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 Regatta, on Acton Lake in Hueston Woods State Park, Ohio.
Racing 1:30pm to 4:00pm – no fees, no trophies, just fun!
Saturday, October 15th – 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!
