Tall ships make a grand entry

  #

There’s something about those tall ships. They make every kid yell “cool” and adults click away with cameras, their mouths agape.

But 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...

Mills Race a salute to Lake Erie history

  #

Mills Trophy Race chairman Ron Soka points out the location of  the Bicentennial Buoy marking the site of Commodore Perry's victory over the British in the Battle of Lake Erie. The buoy will mark part of the course. In keeping with the tradition established during the past century, a colorful flotilla of vessels and their sailors will honor the history of the Mills Trophy Race this week, then set sail to write the next chapter.

The 90th running of the Mills takes place on Friday, with a staggered start from near the Toledo Harbor Light. The first boats are expected to reach the finish line near Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

As the different classes of boats cover the various marked courses out on the open lake, all of them will pass over the exact location of the Battle of Lake Erie, where Oliver Hazard Perry led the U.S. Navy to victory against the British 200 years ago.   more...

  #

Livonia, Mich., September 5, 2012 – With more exhibitors and more sailboats than the year prior, sailing participation is growing at this year’s Boating & Outdoor Festival and in the entire Great Lakes region as well.

At this year’s Boating & Outdoor Festival, a special sailing section will features boats from 6ft to more than 35 ft. in length, including Hartley Boats, Sunfish, Laser, Hobie Cat, Catalina, Hunter, J-Boats and more.  Also included in the sailing section will be model sailboat regattas, seminars, sailing schools, and new product introductions.

“Small boat sailing is coming back,” said NP Boats Nick Seraphinoff.  “It is 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 find a crew.  Your family is your crew,” said Seraphinoff.  more

Help Restore Waugoshance Lighthouse!

  #
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

through the blue

  #
Raising awareness of postpartum depression by becoming the first married couple to complete a 50 mile ultra-marathon swim across Lake Michigan this summer! August 15, 2012. Help us spread the word.

We 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.

 Please email teamtow@throughtheblue.org or call 616-951-4882.  more...

Chicago In-Water Boat Show

  #

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...

Lake St. Clair fest teaches students importance of preserving natural resources

  #

Clinton Township — The butterscotch-colored corn snake patiently allowed students to stroke its back as the presenter held it coiled around her arm.

Some students snapped pictures of "Zeus," while others giggled nervously.

"It's really cool and kind of gross at the same time," said Elizabeth Foster, 11, a fifth-grader at Westwood Elementary School in the Warren Woods Public School District.

Elizabeth was one of about 1,600 Macomb County fourth- and fifth-grade students who gathered Tuesday at Macomb Community College to explore concepts of water conservation, preservation and safety at the fifth annual Lake St. Clair Water Festival. The event's goal was to instill an understanding of stewardship of the earth's water and its impact on all living creatures.  more...
