Report from SSC One Design Regatta:

Saturday morning, June 8, the Annual SSC OD Regatta was combined with the Thistle Lake Erie District and Michiana District Championships. The Thistles had 29 boats. There were 8 Interlakes registered to compete. All were welcomed to a flooded parking lot and boat launching area and high winds from the north east. The west end of Lake has been experiencing historically high water levels and we are learning how to deal with it.

The race committee sent the Fleets to the East Bay for the scheduled three races on Saturday in 15 to 18 knot winds with gusts to 22 knots. The RC set up windward - leeward courses. The safety boats kept busy with capsizes, equipment failures followed by inadvertent crew swimming adventures in the cool water. The ISCA sailors completed three races and the TCA only two. Back on shore, a couple post race cool beverages were followed by a hearty comfort food dinner with root beer floats for dessert.

Sunday the parking lot water subsided, just a little and there were no white caps. The wind shifted to the east and lightened to 10 to 15. The RC chose the Main Bay, about two miles west for clearer air, and to avoid some of the big puffs. The RC got two races in and all headed back to SSC for burgers brats and awards.

A big thank you to all the SSC volunteers on the water and onshore for all their time and talents to host this first class event. All were invited back next year and requested to bring some fellow sailors.

Respectfully submitted,

Bernie Ashyk , Regatta Chair
