    Sounds like the seabreeze won offshore...

    Is that the head tacked on the end of the pole?!

    I watched the start. Was interesting because there was an onshore breeze with some boats sailing in it on Port, then a convergence zone, and beyond that a seabreeze where the boats were sailing on starboard. Starting line was setup ~1mile off of Belmont so everyone started on Port in the onshore breeze then the lucky ones at the boat end of the line that soaked out onto the lake were able to transition to the seabreeze. The guys in the middle were dead, the guys inshore were trapped. Be the time the last start happened boats up the course looked like they were all into jibs (jib reaching or beating?). Curious to hear from someone who did the race, how the above played out for the remaining miles of the race...

    The Yacht Club - Do you get value from your dues?

    Looking at the proximity of all of those clubs from the Google Map in the article it looks like they are ripe for consolation. Chicago only has 10 clubs, much larger population, and still has membership base issues... https://www.chicagoharbors.info/lifestyle/things-to-do/yacht-clubs

    The Yacht Club - Do you get value from your dues?

    Looks like Sears is closing for good based on the MSNBC report today. Yacht Clubs next? Financially there has to be a breaking point where they can no longer keep the doors open with a aging membership base...

    Let's get technical. Non for Profits, but they still need to run like a business to cover costs if they want to exist...

    Haha on the Mimsy reference! General question, I don't no much (anything) about the topic...
