Interlake Interludes

Jeff JonesFleet News, Hoover Sailing Club, Leadline

As you read this June has come to an end. Your Interlake fleet hosted another successful George Fisher Memorial on June 22-23. THANK YOU to all the volunteers that made this happen. We could not have all this fun without you.

The Regatta saw 18 boats on the water–a few more from last year. We saw a few less Hoover boats but an increase in non-Hoover participants. Winds were light and shifty from mainly ENE on Saturday and SSE on Sunday. Tight racing was seen in all six races resulting in four race winners. 

Top 5 Finishers:

5. Nate, Bridget and Vincent Ireland 

4. Tim and AJ Savage

3. Jamie Jones and Lisa Aspery

2. Bryan and Tiffany Parker

1. Jeff Jones and Mike McClinchie

If you happen to travel to an away regatta, talk up our regatta and let’s see if we can get some additional boats for next season. With that said, should we have a regatta where we all travel together (Indian Lake)? Road Warriors part deux? I am also taking suggestions for improvements on next year’s regatta. Contact me at jeffjones680@hotmail.com

In the way of a personal challenge, let’s see if we can get 20 boats out either sailing or racing at any given time. If you need help, let me know and I will put the word out.

Do you have a social event idea to help get people on the water? Just let me know! I’d love to help make it happen! 

See you on the water.
