october 2010 sunfish midwest schedule

there are (2) upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of October.  the full Midwest region schedule can be found here (.pdf file).

Sunday, October 3rd – OktoberFast Sunfish Series #5 (Open)

the Hueston Sailing Association (map to lake here) was the site for the (4) “Just for Fun” regattas this summer, and they will hold their final Sunfish race – OktoberFast Sunfish Series #5, on Acton Lake in Hueston Woods State Park, Ohio.

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

Saturday, October 23rd – Great Pumpkin Regatta (Open)

this is the last Midwest event of the year, and from what I’ve heard – it’s a pretty great time.  the event is held at the Johnson Slough Yacht Club, in Hinsdale, Illinois.

This is the one you’ve heard about! Loaner boats available. Sail it shore to shore. It’s just deep enough for Sunfish draft. If you capsize, stand up! Lakeside home serves as “host yacht club.” Six races, one day, coffee/donuts, hot lunch, post race snacks, libations, great fun! No matter the weather … 9:00 am registration, 10:00 am start, 5:00 pm packed up/on the road!

    Does you Pumpkin Regatta include people rowing huge pumpkins down the river like up in Wisconsin?

    Very cool. Can you put a Facebook “Like” or Tweet button by your posts?

      Joe – there is a “tweet” button and a “like” button (not Facebook, though) up before the comments section. I will have to look into adding the Facebook button.
