We have water at Buckeye Lake! (6-9 feet across the racing area) It's not ideal yet, but it's enough to sail. Next weekend, we're racing both Sunday (2pm) and Monday (11am). If you're nearby, come join us! We'd love to have a lot of sails out there! We'll have all types of boats, so it'll probably be a handicapped race, but if there are enough Interlakes, we can do a separate start. Our most important goal for the day.... FUN!!!

(BTW... depending how the season goes, we're seriously looking at doing the Interlake part of the Snowball at Buckeye Lake this fall... even if we have to stay at Alum for the big boats another year)

I'm trying to get the Saturday off work then I'll be there

Let's face it, the Class can't stand me bitching about CRW another season. Next is B1D.

Koski Dental is looking to sponsor the class since this has been my 2nd sailing visit and not just on Team R... "Spit it out or swallow it but keep trimming!" I'll survive. ... See MoreSee Less

I hope everyone had fun at the Chiefs regatta last weekend. I know I did! Looking forward Cleveland Race week is on our schedule. Hoover was very generous as was Grand Traverse Yacht Club in moving the George Fisher Memorial Regatta to the weekend of the 25th of June so it did not conflict with Cleveland Race week. Please plan on sailing at race week it is incredible to see all of the boats out sailing and you will have a good time I promise. Don't miss this regatta it is the biggest regatta in our area. I hope to see 25 boats on the line! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to all of Fleet 23 for a great weekend

Had a great time at my first regatta. I saw a nice slideshow playing at the awards. Will those photos be posted online somewhere?

Sorry I missed it this year. Clark, did your crew stay dry this year? Lol

Nobody stayed "dry", but I think only Tom Humphrey actually capsized. As Matt Bounds would say, "It was a bit sporty" on both days.

My Sea Scout Ship has boat 737 and we are getting a new centerboard for it. I would also like to modify the trunk to the open top design.

Are there plans anywhere out there for this modification?

The drawings are provided on interlakesailing.org

do you already have a centerboard? I've got an extra one sitting in my garage.

I'm working on one right now. But if it falls thru I'll let you know. Thank you.
