From CC on 10/23:

 

Attn: Cold Weather sailors!

 

I am currently in the process of clearing frostbiting at Edgewater YC with the Fleet Captain and Manager. I will let you all know as soon as it is all good to go. The boats are down, but we need to put masts up. Details to follow asap!

Hi -

Previously asked about J29 owner names or contacts. Looking to buy one from east coast, but wanted some insight into set-up, tune and "tricks" to get boat up to speed.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Ethan

Anybody that is not on the EYC frostbite email list should pm me your email so we don't have to copy/paste emails on this thread.

And if you are not on the email list: we are meeting at EYC at 9am this sun. 10/27/13. Members as well as non-members are welcome. $25 cash goes towards fuel/boat parts for the season. This is not a learn to sail program. There is a refundable (as long as you don't damage the boats) deposit, paid via mem. num./ cash/credit...

 

We have had pretty good turn out over the past few years. With a wide verity of participants male, female, young and old.

 

Step up to the plate to see if you've got the stuff to get between the hot shot junior sailors and the finish line.

 

After racing there is beer and food available for purchase in the club.

 

See everyone out there. Have Fun!

Looks like some boats just can't wait to get to the start. Pic from today. It is a long jump from the dock. Rumored that 3 boats and their docks are already in the lake in the vicinity of the start area today.

Lassie was rescued...

http://clevelandsailing.com/2014/05/13/the-windlassie-rescue/

 

No names on boats afloat. All were secured and moved to EWYC. Mrs. Ed, Warrior, Blue Dog, overkill and several others are hanging on. All finger docks from South Island to gasdock are gone. Big yachts north of the gasdock are stacking up against the bulkhead. The island will close tonight at 9. Everyone is asked to stay off island for their own safety.

Were doing the Commodore Perry Race next week at North Cape whats the bugs like, mostly Mosquitoes? No screens for the J 29 we have not needed them around the Islands. We did the Trans Erie a few years back at Gross Isle and got eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Haven't seen any skeeters yet this year but that doesn't mean they can't show up at any moment. We get tons of green bugs/mayflies but once again, not yet making an appearance. Generally don't see them until the Mills and sometimes later.

 

Oh, and welcome to North Cape! You are sticking around for the Mills, aren't you?

88 one-design boats invaded Cleveland Race Week at Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland, Ohio from June 13-15. Eight fleets competed, including 25 J/70s duking out the Great Lakes Championship and 18 Tartan 10s seeking the title of Lake Erie Champion. Both the J/70s and Tartan 10s began their series on Friday, which featured Northwest breezes in the teens and typical Lake Erie waves. Winds started strong again on Saturday morning when all fleets got in on the action, but died off throughout the day. Sunday dawned with light breeze but increased, making for a beautiful day of racing in Cleveland. The Race Committee ran three separate circles and was able to complete up to 11 races on certain courses.
The Fleet winners:
Tartan 10: Team Iball, Scott Irwin, North Cape Yacht Club (17 points, 11 races)
J/22: Mo' Money, Vic Snyder/Kevin Doyle, Youngstown Yacht Club (17 points, 6 races)
J/24: Black & Tan, Steve Hronek, EYC (9 points, 6 races)
J/70: Team Bayview, Paul Hulsey, Bayview Yacht Club (49 points, 10 races)
J/105: it, Jim Sminchak/Doug Moose, LYC (9 points, 6 races)
Dragon: The Schmucks, Mike Mahar, Edgewater Yacht Club (17 points, 6 races)
Ensign: Jager, Jim Collins, ECA (16 points, 6 races)
Jet 14: Na Pame, Dave Michos, EYC (12 points, 8 races)
For complete information, visit www.clevelandraceweek.com. Racing continues through next Sunday in RC Sailboats, Women’s, Doublehanded, Juniors and PHRF.

Thought about making the trip to Cleveland to race at CRW next weekend, but unfortunately your NOR cites PHRF-LE.

 

Hell will freeze over before I waste my time at an event that their organization is involved with. The crap they pulled in the Mills race was the final straw. I am astonished that Toledo Yacht Club and the Storm Trysail Club failed to follow RRS, managed the race so poorly, and seemingly had no problems using intentionally backdated documents. Ethical? Corinthian? In the best interest of our sport? You can answer those questions yourself.

 

There ya go Kellner, Gilford, Frazier, Glanville and the rest of team PHRF-LE and their conspiring friends, you finally won. Do you feel satisfied that you succeeded in chasing yet another person away from the sport on "your" lake? How is it going for you? Is participation up? Is membership up?

You know, Curtis, I suspect whatever level of support you may have once realized at your home club has seriously eroded, perhaps even evaporated by virtue of the approach you have chosen. You have repeatedly made your point re your boat and the decisions of those in charge have not gone in your favor. That's the way it goes in life, sometimes you win a battle, sometimes you lose. In this case you have lost and it's well past time for you to move on. Perhaps one reason participation could be down because some have chosen not to play in your pool.

What is the parking situation for CRW tonight regarding the Edgewater Park food truck/live music situation?

Just in case no one from EYC/CRW responds, here is my suggestion: get to EYC early today. Last thurs. the park was jam packed with cars, due to the music in the park etc. the shore way was backed up in both directions due to the massive influx of peeps. As far as I know there is no special parking araingement but I could be wrong, either way get there early. I waited a solid 15-20 min. last week waiting in line on the shore way and that was around 6pm.

I think they have the traffic cop working more effectively now. I got there right at 6pm and even though there was a long line of cars, it was only a couple minutes to get into the club.

So word is that PHRF course RC was a cluster today?

If you're referring to circle 2, combining the fleets was just to get an extra race in. However, I'm not sure why they did the same yesterday since we had plenty of wind.

 

I wouldn't describe their work as a cluster.

Regardless if it was a cluster or not, people are quite eager to judge and point fingers and moan when it's not them running the event themselves... and when the wind flops, dies, and then builds back much later, it's going to be hard for anyone to keep on top of. Thanks for a good regatta.

Not a cluster at all ever on Course 2.Combining the Divisions I felt was appropriate to save time for a possible third race for

all the fleets. JAM simply ran out of time due to the 1400 start time restriction.I give the RC good marks overall and especially for having a appropriate sized line when they did decide to combine divisions for a single start.
