Tall ships make a grand entry
- Editor H2ONotes [ 7/29/2013 - 07:08 ] #
There’s something about those tall ships. They make every kid yell
“cool” and adults click away with cameras, their mouths agape.
Dorothy Church of Grand Rapids may have worded it best as she sat on
the north pier nearly under the Aerial Lift Bridge just after the
Peacemaker made a dramatic pass.
“I’m always amazed at what it
must have been like,” Church said. “It makes me nostalgic, even though I
wasn’t around 200 years ago.” more...

the year prior, sailing participation is growing at this year’s Boating

will features boats from 6ft to more than 35 ft. in length, including

very popular in England and the popularity is spreading here in the
states again.” NP Boats is bringing to the Festival four newly designed
Hartley boats including a very popular redesigned Wayfarer. “The
advantages of small boat sailing means you don’t have to scramble to

Help Restore Waugoshance Lighthouse!
- Editor H2ONotes [ 8/29/2012 - 12:03 ] #The Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society has the opportunity to obtain a 2 for 1 match from the Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program in order to fund the completion of a Historic Structure Report. We need to submit this report to several federal entities before any renovation
work can begin on the lighthouse. If we raise $10,000, the State
program will double our amount and give us $20,000! The total $30,000,
funded by our Indiegogo supporters (you!) and the State, will allow us
to pay for the report and then begin renovation on this historic Lake
Michigan lighthouse. Please join us in helping to restore Waugoshance! more

have faced many challenges on this journey. Some have challenged us
physically. Some have challenged us mentally. Some have challenged our
marriage. Some have challenged our will and determination. With hard
work, strong focus and the support of our friends, family and community,
we have made it through. And with one week until we depart for
Wisconsin for our swim, we are faced with yet another challenge.
As of this morning, our boats and boat captains, from the Ludington Yacht Club, have backed out of our adventure for personal reasons. This means we now have NO escort boats to help us get across the lake.
So, we are in desperate need of at least one boat, 35+ feet or longer
(sail or power) to guide us across the lake or our swim will be
cancelled. If anyone has any contacts, please contact us directly as
soon as possible as our leave date for Wisconsin is still August 12th.

Chicago In-Water Boat Show
- Editor H2ONotes [ 6/8/2012 - 06:19 ] #
When Chicago didn’t land the 2016 Olympics, residents got a nice
perk: a needed recreational-boating harbor. Plans for a South Side site
were part of the 2016 bid, and when the city lost out on the Games,
Chicago Park District forged ahead, completing the 31st Street Harbor in
early May. According to the Park District, the $103 million project was
funded entirely by boater fees.
The new addition made a dent in the harbor system’s lengthy waiting
list, situating 300 boats with room for more. According to Sarah Ryser,
National Marine Manufacturers Association’s assistant director of
communications, another item on the city’s wish list was an in-water
boat show. Now that there’s an ideal place for it—with a large launch
ramp and spare slips—the first Progressive Insurance Chicago In-Water
Boat Show casts off on Thursday 7. more...
