there are (6) upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of July.
Saturday, June 30th & July 1st – GDSC Regatta (Open)
first up is a repeat from June’s schedule, as it falls right on the end of June and start of July. this is a weekend camping event with the Greater Detroit Sunfish Club (GDSC), who have a full summer schedule of racing in the greater metro Detroit area (see full schedule here). they will be camping at Lakeport State Park on Lake Huron, only a few miles north of Port Huron, and will hold several races on Saturday and Sunday.
this is usually 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 7th and Sunday, July 8th – 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, to honor the late Sam Meyers. 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). rustic camping is available.
Sunday, July 8th – Just for Fun #3 (Open)
this is the same day as the Sam Meyers Regatta above — 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!
Saturday, July 21st – Lake Wawasee Sunfish Open
Saturday, July 28th and Sunday, July 29th – PBC Invitational Regatta (Open)
this race will be held on the Maumee River, and will be hosted by the Perrysburg Boat Club.
Sunday, July 29th – Fun Sunfish Regatta (Open)
similar to the Fun Sunfish Regatta 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!
