Windquest is first to finish in racing fleet!
- Editor H2ONotes [ 7/15/2013 - 07:16 ] #Congratulations to Windquest, a Max Z86 owned by Dick and
Doug DeVos, on being first to finish in the racing fleet in the 105th
Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Veuve Clicquot.
Windquest finished late Sunday evening at 21:56 CDT. Doug
DeVos said it seemed like there were two different races in one, with
the first leg benefitting from a good breeze, and the second facing
challenging wind conditions.
"The first part of the race was lots of fun, good breeze, we made
good time and moved along. Then the last bit from just north of the
Manitous on up was very challenging, a lot of light air and really
tough," he said. more...

- Editor H2ONotes [ 5/8/2013 - 08:14 ] #

2013 Cowtown Classic MC Regatta May 4-5 Lake Hoover - Columbus, Ohio
- Editor H2ONotes [ 5/8/2013 - 08:13 ] #Spring has sprung for sure and spring brought some big unstable windy
conditions this year to Lake Hoover just outside Columbus, Ohio.
Thirty-one MC teams made it to this annual fun event on one long, skinny
lake. This lake is a couple of miles long running north and south but
only a couple of hundred yards wide. Like most spots in the upper
Midwest normal winds usually consist of southwest winds or southeast
winds in the spring and summer but not for these two days. more...
Thistle Midwinters East - 2013
- Editor H2ONotes [ 4/4/2013 - 06:33 ] #The annual pilgrimage to St. Pete this year took at twisted road for
myself and my team. Ideally, we like to get to the venue a few days
early to rig, relax, practice, etc. This year, however, I’d have to get
there via Miami and the Etchells Midwinters. This was part of the Jag
Series that Jon McClean, Paul Abdullah and I were involved in all winter
and we wanted to make sure we did great in the last event. Though we
didn’t do ‘great’, I had fun with Jon & Paul and we finished
Organize Your Efforts
- Editor H2ONotes [ 3/29/2013 - 05:36 ] #
Sailing is a complex sport, and
sailing a Laser adds additional physical challenges to the head game any
boat demands. To be successful at a multifaceted activity requires a
strategic plan for continual learning and progressive competency. Keep
your plan simple and the successive steps small.
It is difficult to keep all aspects
of a multipart project in mind. Breaking out the main areas of concern
makes everything more obvious and therefore manageable. List the major
areas where you need to continually gain increased competency and then
set specific goals for moving each one ahead a small step. If you want
to put more attention on one or two, fine. But don’t ignore the others. more...
Rule of Thumb: Distances and Angles on the Horizon
- Editor H2ONotes [ 3/29/2013 - 05:34 ] #
There are plenty of times on boats when a lookout has to relay a
sighting on the horizon to someone else on board. This can be tricky if
the second person can’t focus right where the lookout is pointing.
(Picture a lookout on an aircraft carrier whistling the admiral over:
“Yessir, just put your chin on my shoulder and follow my finger. See
that leeeeetle dark speck over there under the cloud that looks sort of
like a dog under some broccoli?”) more...

It Takes a Special Type to Iceboat
- Editor H2ONotes [ 3/8/2013 - 05:35 ] #ClarkSail reporter Willy Clark recently got his first shot at iceboating
when he followed the New England Ice Yachting Association to Squam
Lake, New Hampshire for the 2013 Doc Fellows regatta. After a day spent
watch the runners go by one thing is clear – it takes a special type to
be an iceboater. Below are some of Willy’s thoughts on the matter.
have seen iceboats race a number of times before, but I never really
thought much about it until my cousin and close sailing buddy Oliver
Moore got hooked into the NEIYA a few winters back. I knew that they
were absurdly fast, and I obviously thought they were extremely cool and
exciting. However I must admit that I never really thought much about
iceboating. This is the way it is for a lot of “soft water” sailors;
they are aware of iceboating and that it’s very special in its own way.
But that is about the extent of it, and after a day spent in and around
the things I think I can explain why – it isn’t really like sailing. more...
