There appears to be quite a few of us here at SA and we were starting to clog up the where to eat thread, so decided to start this one.

Muskegon Yacht Club

Wednesday we sail PHRF, but their is a new interest in a Melges 24 One- Design. We have six boats at this time with at least 4 more being talked about seriously.

Tuesday Night is Laser/JY 15s

Then the weekend series racing in the spring and fall.

We are also organizing some sunday morning races in the JY's on the off weekends.

Come check us out sometime, we probably have the most competitive PHRF racing on wednesday nights that you will find on the West Michigan Lakeshore.

Youre at SLYC so then you know my scow buddies andy mo, justin and eggy etc...

Live on reeds lake in GR so that's where I sail now, lots of MC Scow and Laser sailing lately, fousing on Laser next year and the DN is ready to go for the winter.

Before that, Mumm 30 (asylum), N/M36 (lunatic fringe) , N/M 50 (Insatiable) and a old IOR N/M 36 (also lunatic fringe) ALL based out of Muskegon YC but with a fair amount of travel. Esp. the Mumm, lots of travel w/ that... huge fun...

3 kids under 6 = dinghy sailing at home for a couple years... but occasionally hop rides on my buddies Farr 395 called Ragged Edge.

Live out near Cannonsburg Ski Area. Only in W. Mich last 2 summers. Most of my sailing has been up north--Charlevoix and Harbor Springs for the last 20 years. Also a few seasons in Chicago right out of school. Used to have a 5-6 race per week habit in college (many years ago). Lately restricted to 3-4 weekend regattas each year due to 2 children under 5 and wife who likes to sail but not race.

Hopefully doing Wed Night PHRF in Muskegon this summer then looking to jump into ownership in 2006.

Anytime anyones up for a beer (my other passion), give me a shout.

Have you sailed with Stu on Ragged?

BSmith - Is MYC going to have a seperate division for M24's this year? I have not raced there on Wednesdays yet, but have raced in the Fall and UK series. Great competition!!!

1Sailor, do you live on the north side of Reeds Lk? and watch out for that Miller guy, I hear he is trouble.

Sail out of Holland on a boat that has lead in it's butt.

I think that I can hit 1 sailor from my house with a 3 wood if he is who I think he is.

love the J35 racing, but I feel bad we lost Ragtime now it is down to 3 J35's that can have fun. Maybe we will pick up some more with the J35 Nationals in Muskegon this summer. Heard mention of some Local tallent looking into chartering a J35 for the NA's that could be a hoot.

Anyone got any gossip on lead belly boats leaving / arriving ???

OK, personal brews are on the top of the list. My son-in-laws buddies make some of the best. Then micro brews, brew pubs, localized small brewing operations. When we finally get down the line to commercially brewed stuff...........

Looper, K'zoo is in. Pretty much anything west of US 23 is considered WM.

Live in Grandville, race a J/35 in Muskegon, although kids, wife, etc. starting to take yet another hobby. Trying to decide if I should give the J/35 one more year or start racing the VSK3 that I picked up over xmas.

Maybe each J/35 crew should split in two and get a couple Melges to race, that would increase the numbers in a hurry and long delivery's will be via the road.

Fairly new to SA, read it all the time, finally noticed some locals and joined. Good to see beer is still flowing, that is not a hobby I'm ready to give up.

Sailed with Doc on Hoqua for the J35 Lake MIchigan and had a riot. Never even set foot on a J35 before that. Some times it pays to answer the phone.

Speaking of drinking, who says the two drink lunch is dead!!!!!!!!!!

In the off season, what about gathering at a "suitable" location" to keep "fit" for Wednesday nites?

For the Holland crowd, Wednesday nites at Butches might generate a few interesting jpegs....

I thought P-frog said you were meeting Friday nites @ Butch's. And by the way, this Friday just might work out for me at Butch's.

Roger, I gotta talk to you anyway about that OD regatta I hope you are inheireting.

Close but he would need about 4 shots with a 3 wood. Hell, the way he plays golf, maybe 8 shots. I'm the 2700 block of Cascade and his younger bro. TVT

i sail for WMU, as does my roommate RP. We're actually right coast MI sailors during the 'normal' sailing season, however from september to march my fat ass jumps in a FJ or a 420 every once and a while.

Looper. Have you given up your closet east midcoast status?? Are you now officially a west midcoast dude?? Been doing any bad things with those flags lately?????

Uncle Fester, I believe the flag is fine, it's still on my wall as my roommate so eloquently posted. Rumor has it the rightful owner is going to let us keep it... good times... good times...

Also, i wouldn't trade sailing on beautiful lake erie for the world. I haven't forgotten my roots, and i plan on returning for another wonderful sailing season. any word on our area picking up IRC? I'd love to know what the Catalina 27 rates...

Well, the water does not have salt in it unless you spill the margarita. The closest islands are about 150 NM north and the boats tend to be leadmines and you will need to go to Southhaven ? or Holland to race.

Other than that, it is a nice area.

I'm a Kzoo'er and sail out of South Haven. Sounds like we have a pretty sizeable group down here as well. I think we need to organize an outing or two (or several) at Bells.

Pehrst, I relocated to Kzoo due to work and it's actually not too bad. It takes me 50 minutes to get from my house to the marina in SH. Not as good as the old 5 min commute, but you take what you can get.

Which J35 do race on? I raced in the Lake Michigan Championship last year, so it's likely that we met. Who's thinking of chartering a J35 for NAs?

There appears to be quite a few of us here at SA and we were starting to clog up the where to eat thread, so decided to start this one.

I'm in grand rapids, you? What do you sail ?

I am in Spring Lake. I am dating 3 boats on a regular basis and a couple of weekend mistresses. You?

Youre at SLYC so then you know my scow buddies andy mo, justin and eggy etc...

Live on reeds lake in GR so that's where I sail now, lots of MC Scow and Laser sailing lately, fousing on Laser next year and the DN is ready to go for the winter.

Before that, Mumm 30 (asylum), N/M36 (lunatic fringe) , N/M 50 (Insatiable) and a old IOR N/M 36 (also lunatic fringe) ALL based out of Muskegon YC but with a fair amount of travel. Esp. the Mumm, lots of travel w/ that... huge fun...

3 kids under 6 = dinghy sailing at home for a couple years... but occasionally hop rides on my buddies Farr 395 called Ragged Edge.

I'm a Kzoo'er and sail out of South Haven. Sounds like we have a pretty sizeable group down here as well. I think we need to organize an outing or two (or several) at Bells.

Giddy Up! I'm down and so is Looper! You say when and we'll be at Bells.

Pehrst, I relocated to Kzoo due to work and it's actually not too bad. It takes me 50 minutes to get from my house to the marina in SH. Not as good as the old 5 min commute, but you take what you can get.

I did a tour in K-zoo, at the prestigous Western Michigan University. I had to punch out though. It was lacking in certain areas. A lot of my friends get thrown out after the first semester.

BSmith - Is MYC going to have a seperate division for M24's this year? I have not raced there on Wednesdays yet, but have raced in the Fall and UK series. Great competition!!!

We will have a seperate division if we can get a couple more boats. I think 8 will have to be the magic number. I know a lot of the guys in PHRF 2 are ready to see the Melges play their own game. It will be fun either way. If a couple more guys commit we will have our own start, not sure what spot in the order it will come in though.

Looper-
Whaddya sail in kazoo?
I'm THere too.

i sail for WMU, as does my roommate RP. We're actually right coast MI sailors during the 'normal' sailing season, however from september to march my fat ass jumps in a FJ or a 420 every once and a while.

Looper. Have you given up your closet east midcoast status?? Are you now officially a west midcoast dude?? Been doing any bad things with those flags lately?????

Uncle Fester, I believe the flag is fine, it's still on my wall as my roommate so eloquently posted. Rumor has it the rightful owner is going to let us keep it... good times... good times...

Also, i wouldn't trade sailing on beautiful lake erie for the world. I haven't forgotten my roots, and i plan on returning for another wonderful sailing season. any word on our area picking up IRC? I'd love to know what the Catalina 27 rates...

Ah Ha!! So you confess, you are a east mid-coast dude at heart!! I am working on being a part-time west mid-coast guy. The wife is trying to make me buy a cottage on the west side of the state. She keeps muttering something about the hundreds of thousands of dollars I've spent on &*(^%$ sailboat racing. As far as IRC on Lake Erie?? probably not this year. I am working on my IRC rating for the Mack. It feels like the old MORC days in a way, we are going to weigh boats again. Kinda cool!!
Take care of them flags boys, You have been doing them justice so far!!

Looper, K'zoo is in. Pretty much anything west of US 23 is considered WM.

West of US23 is west Michigan??????

Well, I live east of US23 (Plymouth) but race west of US23 (Ann Arbor) and I don't think I am anything close to a west michigan sailor.....

If I ever get back on my big boat ride on Lk. St Stupid (Victrix), I'll have to look you guys up when we make it up to Harbor Springs (or either of the Macs).

Hroth

Kashi? What the hell is that.....

On the GR thing - yes, we have to drive through.

But, I'm thinking that I need to only associate with those who know how to spell 'commitment'......

So, it's an easy question, really.... are we 'in' or are we 'out' of the 'you-know-what-race'......

You do know, it's not always about the best gear, but rather the friendships that were formed on the previous 'you-know-what-race' that really counts.

Do you want to win, or watch someone else win... that may be the best question.

C'mon giddy'up - need answer so I can find new person, if need-be. Kurt is asking, and I'm always known for prior proper planning.... like to nail down the crew well in advance.

Answer?

There appears to be quite a few of us here at SA and we were starting to clog up the where to eat thread, so decided to start this one.

I'm in grand rapids, you? What do you sail ?

I am in Spring Lake. I am dating 3 boats on a regular basis and a couple of weekend mistresses. You?

Youre at SLYC so then you know my scow buddies andy mo, justin and eggy etc...

Live on reeds lake in GR so that's where I sail now, lots of MC Scow and Laser sailing lately, fousing on Laser next year and the DN is ready to go for the winter.

Before that, Mumm 30 (asylum), N/M36 (lunatic fringe) , N/M 50 (Insatiable) and a old IOR N/M 36 (also lunatic fringe) ALL based out of Muskegon YC but with a fair amount of travel. Esp. the Mumm, lots of travel w/ that... huge fun...

3 kids under 6 = dinghy sailing at home for a couple years... but occasionally hop rides on my buddies Farr 395 called Ragged Edge.

Eric, is that you?

Yes, it is me (eric w) indeed.

Who are you ?

From The Helm, hope you can make it. Think we can convince that J30 guy to show? Will he be at his Kzoo office that day?

Red hats are earned... not given. ;)

I earned my Annapolis NOOD hat by running over three 7-year olds during the award ceremony hat toss. A few too many MG rum things that day.

Just kidding--about the 7 year olds, not the too many rum things.

See you all on the 17th.

Hroth, I think you're going to be waiting for a long time for us to show - we're going on the 13th!

East sider here, ya know I went to WMU also so I know many west coasters.  It is funny because no one in here uses names... but I think I know most of you.  So if you think you know me I'll just say something that will confirm it.
"I bent my wookie"

it's always great to hear from alumni, especially when they come back regatta weekend...

can i crew on the express this summer?

Shorthanded,

How you doing on crew this year? I race on the boat that you "earned" your red hat on, and then you preceded to kick our butt the rest of the season.

You mentioned some shirts that were coming our way.

have to get out with you guys one of these days.

Is this TP or BT? Don't forget my humbling experience during the Lake Michigan Championship. I recall seeing a lot of your transom.

As far as crew goes, I have a good core for the big regattas and this year should be a lot better for club races.

I forgot about those shirts. I'd better get on it!

I'm a Kzoo'er and sail out of South Haven.  Sounds like we have a pretty sizeable group down here as well.  I think we need to organize an outing or two (or several) at Bells.

Pehrst, I relocated to Kzoo due to work and it's actually not too bad.  It takes me 50 minutes to get from my house to the marina in SH.  Not as good as the old 5 min commute, but you take what you can get.

I did a tour in K-zoo, at the prestigous Western Michigan University. I had to punch out though. It was lacking in certain areas. A lot of my friends get thrown out after the first semester.

Swedge--

How is it evenly remotely possible that you "punched out" of WMU? WMU will give a PhD to a trained monkey if they put in the time (I should know). :P

Also, if you sailed with Dickie at Red Fox last year, I was on the other Bene.

Hroth

I sailed with the great Dickie.

I couldn't take K-zoo. The town just didn't do it for me. Could have been when my buddy cleaned and bled out a deer while it was hanging in front of our dorms. It could have been when I went to the liquor store and they asked me for my ID. I don't know, but K-Zoo just didn't do it for me. I left Western with 3.8 GPA, it was the easiest school I ever went to since middle school. I am not joking. I spent the 3.8 semester drunk off my ass. When I took my Pysch final I had to cover one eye becuase the bubbles I was supposed to fill in kept on swirling around. Still got an A on it. The class that fucked up my 4.0 was BOWLING. BOWLING!!!!! My average went dow through out the semester, could have been the booze.

Do you remeber the girls on the J-22? DAMN!!!! They had great bodies. Once you got closer to them though.... Well as far as the pulchratude (NORM) went there, they were A-Team. Anyway if you run into them, tell them I will support the kids.

Swedge--

I got tired of Kazoo too, which is why I live in GR. I can understand how a bloody deer would drive you away.

As far as the J-22 girls go, I do remember them--they spent the night on the Bene I was on as they had no other place to sleep apparently. I was safely tucked away in my hotel, but I understand they were up late as some of the other crew were on the boat. They even left their pillows on the boat for us to sniff the next day (just kidding--about the sniffing, not the pillows).
