august 2014 sunfish midwest schedule

there are (8) [holy smokes!] upcoming Sunfish races in the Midwest Region during the month of August.  there are 4 different races happening on the weekend of August 23rd & 24th!  busy times wrapping up the summer.

Saturday, August 9th – 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 10th – 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.  the event is hosted by the Charlevoix Yacht Club, and racing will be held at the northwest end of the lake.  you can find the notice of race here (.pdf file).

Sunday, August 10th – Fun Sunfish Regatta (Open)

the printed schedule I got shows this as the 11th (Monday), but these are usually held on Sundays… so let’s just call it the 10th of August.  this is the same day as the Charlevoix Open above, but will be down in Ohio.  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.
