The LMYC is ready to race. On Saturday, April 21, 2018, a  work crew consisting of a dozen or so of our members pitched in and moved Sunfish, raked and otherwise got things ship shape. Thanks to all who came down and to Joe Fleming for the coffee and donuts. A week later, Perry and Margaret hosted our first official social event for 2018, the Prep Signal Party, with mast raising and the Cinco de Mayo Party the following week. Racing started on May 20, 2018 and will certainly continue every Sunday until Oct. 18, 2018. Races start at 1:00pm.

Our first open event open to all LMCC members, the Gabor Cup Regatta, will be held on Sunday, June 3, 2018. Registration opens at 12:00pm and the races begin at 1:00 pm. The scoring is handicapped so any boat has a chance to win. If you have a sailboat of any kind, come  down and join us on the race course.  You may just surprise yourself!
