Feeling Winter Blues? Start Planning Your Sailing Season Now!

Got a touch of cabin fever? Feeling like winter will never end? Start planning your sailing season and it'll seem like it's just around the corner!

We have news of Midwest District events that you can put on your calendar right now. Most important is the Midwest Districts, which will be hosted this year by Fleet #3, Sheridan Shores Yacht Club in Wilmette, Ill., June 27-29.

Ben and I participated in their Race Weekend last summer and let me tell you, they know how to throw a regatta party! Plus the sailing was great (really windy....) and the view of the Chicago skyline was breathtaking, though that also could have just been me trying to catch my breath during the racing!

Don't forget to nominate your club's regatta for this year's Midwest District Travel Trophy. Last year participating regattas were Districts (Eagle Creek), Race Weekend (Sheridan Shores), Ephraim, Carlyle's Egyptian Cup and Glow in the Dark (Clinton).

I'll post about other upcoming regattas shortly.
