For Winning Crew, Friendship Comes First

  #
When the racing finished on Sunday, Doug Scheibner didn't think his Friendship team had won the Tartan Ten class—though he knew the points were close between his boat, Steve Sackett's Cracker, Todd Tigges' Hot Ticket, and Michael Eckstein's Demon Rum. I was among the crew on Demon Rum, motoring back to Bayview YC, when Scheibner phoned to congratulate us on what he assumed was our victory. more...

Skill Acquisition & Falling Off a Windsurfer

  #
skill acquisition principles applied to windsurfingMost of my research for this article involved me spending a lot of the summer falling off a windsurfer. My goal was to teach myself a new skill - how to windsurf. It is quite rare as adults we take on the challenge of a mastering a new skill from scratch. When was the last time you learnt a skill from scratch? Sometimes we tend to avoid it due to the fear of looking silly or the time it would take to learn. more...

North Cape Yacht Club's April issue of the Bullhorn
YACHTING ACTIVITIES by Kent Gardam

BAY WEEK:
If you are like me, over the years you have gradually become less than enamored with the Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA) Bay Week Regatta at Put-in-Bay, OH. A reasonable group of North Cape boats have continued to do the Saturday Deepwater Race but then headed home on Sunday, leaving only a small core of competitors that have continued to support the Monday to Wednesday Bay Week Regatta. more

Regata del Sol al Sol - St. Petersburg, FL to Isla Mujeres, Mexico - "Race of the sun to the sun"

  #
The race started with very little wind. The race committee has a rule that is really cool so that the race is not delayed.  If there is no wind the committee boat will fly the postponement flag and leads the entire fleet down the course until the wind fills in. We were the second start but passed the entire group of boats by the bay bridge. We were able to see the yacht Second Wind by the first evening but after that we did not see any of the fleet.  more...

Mackinac Memories David Bannister, 'Respite'

  #
We could see it coming on our on-board satellite weather system, and on the water. On the chartplotter in front of me at the helm, it was a fast approaching blob of crimson and yellow, fringed with narrow bands of green and punctuated with symbols for thunderstorms and lightning strikes. As it has been on the Great Lakes for mariners dating back to the natives and earliest European explorers, the signs were there on the water as well. A storm was coming. more
