Commodore’s Comments

As we start the 10th month of the year,
The end of the sailing season is drawing near.
When you’re reading this, there will only be a few more weeks to sail,
That is, if you’re receiving this leadline via email.
If you’re reading a hard copy leadline, I would guess
That what remains of your sailing season is even less.
So, I really want to take this opportunity to encourage you
To come out and sail a few more times before the regular season is through.
If you find you’re not ready to quit and head for the door,
Get yourself a laser and join sailoholics anonymous so you can sail some more.
They run their “therapy” sessions to help you through
As long as the water temperature exceeds 32.

This year the docks will come out on trick or treat day,
Please check with your committee chair to see what’s in play.
The goal is to spread out the work and the people too
To minimize the risk of covid spreading towards you.
Given this will be Halloween, I wonder if I even need to ask,
While you’re working around others can you please wear a mask?
What will be missing is our usual club meeting where we all crowd in a room,
But we’ll make that up early in November, via Zoom.

Our annual awards banquet has gone the direction of many events this year,
But come October 11th, we’ll be handing out awards after sailing along with some beer.
We’ll be out on the HSC lawn in front of the club in the late afternoon sun,
So please stick around after sailing and enjoy our socially distant fun.
Hope to be seeing you soon out at “H” “S” “C”,
As it’s one of my favorite places to be!

Open Letter to Hoover Sailing Club Commodore and Board of Governors

Since the onset of Covid-19 in March, our lives have been turned upside down.  “Maintain six feet between you and another person, be sure to wear your mask and, of course, wash your hands.”  I think all of us are tired of guidance and instruction.  One of the bright spots of my year has been the outstanding leadership and management of club activities by our Commodore and Board.

Their efforts resulted in maintenance of some degree of normalcy.  Their cautious yet common-sense directives made for a very enjoyable summer.  Sure, we missed the hamburgers and beer on Wednesday nights as well as the annual Island Party and miscellaneous events. Still, we were able to enjoy consistent, dependable and reliable Wednesday, Sunday and regatta racing schedules.

Thanks to the many who assured our time on the water as well as outside the clubhouse was well managed. Being able to sail during this ongoing pandemic was a great distraction from the chaos of 2020.

I’m sure I speak for many of our members when I say to the 2020 Commodore and Board of Governors, many thanks for a great summer of sailing.

Event-full! Race Committee Report

The 3rd and final Pursuit race for 2020 was held in August. There were over 30 boats on the starting line.  Steve Lavender is our 2020 Club Champion. 

The Labor Day Series concluded on a windy Monday. Steady winds were less than 15 mph but there were definitely some higher gusts. Race committee was well staffed and did a great job. There were 2 capsizes with one requiring assistance. Mark White and Lisa Kreischer skipped the last race (over Lisa’s wind limit!) and helped out the race committee, in their own Whaler, moving the starting pin while the other rescue boats towed in a capsized Interlake to the dock.

After racing, a Thistle went for a windy ride, while everyone else was putting their boats away or relaxing before the trophy presentation. (I heard that the ride was a test drive for a new potential owner but not sure about that.) The windy ride ended up in a capsize in full view of the cars going over the Smothers Road bridge. The members spectating on the clubhouse lawn sent a crash boat to rescue the sailboat, but after a couple of minutes a second crash boat had to be sent in to rescue both the sailboat and the crash boat. As this was happening the sky was turning dark and a fire engine siren was blaring. It seems that a driver in a car driving over the bridge called 911. 

In the end the Thistle was returned to the dock and drained of water, while one crash boat towed the other with the smiling faces of the capsized crew. The Fire truck came into the HSC parking lot and noticed that we were well in control of the situation. A quick drive through and they were gone. As soon as the boats were put away tornado sirens started blaring. Many of us went into the bathrooms for shelter. Once the coast was clear I wandered around the clubhouse and awarded trophies to the remaining sailors on hand. 

Scow Scoop

Cowtown Regatta
by Clark Wade

The 2020 Cowtown Regatta, re-scheduled from May, happened on a sunny September 19 afternoon at Hoover Sailing Club.  Instead of 2 days of sailing, dinner, awards, and beer… we had 1 day of sailing and none of the above; nor entry fee.  Twenty-five sailors showed up Saturday morning; rigged, launched, and sailed 6 back-to-back races with 1 throw out.

Our new fleet in Atwood sent 5 boats (including 2 on a wonderful, looooong double trailer where the boats were end to end), as did our friends at Cowan. Others came from as far away as Indian Lake, MI and Cave Run, KY.

Jamie and Jeff Jones did a great job dealing with an East wind, the worst possible direction, that at Hoover everyone knows is never just East.  There were huge (60-120 degree) oscillating shifts.  There were times we were hiking hard and a minute later you’re sitting on the low side with your arse in the water.  Especially near the weather mark where sometimes the wind would just die due to the high hills and trees near the shore.  In one race, I remember going around the weather mark and sailing downwind to the leeward mark on port tack the whole way, then on the very next lap, it was starboard tack.  In another race, it was crazy to see the leader way out in front, then a wind shift caused them to just loose it.  I remember watching Richard lead a race, then sailed into a hole and ended up 12th.  Seeing sailors on different tacks going virtually the same direction was common.  Extremely challenging!  By the end of the day I suspect everyone wanted the one thing we didn’t offer…beer!

Regardless of the conditions it was a lot of fun.  There was a tie for first with Mark White (1st GM) with 2 bullets coming out on top followed by Clark Wade (1st M), Steve Sun (1st mega), Richard Blake and Brian Pace.

While there were no trophies given, Mark White, fleet captain, had HooMoover Sailing Club/2020 Cowtown Mugs made and handed them to all who attended.

MC Masters Championship

Matt and Lisa Fisher won the 2020 MC Masters Championship regatta in Clear Lake, Iowa, scoring 1,1,8,8,2 with 46 boats registered. Day one (1,1) sounded light, day two (8,8) was pretty windy. On the final day only 1 race could be completed before the wind exceeded the class limit of 22 mph but they scored a 2nd to close the deal.

Ohio Triple Crown Trophy
by Mark White

A few years ago, the Hoover and Cowan MC fleets got together and decided to score both our Cowtown (9/19) and Cowan Scowin (10/3) regattas together and award a trophy called the Ohio Championship.  In 2019, with the creation of the new MC fleet at Atwood, we’ve added their “Blue Moon” regatta (9/12) to the original two and are now calling the combined trophy the “Triple Crown.”    With the delay of the Cowtown due to COVID from our normal date in early May, all three regattas were held as one day, “Bring Your Own Everything” events in September and October.   Thirteen sailors competed in all three.   We have found that this format has really encouraged participation with all 3 events having very high turnout this year.   The 3 fleet captains are considering making this our permanent format.  With the recent creation of a new fleet at Indian Lake, wouldn’t it be great for all 4 MC fleets in Ohio to participate in 2021?

Thistle—A Hail from the Rail

HSC LABOR DAY SERIES RESULTS:  Congratulations to all who participated!

  1. Bill Miller
  2. Mike McBride/Kimberly Pasley
  3. Steve Lavender

HARVEST MOON RESULTS: This regatta was raced at Atwood on September 19 and 20, the same weekend as the Cowan Regatta. Chris Diffley was the only Hoover skipper listed, but he represented us well on the first day of the regatta. A total of 15 boats participated.

COWAN LAKE REGATTA RESULTS: Would you believe that two boats from Hoover traveled all of the way down to Cowan Lake Sailing Association (and that’s not even part of the Lake Erie Fall Series)? But Steve Lavender persuaded Mike McBride to hit the road south to duke it out in that bowl of a lake. And duke it out they did! Mike won the tie-breaker to finish third, just ahead of Steve, who came in fourth! That’s a little bit reminiscent of the aforementioned Labor Day Series in which Mike’s wife, Kimberly Pasley came in second, to beat Steve, who finished in third place!

SANDUSKY ONE DESIGN REGATTA RESULTS: District Governor Conor Ruppen described the Thistle event as four races, each race having two laps, and each leg of each race was a mile long. Conor also mentioned something about lingering pain, because it was pretty windy on September 26. Dave Stetson (one of Steve Lavender’s crew) later announced that righting a capsized Thistle wasn’t much fun. Apparently they all coped to the best of their various abilities! Finishes of note included:

  • 1. Lee Sackett
  • 2. Tom Hubbell, with John & Betsy Yingling crewing
  • 3. Craig Koschalk
  • 4. Stu Fisher, with Matt Fisher & Ryan Squires crewing
  • 5. Corinne Sackett, with Conor Ruppen, with Carrie Patterson crewing
  • 8. Howard Hill, with daughter Natalie & David ? crewing
  • 10. Steve Lavender, with Dave Stetson & Simon Pennells crewing
  • 14. David Schworm, with son Reed & Mike McBride crewing. (The scores for Team Schworm might need to be corrected according to crew Mike McBride.)

NORTH CAPE BLOWOUT, OCTOBER 3: John Greiner is hosting the 54th North Cape Blowout, which is open to Thistles, Interlakes, and Lightnings. (Results will be made available later.)

CONGRATULATIONS!
Doug Laber for winning the Minton Trophy! Doug is the owner of Great Midwest Yacht Company in Sunbury, Ohio, and former Thistle builder.

In the words of Thistle Class President Tom Hubbell, “I hope everyone will join me in expressing our gratitude and appreciation for the decades of service, going beyond the “business”, that Doug Laber has given to providing boats and advice to many of us. I only have two of his boats, still in great shape. The Minton Trophy recognition (again) this year is emblematic of how we feel about Doug. Thanks, man!” [October/November Bagpipe]

UPCOMING REGATTAS:

October 10 – ANNUAL ICEBREAKER REGATTA at Crescent Sail Yacht Club in Detroit.

October 17 – HOOVER PLAID REGATTA is the Fall Finale of the Lake Erie Fall Series. This will be another event at which we need to practice social distancing. We INSIST that everyone must also wear something VERY PLAID, which will keep people beyond the social distance, of course. We will not serve food or beverages, and you really should not bring alcohol on your boat (no matter how bad it gets). Two adults per boat at Hoover, because we don’t want anybody to get sick. Fleet Captain Mike McBride has sent out the notice of race, and that contains all of the other particulars and peculiarities.

LOOKING AT THE LAKE: The Hoover shores are converging rather rapidly, so we may have to tack or jibe a lot by the end of the season. Jeff Tyndall, who borrowed John Church’s boat and did a jibe-capsize mentioned that the water was still pretty warm on September 27. That’s pretty normal because it looked like Jeff initiated his maneuver in the area of the original stream bed so it would hold the heat longer. Jeff, you didn’t happen to come across my trailer while you were down there, did you? 

Anyway, you don’t need to put your boat away just yet, because we still have a few more weeks of sailing, SO COME ON OUT!

Milling Around

The mud beneath the footbridge from the Clubhouse is peppered with pieces of shale and fallen wood. That strange, thin oily stream with multi-colors is almost dry now. Squirrels have been busy collecting hickory nuts and scattering husks along the south bank of Windmill Cove.

As I zigzag through the riprap and onto the boat rafts, two mallards, huddled under an Opti, stir uneasily as they observe me from a distance. By now the water snakes are hibernating. The joined rafts collectively move and creak under my feet. Nothing more to frighten away.

The boat canvas cover is stiff from the cold morning. I unsnap and fold it backward toward the stern of my boat. My hand reaches for a bailing sponge even before I see how much rain has collected since my last sail.

Centerboard and rudder gleam in the early afternoon light. In the Spring I spent hours repairing the nicks and broken wood from last season’s sailing. I am pleased the smooth bright white finish has remained flawless all season.

Nate and I set the sails and push Blue Muse off the raft and grab the bowline. Impatiently, the sails flap loudly trying to escape with the wind. Like a battle cry, the breeze picks up and plays a few high pitch chords on the shrouds of the boats in dry dock. The water beats our fiberglass drum as it slaps the sides of our boat adding to the adrenaline of adventure ahead.

We adjust tensions and lines in the boat just in time for the first gust to hit our sails. Just past the T-dock, water streams past the bow. Oh yeah! It is cold as it drenches us with a invigorating welcome even before the first tack.

Just smiles on our faces now. The cold water soaks in beneath my lifejacket. But hey, its October sailing.

Fall High School Sailing

High School Sailing is one of the normal things we have been able to do this fall, with some limitations… We’ve hosted 4 events at the lake so far this fall, all socially distanced with masks on while on shore of course! We’ve invited our new friends from Leatherlips’ HS programming over to join us and we’re having a blast making friends and sailing fast! The usual suspects are doing very well this fall: Olentangy Orange HS, made up of member’s kids (Mason Shaw, Molly Jones, Ben Keller, and Jacob Pennels) have won 2 of our 3 Saturday events. While Olentangy Liberty sailors Emma Friedauer, Will Bruner, Porter Martin and Brady Smith won the Steve Nearing Memorial Regatta at Leatherlips.

New this year is our Friday Night Lights series. These events are geared towards our JV sailors that might be newer to driving. Brady and Porter flipped positions in the boat with the same results: a first at our first ever FNL event! In fact, 7 brand new drivers killed it at that event (in big breeze nonetheless!)

Our fall series (the Buckeye Cup) will end this weekend with the 2nd Leatherlips regatta with yet another Hoover HS Sailing team bringing home the hardware for the year! After 4 events, New Albany and Olentangy Liberty are tied with Orange and North behind them. Thomas Worthington rounds out the top 5, meaning a Hoover sweep for sure!

We’ve had some great racing this fall and have been working hard toward next spring’s championship season. Remember that all of the 2020 championship regattas were postponed to 2021 so we’ll hopefully be hosting our spring State Championship as well as the MISSA East qualifiers in April with at least 5 or 6 of our teams. The last time we hosted, only 2 of our teams were prepared and eligible to sail, so that shows the growth our program has made over the last few years, which is something we couldn’t do without the support of the club and BOG! Come out and watch the group sail during the last couple of weeks of practice…you’ll be amazed by their skills!

COVID-19 Club Updates

Update October 2020

The clubhouse is still ONLY open for access to the kitchen and bathrooms and no more than 10 people inside. See more details below.

On Sunday, October 11, the club is hosting a socially distant 2020 Awards Presentation on the clubhouse patio and front lawn at 4:30 pm for members. Individual cans of beer and pop will be provided.  Remember, please wear a mask when inside the clubhouse or within 6 feet of others.

The clubhouse is open. The kitchen is open with a few restrictions.  At this time, the refrigerators, microwaves, stoves, oven, sink and countertops will be available for use.  Appliances and items not available include the ice machine, the kegerator, all pots, pans, dishes, utensils and kitchen tools.  Most of these items have been removed from the kitchen entirely and the cabinets have been tied shut, please leave them that way.  Members are asked to bring all of their own utensils and take everything with them when they leave.  No food is to be left in the refrigerators or freezers if you aren’t actively using the club or out sailing.

Commodore

Update May 27, 2020

Your HSC board members have developed a plan to start up the 2020 season of club racing, starting this Sunday (5/31).    Organized Wednesday night racing will start June 17th with the first pursuit race of the year.     Your fleet captains will probably be reaching out to you shortly as they begin scheduling RC duty.  

The biggest clustering of people tends to occur after sailing on the dock as we wait our turns to pull our boats out.   If you see a large group at the dock, I encourage you to let the crowd dissipate while you either enjoy the day and keep sailing for a little while, or, tie up at the club dock and enjoy the view of the lake from the shade of the clubhouse lawn.

To keep things safe, there will be buckets with cleaning supplies available for wiping down RC boats and likewise there will be similar buckets available for you to use before and after you use club chairs and picnic tables.   Please respect social distancing recommendations both inside and outside the clubhouse.   Inside the clubhouse we recommend you wear a mask, especially when using the bathrooms.   Just in case you’re planning activities outside of sailing, you should know that the kitchen remains closed.  Also the playground is closed. 

I also wanted to let know that our cleaning guy started cleaning on Friday and also cleaned Sunday and Tuesday.  The plan is that there will be 3 cleanings per week until the middle of June when we will go to 5 cleanings per week.  

I did hear some concerns regarding the planned mid-June start of the sail instruction classes.   I want to assure you that Jamie’s team has a very organized plan which includes:

  • All instruction will take place in the yard, dry sail or near our sheds (not in the clubhouse).  
  • The normal “Parent Meeting” will be done video style. So there will be no mass gatherings in the clubhouse prior to the first day of each session.
  • All students’ personal belongings will be placed in individual waterproof bins at the beginning of the day and kept outside.
  • There is no lost and found this year for the learn to sail program.  If an item is left behind, it’s “lost” and will be disposed of.
  • Two outside hand-washing stations are being assembled to eliminate the need for the students to go inside other than to use the bathroom.
  • All sailors and instructors will be wearing face coverings anytime they’re on shore.
  • Every student and instructor will have a temperature and symptom check every day before getting on the grounds. Those failing that test will not be allowed to attend.

The Board has been monitoring guidance from the State of Ohio, listening to our members’ concerns, and working to make plans that respect the safety of everyone while allowing us to enjoy our sport.   Now the time has arrived to sail….and be respectful of others. Please follow these rules so that we can continue to sail. 

I look forward to seeing you on the water this Sunday!

— Your Commodore, Steve Lavender

Update May 21, 2020

With Memorial Day Weekend rapidly approaching I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on club operations.   The board of governors continues to meet regularly to discuss how we can adapt club operations to the Covid environment in a way that is consistent with State and U.S. Sailing guidelines.   Here are some updates:

  1. Starting this weekend the clubhouse will be partially open.  This means that members will have access to the bathrooms and the large room within the clubhouse, and the RC cabinet.  However, the kitchen remains closed.   Signs will be posted requesting that only one person use the bathrooms at a time and reminding members that only 10 people should be in the clubhouse area at a time.  There is disinfectant spray in both bathrooms and the main room and that each person is asked to clean any surfaces that they use. Please maintain adequate social distance when on the patio.  If you choose to use a picnic table you should bring your own wipes to clean it before you use it and after you’re done.   Also, if you’re the last person in the clubhouse, please be sure it is locked up when you leave.
  2. The docks and rafts are all in the water so you can go sailing.
  3. If you arrive at the club during non-busy periods (i.e. not on a weekend) and don’t see evidence of others, it is advisable to close the gate (you don’t need to lock it) after you enter to reduce the incidence of non-members accessing club grounds and facilities.    We’ve had some recent incidences that have led us to this recommendation.
  4. Drysail lot assignments have been sent out, so this weekend might be a good time to come out and set up your boat, and put it in your designated spot.
  5. Club directories will be available in the clubhouse for pick up.
  6. First aid supplies and the AED will be move to the RC cabinet which can be opened with your key.
  7. There will be no organized club racing this weekend.   The board will be meeting early next week to discuss how we can organize racing that is safe for competitors and safe for race committee participants.
  8. Learn to sail programs will begin in mid-June using a format in which there is one person per boat, or two co-habitating people per boat. Read about the updated procedures here.

Update May 9, 2020

1.    A plan was put in place to start returning docks to the water.   As of this email, the “T” dock, or launch dock as some would call it, is now fully installed.  This provides members an opportunity to go sailing while social distancing during the launch and recovery process.   In addition, rafts in the cove on the North side of the club have been put in place.  If you are one of these raft owners and already have your boat set up in west drysail lot, please move your boat to your raft  when you can.  This will make room for more boats in the west lot as more members come out to set up and sail their boats.    The remaining docks and windmill rafts will be installed by small teams over the next few weeks.   Jeff Jones will be sending out drysail lot assignments soon.   When possible please move your boat to its assigned spot. 

2.    We are trying to open the bathrooms at the clubhouse by next weekend.  We still need to finalize the cleaning procedures, signage, etc.  The rest of the clubhouse, including the kitchen, will remain closed for now.  We don’t want to promote the gathering of groups of people in enclosed spaces or risk contamination of the kitchen.   

3.    Fleet racing is still on hold.   While on the surface this looks pretty benign, there are still a lot of issues to work out regarding RC support (how many people in the support and RC boats).  US Sailing is recommending single-handed boats or larger boats with cohabitating teams as we re-start our racing programs and no après sail social activities. 

4.    Regattas are still on hold as they greatly increase the complexity of maintaining a safe environment. 

5.    Jamie is working through plans for youth and adult sail instruction that will entail limited class sizes and only single-handed boats or boats with cohabitating teams, and enhanced cleaning procedures. 

6.    At this point no club social activities are planned.   While I’m still looking forward to the Island Party, I have a feeling it won’t occur until July. 

In summary,  we’ve got docks in place that will allow you to get out on the water.   Please do your best to maintain your social distance during the launching and recovery process.   We have another HSC board meeting scheduled about 10 days from now where we’ll be reassessing our situation.

March 25, 2020

The board of governors met Monday (virtually of course) to discuss our policies regarding the COVID-19 situation pursuant the latest the Ohio Department of Health’s Director’s stay at home order.   While this order asks Ohioans to say at home, it does permit leaving for for essential activities, one of which is “outdoor activity”.   Specifically, the order indicates that individuals may leave their residence for outdoor activity, “…provided the individuals comply with social distancing requirements such as by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, running or biking.  Individuals may go to public parks and open outdoor recreation areas.”   Your board of governors believes sailing is an outdoor activity that is consistent with the intent of this order and we have confirmed with the city that sailing is an acceptable activity.  

So here is an update on HSC operations: 

1.  Docks-in day is cancelled.   

2.  Several dock sections are already in the water which can provide members access to the lake.  These were the dock sections that were left in for frostbiting activities. At this point, there is no plan to put in additional docks.   The remainder of the dock sections and rafts will be put in when the broader restriction is lifted. 

3.  A club safety boat will be parked at the top of the ramp, ready to launch, should someone be at the club and see a boat in need of assistance on the water. 

4.  In addition, other committees, including grounds and house committees, have curtailed their activities until further notice.  

5.  Remember,  if you come out to sail or prepare your boat for season, after you raise your mast, please be sure the side stays need to be tied to a ground cable. Spring storms are more likely to move or tip mast-up boats, and boats that are not tied down can damage the boats parked around them. 

6.  The clubhouse, including the bathrooms, is closed and will remain so until further notice.  The winter locks on clubhouse doors, which had been removed last week, have been put back in place. 

7.  Club racing is postponed till further notice (AP flag up).

8.  High school and collegiate sailing has been cancelled. 

9.  Decisions regarding later social events, including our Open House and the Memorial Day Potluck, will be made at a later date. 

10.  Early season regattas (MC, Thistle, and Flying Scot) will be re-evaluated in three weeks at the next board of governors meeting.   

11.  For those needing to move boats out from non-HSC storage locations, they may be brought to the club and put in the east side of the clubhouse lot until space opens up in the dry sail lot due to docks being launched.   For those wishing to sail, there is one row available in the dry sail lot that has been vacated by the lasers that can be used until you have access to your assigned space.   As mentioned above, remember to tie your boat to the ground cable.

12.  If your boat is currently in the east dry-sail lot and you’re not blocking anyone else in, you should leave your boat there and not move to the west dry-sail lot till dock sections are put in the water.

13.  The club will not be fining members for missed workdays, not raising masts, or moving their boats, unless people fail to move boats once the COVID-19 situation has resolved.
