Cedarpoint Yacht Club NACs

We’re at the fourth day of the NACs and I haven’t blogged yet! I’m going to make a quick installment. Let’s call this the food chapter.We’ll talk about yesterday’s racing tonight.

 

Packin' for the NACs

So here it is Tuesday and we're packin' for the NACs! Heading out early to visit my family in Bethesda, MD. The boat is all set, but I'm struggling with the clothes. Sadly, we have no clothes with our club logo on it and I have nothing for parrothead night!! Woe is me!! Who knew sailing could be so stressful?!

Ah well, we've paid our money, we've packed our measurement certificate and our trailer is road legal, so the rest is just details.

Hit the road!!

Steve Hartman, co-founder of Glow Regatta, Dies

Hello All
I am saddened to have to report that longtime Flying Scot sailor Steve Hartman died this week from an infection. He was 64. Steve was a legend at the Clinton Lake Sailing Association, especially for establishing the Glow-in-the-Dark regatta, which drew sailors from as far as Texas and Florida. The regatta was as well known for its fabulous food, courtesy of Steve, as its great racing, complete with wacky trophies, even including a toilet seat!
