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?

A special thank you to Lori Walker and Larry Scheer for inviting us to the 'Farm at Rainbows End' for their Christmas Sailboat Lighting Party. A great time was had by all. The Alpacas and dogs made us most welcome too! 


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.

Our Fleets...

The LMYC hosts several racing fleets - Lightnings, Snipes, and Lasers

This 19' sloop-rigged sailboat is celebrating the 70th anniversary of its design.  It has been sailed at the LMYC for all 70 years!  With a crew of 3, this boat is the largest in our club fleets.

This light, fast, 2 person crewed sailboat is a popular boat in the club. The LMYC owns four club Snipes that are available to experienced sailors if they do not currently own a boat.




We have boats for sale!
