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.
Many of you were included on the new Sign-up Genius page I put together. Note: this is for the physical boat used for the committee boat and not for staffing. So far we have boats up to Spring Series Week 6 (June 9th) – if we don’t have a boat to use for a given Tuesday night, we won’t be sailing. Each slot is for two weeks, with the first date listed – wouldn’t let me have two dates in the column for as far as I know at this time. Even if you don’t have a boat, take a look at the page, it’s a neat system that could be used for whatever planning that needs to be done.
This Tuesday (5/12) looks a little warmer, with highs in the mid 50s and winds 15 – 25 mph. Should be interesting! We meet at Burger Town Grille afterwards.
Eight hardy (die-hard) sailors braved the 50 degree weather and chance of rain to kick off Week 1 of the 2015 Spring racing series on Austin Lake.
Tuesday, May 5, 2015, we start our Spring series, white flag at 6:30 pm. Forecast is for east wind,10-15 mph with rain showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Looking at the hourly forecast, the chances of rain decrease after 6, so there’s a decent chance that we would be able to sail. Jerry Mohney is our race chair this year, and he will keep us posted on a go or no go decision. We meet at Burger Towne on Shaver Road afterwards, or around 7 in the event we don’t sail. Remember to join the fleet if you haven’t already, and coming to Burger Towne is also a great chance to sign up for the ALCA regatta on May 30-31, 2015!
