast is for 53 degrees and NW winds 10-20 mph with higher gusts. OK. As usual for this month, we are gathering at Burger Towne after sailing and earlier, around 7 if we don’t race.
Just a reminder to everyone: we could not put together a welcome dinner at Latitude 42 for Friday evening (5/29/15). Instead, we are gathering at the Larsens’ place. It’s BYOB at this time, and we will distribute a list of restaurants that will deliver pizza and other casual types of food. Come on over and meet your fellow sailors!
Races for Tuesday, May 12, 2015 have been cancelled due to weather conditions. Sailors will still be meeting at Burger Town Grille at 7 PM. Still to be resolved… a committee boat to use for weekly races.
The 2015 Austin Lake Regatta will be held on May 30-31, 2015 on Austin Lake in Portage, Michigan. Additional information is posted on the Austin Lake Catamaran Association’s Facebook page at Austin Lake Catamaran Association.
