Fish & Weeds Recap 2010

Fish and Weeds Regatta 2010

Saturday started out looking grim for a 3 race regatta, but as the early morning progressed, the weather improved and we had quite a nice day with good breezes.  I think the early morning weather limited the number of guest boats.

We had a total of 17 boats in the fleet.  Races courses were windward- leeward with various course lengths.

Racing started almost exactly on time with Jim Jenson, Wayne Motulewicz, and Joe Sullivan serving as Race Committee. 

The racing was very competitive with the fleet breaking into 2 or 3 pods of closely clustered boats.  If you’ve seen any pictures on posted on the WLYC website, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Wonder Lake sailors acquitted themselves very well Saturday, winning every race and place 3 boats in the top 5.  IW 2, sailed by Ron & Bill led at every mark except the last finish, where the Schroeder brothers, aboard IW14, got by us in the last ten feet.  Damn, I knew we shoulda covered those guys !

Every sailor out there had a great time and the shore party was great too.  Tom and the Horizontal’s crew did a fantastic job with the catering and food service.  Hey, thanks for the beer,Tom !  Every crew had their stories to tell and it was fun reconnecting with the guys from the other lakes.  Some folks took the time to send thank you’s and thank our club for putting on a great event.

As always, Tom Henely and crew came up with an awesome event shirt design.  WLYC event shirts are in high demand.  Some crews ordered early to make sure they got their sizes.  We do have a few left, so get your order in for these highly sought after shirts.

Seriously, a great time was had by all, and the mojitos flowed well into the evening for Ron & me, celebrated a great day on the water.

Sad to day that is the end of the season.
Look for us out there with the ice boats when winter comes.  Now, that is a sailing ride !

We’ll see ya out there.
