Celebrating 50+ years strong as a sailing club!
LSC Board of Directors
Mary joined the Sailing Club in the mid 1980s with her husband, John, having never sailed in her life. But soon after, she was hooked, and now enjoys sharing her love of sailing with others. John and Mary have raced Snipes around the country, and met many wonderful people that also enjoy sailing, even bare-boating in the Caribbean with some of them. Besides racing a Snipe, they have a “fleet” of extra Snipes they allow others to sail, as well as two Sunfish and a Chrysler 22 that occasionally sees the water.
Director at Large & Liaison for Buildings & Grounds Committees
I began my sailing experiences on a Sunfish back in the 70s through a high school friend who lived on Pine Lake. My first boat ownership was in 1990 with an old 17 foot McGregor Venture (micro-cruiser). I enjoyed it so much I upgraded years later to a Hunter 23.5. I keep my Hunter at a slip in the Marina, making getting out sailing easier. I enjoy a few trips each year to Lake McConaughy and its sand beaches. I usually sail solo, but my wife Donna accompanies me often when she’s able and it’s not too windy. Both of us enjoy nature, music, being outside and being part of a sailing community. Donna and I look forward to continued participation and to adding to those new friends we’ve already met in the Sail club.
LSC Fleet Captains
Lincoln Snipe Fleet #567 Captain
Margaret and I joined the Lincoln Snipe Fleet and Lincoln Sailing Club in the mid-80’s.
We have three sons Marshall, Grant and Will and a grandson Henry who just turned one on March 13th. We have a snipe and a laser sailboat.
Sunfish Fleet #706 Captain
Dale took his first sailboat ride in a Sunfish in 2008 and soon had one of his own to sail. He began racing at Holmes Lake on Thursday nights in 2010 and joined LSC in 2016. He sails his 20’ wooden Sooty Tern double ended sailboat and races his Sunfish. He is thrilled by the magic of the wind propelling a boat across the water and enjoys racing or just cruising the lake.
