Since our last writing, we have had the ECSC Regatta. Despite several of our sailors being out for the Mackinaw races on Lake Huron and Michigan, we were able to field 11 boats in four fleets for the regatta. Even though the number of boats was not large, there was a lot of good competition and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. There were three boats from the Purdue University sailing team participating…adding a very positive element to the event. Les Miller’s team won White Fleet, Steve Earnhart won Blue Fleet, Ms. Chan from Purdue won Green Fleet, and Jan and Nan Wishard’s boat won the Red Fleet. Our congratulations to them.
We are started into the Summer Series racing season and have had very good participation, competition, and winds. When I say good winds, I mean stronger than usual – not necessarily steadier!!
Our next racing events are the Ladies Regatta on August 6th and the Indy 200 on September the 10th. Please join our Wednesday and Sunday Series racing schedule whenever you are able.
The Dedicated Race Committee project is still in progress and doing well. We are finding that we are acquiring non-racer volunteers that are enjoying the racing experience as well as providing race committee help on many races instead of just one. We still have more room for more non-racing volunteers. If you are interested volunteering for work credits, please contact Nancy Goff or me. If you are a racer, be sure to go to the SignUp Genius on the ESCS Racing page and be sure to sign up for race committee to get your racing credits.
