CSYC Monday Night Double-Handed Race 8-17-15

Conditions for the Monday night double-handed race at CSYC were ideal--12 knots out of the southwest and smooth water. Junior sailor Johnny Walton skippered the winning boat in the Express 27 class. The Race Committee chaired by Mike Struble did it's usual fine job. And everyone enjoyed re-hashing their mistakes at the barbecue after the race. Thanks to Jan and Dave Gaden and the other contributors to the sumptuous variety of delicacies.

Here are the results for the top three boats in each class:


1. Frinedship

2. Manitou

3. Red Iguana

JAM B--Express 27

1. Rip Tide

2. Lorax

3. Mika


1. Fugue State

2. Shakedown

3. Prime Time








Never Alone

Thanks, Will. Good to hear from you. Despite several aches and pains, I'm still racing my sailboat three times a week in the summer and fall.

Sailing is one of the many things about which I am clueless!

Awesome pictures. As a novice in the art of lake sailing I am wondering how big the boats are and how many are included in the crew.

This particular race was for two people per boat. Normally my 27 ft boat sails with four or five. The 35-40 ft boats sail with 6-10 crew.
