Tall ships to parade along lakefront

  #

Sandy Ogilvie headed out to his powerboat hoping to see sailing ships from past centuries. Although his boat is among the largest at the East 55th Street Marina, it wilwas dwarfed by ships with decks that stretch more than 100 feet and sails that tower over Lake Erie.

Some of the 17 tall ships, which will set sail, are nearly 100 years old, and others are replicas of ships dating back to Christopher Columbus.   more...

New group steps forth in bid to save river race

  #

In 1904, the first unlimited hydroplane race on the Detroit River was won by C. C. Riotte in a boat called Standard at 23.6 m.p.h. That's about one-tenth the speed that modern jet-powered unlimiteds reach as they whistle down the back straight in front of the Detroit Yacht Club.

But 99 years of Detroit racing history will go down the drain this summer unless local Chrysler-Jeep dealers and former Detroit unlimited driver Tom D'Eath can pull off an 11th-hour effort to keep the Gold Cup race afloat. They need about $200,000 to do it.   more...

Have fun, but play it safe as summer season arrives

  #

Gull Island from the air. A peaceful getaway during the week will look quite different on June 27 when the first JobbieNooner party of the summer will take place. Seaway Island, the Canadian Indian Reservation is in the background.

Sunday will be the first full day of summer and it's about time the weather cooperated. The water temperatures are chilly for swimming, but are climbing now that the warmer weather is here.

The photo accompanying this column was taken last Monday at a serene Gull Island. On June 27, the scene will be quite different. There will be thousands of boaters and guests there for the first summer party called JobbieNooner.

Any time there are this many boats anchored or beached in a relatively small area, there is the possibility of problems. In years past things have gone quite well overall, and we hope that it's because each skipper makes sure everyone on his/her boat is safe.   more...
