Ask Chad Headlee or Jeff Jones. I thought there was a flier, not an official NOR, in the last Intercom.

Indian Lake is just around the corner!  A one day regatta on May 21

Thanks for hosting the event! Once again if you listened to the weather man, you lost out. Winds were brisk at times but not unmanageable. Got in 4 good races, came in & buttoned up the boats before the storms moved in. Weeds were bad close to the club but not too bad once you got out to the race area.

Gretchen’s 80th birthday at Leatherlips. First female Interlake owner and Class President, a true Class act and my mentor. She will be dearly missed.

I saw this regarding the Stumpbuster- assuming it applies to Interlakes as well? ... See MoreSee Less

Was wondering the same thing

We will know for sure on Sunday if Interlake’s are cancelled as well.

Looks like a go now… with some caveats….

Lightening Districts are still on in Mansfield June 18-19. NoR is our. I’m your PRO, everyone is welcome!

What sad ecological meltdown. Unless the EPA can get a grip within the decade it’s like sailing in a salad bowl… or Bayview in the summer.

Update: The Indian Lake regatta scheduled for May 21st is still ON. Although there are an abundance of weeds along the shore, the main lake continues to be sailable. If you are planning on attending the regatta, please be aware that the club will be towing boats out to the main lake area. You will also need to clear your rudder and centerboard often. ...

The “weed situation” piqued my interest.

The Interlake Class lost a great one Friday, my mom, Gretchen Heinke. After an amazing 88 year life, she passed away peacefully in hospice. She asked to be cremated with no service, but asked that everyone raise a toast in her honor. 🍺 Cheers to you Gretchen 🍻❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Wow yes we lost a great one for sure. Very sorry it’s the natural course of life but your never ready for it! My Mom was my biggest fan, I miss her in the daily! Toast to Gretchen and happy she is not suffering.

One of the legends of the Class. I may raise two or three for her.

Wow she was one of the best

Liz and I have many fond memories chatting with Gretchen and always enjoyed her support of the class.

I didn't know her, but if she sailed an Interlake & was a Buckeye fan, she had to be a great lady!

For you cats who are always buying new North Sails every year, does anyone have a main and jib a few years old that your willing to sell? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

There is a listing from Skip Dieball on the Interlake classifieds but it's over a year old.

I have a Greiner main that is about two years old and an older north jib. Main is in good shape but wrong cloth. Perfect for cruising

I have three sets you can choose from. Club racer to a set of Evolutions that have five races on them.

I trade a handle of rum for my first set of interlake sails.

**World Sailing Looking for Classes/Fleets/Clubs to Test a new Rule 18, Mark-Room**

Without a doubt, the most complicated rule in the rule book is Rule 18, Mark-Room. It is the rule that applies when boats are rounding or passing marks. The WS Racing Rules Committee has commissioned a Rule 18 Working Party made up of international sailors and rules experts to try and find ways to simplify rule 18 without significantly changing the way the game is currently being played. The Rule 18 WP is looking for fleets who would be willing to **test a new rule 18 between May 1 and July 15, 2022.** The test would include a packet with the test rule and supporting information, a Zoom session with a member of the Rule 18 WP for all the participants before the testing began, and a follow-up Zoom session at the end of the test period for the participants to share their experiences, thoughts and suggestions. Any fleets, clubs, sailing organizations or classes, etc. willing to help the Rule 18 WP by testing a new rule 18, please **contact Dave Perry at [davperry@optonline.net](mailto:davperry@optonline.net)**.
