Hello Sailors & Friends!

Sunday at the Lake -  The wind more than made up for the lack of it last week. While it was blowing about 20 mph out of the north, three brave Sunfish ventured out; Will Thomas, Jen Lee, and Greg Zimmer. Dennis Miller, with assistance from Rhonda Lieske and Maryann Brock set a course for them.  The conditions were challenging, but they were all smiles after two races!  Results and standings are attached.

Coming up - On the calendar this week:
Tuesday June 11, Snipe Fleet Practice 6-8 PM. With the Fire on the Water next weekend, and no Snipe races the last two Sundays, we've decided to have Snipe practice on Tuesday rather than Sunfish practice.  Anyone is still welcome to participate of course, but we plan to focus on Snipes getting in a little practice before the regatta next weekend.  If any of you would like to sail in the regatta, but need to borrow a boat or find a crew, please come on out on Tuesday or let Will Thomas or me know and we'll try to help.  

Next Weekend - June 15-16 - Fire on the Water Classic Snipe Regatta  - The 52nd Annual regatta is just around the corner!  We're expecting Snipes from Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and Omaha to join us, probably about 20 Snipes in all!  Andrew Ozaki has been calling members to ask for their help to support the regatta by bringing some fruit, vegetables or desserts.  Please let him know if you can help. The festivities begin with a welcome party on Friday evening, followed by spectacular racing all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome to come out and watch and join us for the meal events. Meal costs for non-regatta participants are $6 lunch, $15 dinner.  The complete schedule is attached.

Hope to see you on the water soon...think sailing!
