Some beautiful images of the lake taken by John Miller

Photos from Oktoberfest 2021

On Sept. 12th we had impromptu sunfish and laser races. Since, That was who showed up. We had Father and son Mackey and each sailing their own sunfish, and John Trela was in his laser. Winds were rather heavy. We placed a start near the club and a Windward mark in the cove North of the island. The first race was handily won by Mackey Jr. Mackey senior ran into some trouble and decided to stop and wait for the next race. John followed suit, though he was doing pretty well. The second race was also won by Mackey Jr. With his father behind him and John in third. A fun and sporting time was had.

And near the end, this beautiful other racing boat breezed through (Brown/White sails).

2019 Gabor CUP Results

The weather cooperated and we had 4 Lightnings and 2 Snipes participate. Hank and Beth officiated and John Miller scored the race.

Rich Miner and Crew came in 1st, Perry Anderson and Crew 2nd, and Tim Mackey came 3rd. There was a tie for 3rd between Tim and Christopher Mackey but Tim won based on the accumulated time for the 2 races.

Rumor has it that Christopher threw out the anchor in order to let his dad win on Fathers Day!

After the race we had a fabulous party at the Mackeys house. Thanks to Susan and Karl for arranging everything, Mark for the music, and Mary Beth and Tim for hosting it.

Karl Hauck, Break Dancer! Who knew?

Surprise visitors to the club on Sunday August 5th were former LMYC members Dick Schoell (in red shirt) and his son Eric Schoell, both Snipe and Sunfish sailors back in the day. Dick now lives in Florida and Eric in Massachusetts. The Schoell family moved from Lake Mohawk in 1989. They are flanked by old friends Gail & Rich Miner.
