july 2010 sunfish midwest schedule

there are (7) upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of July.  the full Midwest region schedule can be found here (.pdf file).

Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th – GDSC Open Regatta (Open)

this is the annual regatta held by the Greater Detroit Sunfish Club (GDSC) (also check out their Yahoo Group, it’s a bit more up-to-date) over July 4th, and for at least the last few years, it has been held at Lakeport State Park, located right on the shores of Lake Huron, only a few miles north of Port Huron.

this is one of the GDSC’s most heavily attended events, with most families camping at the state park for the weekend.  due to the late notice, if you would like to attend – your best bet is to probably join the GDSC Yahoo Group, and let them know, so they can get you visitor pass information for the state park.

Saturday, July 3rd – 4th Annual Carpenter Lake Regatta (Open)

also over the July 4th weekend, the 4th Annual Carpenter Lake Regatta will be held from 1pm to 4pm, with 3 races (minimum) for similar classes.  the event is located at Carpenter Lake, in Eagle River, Wisconsin (way up near the western end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula).  the notice of race (NOR) can be found here (.pdf file).

Saturday, July 10th and Sunday, July 11th – Sam Meyers Memorial Regatta (Open)

this is another 2-day regatta, hosted by the Pymatuning Sailing Club at the Pymatuning State Park in Linesville, Pennsylvania.  this is technically a race in the Mid-Atlantic Region event, but is close enough to the Midwest if you’re willing to travel that far.  it is a multi-class event, with Sunfish, Laser, Force 5, Hobie 16 and Hobie 18 sailboats racing if enough pre-register.

Sunday, July 11th – Fun Sunfish Regatta #2 (Open)

similar to the Fun Sunfish Regatta #1 held in June, 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, July 11th – Just for Fun #3 (Open)

again, this is the same day as the Fun Sunfish Regatta #2 above, so Ohio is again 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 and the Just for Fun #2 back in June.  this is their 3rd race in the Just for Fun series (one more in August).  once again:

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

Friday, July 16th and Saturday, July 17th – Waukegan Yacht Club One Design Classic (Open)

this is another 2-day event, but not 2 days of sailing… it  starts with a party on Friday evening, the usual racing on Saturday, and closing with a party on Saturday night.  the event is hosted by the Waukegan Yacht Club in Waukegan, Illinois, with the racing held on Lake Michigan.

Saturday, July 31st and Sunday, August 1st – Double the Fun Regatta (Open)

this event will be held at the Wolf Lake Yacht Club in Jackson, Michigan (map to lake here).  this club was also host to the Northern Warmups in May, as well as the Midwest Regional Championship #1 in June.  this event is a Snipe and Sunfish regatta.
