june 2010 sunfish midwest schedule

there are (5) upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of June.  the full Midwest region schedule can be found here (.pdf file).  as far as I understand it, if a race is called an “open” race, it means they don’t count towards standings for the Midwest Regionals, and membership in the Sunfish Class is not required to participate in the race.

Saturday, June 5th – PBC Invitaional Regatta (Open) (NOTE: revised date!)

this race will be held on the Maumee River, and will be hosted by the Perrysburg Boat Club.  also note, per the email I received announcing the schedule change: “a big party will be held Friday evening, June 4th.”  so giddyup!

Sunday, June 13th – Fun Sunfish Regatta #1 (Open)

this race will be held at Kiser Lake State Park in Ohio (map of state park here, .pdf file) and is hosted by the Kiser Lake Sailing Club.  the lake is popular for sailing as motorboats are not allowed on the lake.  per the Midwest schedule notes:

2:00pm Start. Open to all, no fees.  There are trophies, relaxed atmosphere, short courses, numerous starts, FUN!

Sunday, June 13th – Just for Fun #2 (Open)

this is the same day as the Fun Sunfish Regatta #1 above, so Ohio is going to be busy with Sunfish that day!  the Hueston Sailing Association (map to lake here) already hosted Just for Fun #1 back in May.  this is their 2nd race in the Just for Fun series (one more in July and one in August).  once again:

Racing 1:30pm to 4:00pm – no fees, no trophies, just fun!

Saturday, June 19th – Lake Lansing Regatta (Open)

this race will be held at Lake Lansing by the Lansing Sailing Club, the same group that put together the sweet Google map showing all the lake features, including shallow areas and general wind directions.  per the Midwest schedule:

… Sunfish friendly site, easy launch, includes lunch…

Saturday & Sunday, June 26th & 27th – Midwest Regional Championship #1

the first Midwest Regional Championship race will be held at Wolf Lake Yacht Club (map to lake here), the site of the Northern Warmups in May I haven’t seen an official notice of race (NOR) yet, but will post it when I find it. it is HERE (.pdf file), updated 6/11/10
