Windquest is first to finish in racing fleet!

  #
Congratulations to Windquest, a Max Z86 owned by Dick and Doug DeVos, on being first to finish in the racing fleet in the 105th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Veuve Clicquot.
 
Windquest finished late Sunday evening at 21:56 CDT. Doug DeVos said it seemed like there were two different races in one, with the first leg benefitting from a good breeze, and the second facing challenging wind conditions. 
 
"The first part of the race was lots of fun, good breeze, we made good time and moved along. Then the last bit from just north of the Manitous on up was very challenging, a lot of light air and really tough," he said.   more...

Mills Race a salute to Lake Erie history

  #

Mills Trophy Race chairman Ron Soka points out the location of  the Bicentennial Buoy marking the site of Commodore Perry's victory over the British in the Battle of Lake Erie. The buoy will mark part of the course. In keeping with the tradition established during the past century, a colorful flotilla of vessels and their sailors will honor the history of the Mills Trophy Race this week, then set sail to write the next chapter.

The 90th running of the Mills takes place on Friday, with a staggered start from near the Toledo Harbor Light. The first boats are expected to reach the finish line near Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

As the different classes of boats cover the various marked courses out on the open lake, all of them will pass over the exact location of the Battle of Lake Erie, where Oliver Hazard Perry led the U.S. Navy to victory against the British 200 years ago.   more...

2013 Cowtown Classic MC Regatta May 4-5 Lake Hoover - Columbus, Ohio

  #
Spring has sprung for sure and spring brought some big unstable windy conditions this year to Lake Hoover just outside Columbus, Ohio. Thirty-one MC teams made it to this annual fun event on one long, skinny lake. This lake is a couple of miles long running north and south but only a couple of hundred yards wide. Like most spots in the upper Midwest normal winds usually consist of southwest winds or southeast winds in the spring and summer but not for these two days.  more...

Thistle Midwinters East - 2013

  #
The annual pilgrimage to St. Pete this year took at twisted road for myself and my team.  Ideally, we like to get to the venue a few days early to rig, relax, practice, etc.  This year, however, I’d have to get there via Miami and the Etchells Midwinters.  This was part of the Jag Series that Jon McClean, Paul Abdullah and I were involved in all winter and we wanted to make sure we did great in the last event.  Though we didn’t do ‘great’, I had fun with Jon & Paul and we finished respectably.  more...

Organize Your Efforts

  #

Sailing is a complex sport, and sailing a Laser adds additional physical challenges to the head game any boat demands. To be successful at a multifaceted activity requires a strategic plan for continual learning and progressive competency. Keep your plan simple and the successive steps small.

It is difficult to keep all aspects of a multipart project in mind. Breaking out the main areas of concern makes everything more obvious and therefore manageable. List the major areas where you need to continually gain increased competency and then set specific goals for moving each one ahead a small step. If you want to put more attention on one or two, fine. But don’t ignore the others.  more...

Rule of Thumb: Distances and Angles on the Horizon

  #
Rule of thumb channel markers

There are plenty of times on boats when a lookout has to relay a sighting on the horizon to someone else on board. This can be tricky if the second person can’t focus right where the lookout is pointing. (Picture a lookout on an aircraft carrier whistling the admiral over: “Yessir, just put your chin on my shoulder and follow my finger. See that leeeeetle dark speck over there under the cloud that looks sort of like a dog under some broccoli?”)  more...

It Takes a Special Type to Iceboat

  #
ClarkSail reporter Willy Clark recently got his first shot at iceboating when he followed the New England Ice Yachting Association to Squam Lake, New Hampshire for the 2013 Doc Fellows regatta. After a day spent watch the runners go by one thing is clear – it takes a special type to be an iceboater. Below are some of Willy’s thoughts on the matter.

have seen iceboats race a number of times before, but I never really thought much about it until my cousin and close sailing buddy Oliver Moore got hooked into the NEIYA a few winters back. I knew that they were absurdly fast, and I obviously thought they were extremely cool and exciting. However I must admit that I never really thought much about iceboating. This is the way it is for a lot of “soft water” sailors; they are aware of iceboating and that it’s very special in its own way. But that is about the extent of it, and after a day spent in and around the things I think I can explain why – it isn’t really like sailing.  more...
