august 2010 sunfish midwest schedule

there are (9) upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of August.  the full Midwest region schedule can be found here (.pdf file).  I posted the 1st one in the July schedule, but I’ll re-post it here since it overlaps this weekend into the start of August:

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.  the notice of race (NOR) can be found here (.pdf file).

Sunday, August 1st – Lake Bluff Regatta (J Sheppard Memorial Regatta)

this event will be held at Lake Bluff Yacht Club,

located in Lake Bluff, Illinois along the shore of Lake Michigan north of Chicago.  This provides an excellent place to enjoy sailing and learn in many varied sailing conditions.

the notice of race (NOR) can be found here (.pdf file).

Saturday, August 7th – Douglas Lake Regatta (Open)

this regatta is put together by the Douglas Lake Sunfish Fleet 700, and the event will be held on Douglas Lake in the northern part of Michigan’s lower peninsula (Google map).

Beautiful, large inland lake.  Good sized racing fleet.  Lots of room for launching and recovery.

Sunday, August 8th – Lake Charlevoix Open Regatta (Open)

this is fairly close to the race the previous day on Douglas Lake, so it’d be a great way to get 2 races in in the same general area.  Lake Charlevoix (“3rd largest inland lake in Michigan!”) is beautiful – I spent several vacations up there with my best friend back in the ol’ high school days, although back then we were cruising around on jet-skis.  I would double check, though, as the Charlevoix Yacht Club website lists the regatta date as August 1st (I confirmed with the race chair – the regatta will be August 8th).

Sunday, August 8th – Fun Sunfish Regatta #3 (Open)

this is the same day as the Charlevoix Open above, but will be down in Ohio.  similar to the Fun Sunfish Regatta #1 held in June and #2 in July, 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.

Sunday, August 8th – Just For Fun #4 (Open)

again, this is the same day as the Fun Sunfish Regatta #3 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 (May) and the Just for Fun #2 (June).  this is their 4th race in the Just for Fun series.  once again:

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

Saturday, August 21st and Sunday, August 22nd – Scowfish Regatta (Open)

this is a 2-day regatta for both Sunfish and MC Scow sailboats.  it will be the 5th annual regatta for the MC Scows, and the 9th annual regatta for the Sunfish.  the event is being held at Portage Lake Yacht Club in Pinkney, Michigan. the NOR can be found here (.pdf file).

Friday, Aug 27th to Sunday, Aug 29th – Midwest Regional Championship #2

the 2nd regional championship will be held at Wawasee Yacht Club on Lake Wawasee in Syracuse, Indiana (Google map).  Friday night begins with registration and a welcome party, with racing to begin on Saturday morning and continues on Sunday. the NOR can be found here (.pdf file).

Sunday, August 29th – Fun Sunfish Regatta #4 (Open)

same venue and general info as the Fun Sunfish Regatta #3 on August 8th, see above for more details.
