60LOGO

Want To Save $50 Bucks? Register For The NAC Before June 1!

We already OVER 50 boats registered for the NAC, which is great! We are more than half way to our goal of 60 boats for our 60th! Meanwhile, we are forcing our sailors into the 21st century by requiring online registration. I know, I know! I hate progress too! And change? Forget about it!!

But there you have it; even us oldsters have to accept the inevitable. So sit down in front of your computer (oh, if you are reading this you already are). So, go get an adult beverage, come back, sit down, go to FSSA.COM, and follow the links. If you need to, find your daughter or your grandson or your neighbor to help you navigate. Don't let the internet stop you from having the time of your life!

But the main point of this particular message is that registration for the NAC Championship goes up by $50 smackeroos after June 1. And as some of us get older, time flies. June 1 will be here before you know it!!

That fee includes two tickets for the Wednesday night annual banquet for skipper and one crew. Additional tickets are $50. Greg Fisher will be the featured speaker at the banquet. Plus, there will be cake. Enough said. 

Don't forget this is our 60th Anniversary year, a very special milestone - so make your plans soon and join the fun!

Learn to Sail at the Deep Creek Sailing School – Celebrating 25 years!

dcss1

Registration is open at the Deep Creek Sailing School. Enjoy beautiful scenery as you learn to sail in the mountains of western Maryland. In addition to our very popular junior weeks and teen week, we have three adult instruction weeks scheduled. The weeks of June 19 and July 17 will focus on beginner/intermediate levels of sailing and introduction to racing. The week of July 24 will focus on intermediate/advanced levels of sailing including sail trim, racing, and spinnaker skills. We understand that a week may be too much of a commitment - hence we are offering both Monday to Friday and Monday to Wednesday options for adult weeks. The school also offers 3-hour private lessons. On July 8, 2017, the Deep Creek Sailing School is celebrating its 25th year since being established in 1992. Former instructors and students are welcome to join the celebration. Contact the sailing school if you are interested.

2016 Sandy Douglass Memorial Regatta - Deep Creek, MD

2016SDskippers

Skippers Meeting - story by Doc Templeton

The 22nd Annual Sandy Douglass Memorial Regatta was held at Deep Creek Lake in Deer Park, Maryland on July 30 and 31.  Deer Park is the home of Flying Scot, Incorporated and, nearby, the two yacht clubs that make up the Deep Creek Yacht Racing Association: Deep Creek Lake Sailing Association (DCLSA) and Deep Creek Yacht Club, Inc. (DCYC).  This memorial regatta is an annual tribute to Sandy Douglass, the designer and first builder of the Flying Scot.  This is the only regular regatta here in Western Maryland in which boats are invited to attend from off the lake.  In addition to Flying Scots from these two yacht clubs were out-of-towners from neighboring states.

The racing weekend, hosted by Doc and Judy Templeton, kicked off with a Burrito Bash party on Friday night with entertainment by DCLSA club member Joan Coraor.  This event gave visiting sailors a chance to get acquainted with the DCLSA Club layout as well as the local sailors from both Clubs.  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful decorations and great food.

Saturday morning began with a hosted breakfast and skippers’ meeting prior to the first race.  There was a total of 43 boats divided into four classes: Gold, Silver, Masters and Challengers.  There were eight boats from off the lake.

Visitors Rule at the 2016 Berlin YC Regatta

 2016byc2  2016byc1

The Berlin Yacht Club Annual Invitational Regatta has been called “a true Sandy Douglass regatta” because it is a multi-class regatta featuring Flying Scots, Thistles, and Highlanders. The regatta is held on Father’s Day weekend every year at Berlin Lake near North Benton, Ohio.

This year the BYC Regatta was held on June 18-19, 2016. 16 Flying Scots attended, along with 21 other boats from other classes. Scot sailors traveled from as far away as Chicago, Illinois, to attend the regatta. The Ohio weather was warm and sunny, but winds were light and variable on Saturday. One shortened race was held on Saturday, and all in attendance returned to shore to enjoy a sumptuous appetizer buffet, pulled-pork dinner, and folk music provide by BYC Member Lesa Miller.
