august 2013 sunfish midwest schedule

there are 6 upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of August.

Sunday, August 11th – Fun Sunfish Regatta (Open)

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.

…2pm start, open to all, no fees, there are trophies, very informal, short course, numerous starts…

Saturday, August 17th – Scowfish Regatta (Open)

this is a regatta for both Sunfish and MC Scow sailboats.  it will be the 8th annual regatta for the MC Scows, and the 12th annual regatta for the Sunfish.  the event is being held at Portage Lake Yacht Club in Pinckney, Michigan. more information can be found here.

Saturday & Sunday, August 24th & 25th – Midwest Sunfish Regional #2

this is the 2nd Midwest Regional, and is being held on Lake Michigan by Lake Bluff Yacht Club.

Sunday, August 25th – Just For Fun #3 (Open)

the Hueston Sailing Association (map to lake here) already hosted Just for Fun #1 (May) and Just for Fun #2 (July).  this is their 3rd race in the Just for Fun series.  once again:

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

Sunday, August 25th – Fun Sunfish Regatta (Open)

this is the same day as the Just for Fun #3 above, and is the same racing venue as the Fun Sunfish Regatta on August 11th (see above for information).

Saturday, August 31st & Sunday, September 1st – GDSC Open – Labor Day Regatta

the Greater Detroit Sunfish Club (GDSC) (also check out their Yahoo Group, it’s sometimes a bit more up-to-date) hosts an annual camping trip with Sunfish racing to be held over Labor Day weekend.  they are repeating things from last year, with the event being held at Tawas Bay, Michigan, with racing to be held on Tawas Bay which is part of  Lake Huron.  many from the group will be camping at the Tawas Point State Park, but the group will be launching their sailboats from the public ramp next to Timberlane Resorts, where some of the group is also staying.
