2011 Wife-Husband is at Delevan: Be there or be square!
A fleet in the Midwest District is hosting the prestigious FS 2011 Wife-Husband Regatta, July 30 -31. Delevan Lake Yacht Club is hosting the event this year, and it promises to be great fun. Delevan is a beautiful lake, and the Delevan Lake Yacht Club is top notch venue with superb race management and on-shore hospitality.
Deb and I attended our second Wife-Husband last season at Lake Norman. Challenging sailing conditions, but still a great time. Our first Wife-Husband, the year before, was at Oklahoma City, but was blown out. The wind never dropped below 35 mph --- but the important point is that we still had a wonderful time on shore. The Wife-Husband is one of those very special FS events that make the class unique. If you've never been to one of these, you really owe it to yourself to put it on your calendar. If we give this regatta the strong support it deserves, perhaps one our Midwest teams will be crowned Wife-Husband National Champions for 2011. So, start planning ahead now, and consider marrying your crew (or skipper) if necessary....there's still time....it's been done before, as I learned over dinner at the Lake Norman event last year.
