Rick Johnson Double-handed Series CSYC ralph deeds photos

Here are some pictures from the August 6, 2006, Rick Johnson Memorial Double-handed Series race at Crescent Sail YC on Lake St. Clair. The wind was NW about 15 knots, shifty and puffy. It was a perfect evening for sailing on Lake St. Clair--plenty of wind and smooth water. It doesn't get much better than this.

Weekday evening racing has increased in popularity in recent years on Lake St. Clair, especially Jib and Main racing because it doesn't kill an entire day and crew demands aren't as great.

After the races at Crescent we grill hot dogs and hamburgers and hash over the race or the latest controversy at the club.
