Bump. Looks like a small fleet for the fall series. :(

Did Greever get a ride?


No, but I have been able to work on my boat which is cool.

I have to fly back to Phoenix on Sunday to finish selling the house, but if anyone needs crew between now and then let me know. (even just a daysail would be cool) Beers on me!

It's supposed to be warm in Muskegon tomorrow so the Wifey and I are going for a row in the dinghy I built.

Gonna be a lllooooooonnnnggg Winter.......

No delay. Board is simply working to be properly prepared for all possible circumstances. Much of the new system is already welded together and being assembled as we speak.

Great shot of them! I don't know how to get in contact with Marc, but he is down in Holland area. You can probably find his info from the Tripp Cup files, or even Clipper Cup. I do know that he makes some really incredible home brewed beer. Posted Image

Glad to hear it boys!! 12-15kts today, patched 2 holes in our main, and re-stitched a batten pocket. Had one fly out, just not as scary as the last AWOL batten that almost killed the skipper!! :)

Good News for the Great Lakes

Hi, I thought you might appreciate this: http://www.miseagrant.umich.edu/cmp/index.html. I hope you'll forward it to your crew, etc. Please pass it on or post it to your Facebook page (if you have one).
UM-based Michigan Sea Grant awarded $1.5 M to help restore Great Lakes
Posted ImageANN ARBOR, Mich.—University of Michigan-based Michigan Sea Grant has been awarded more than $1.5 million from the federal government to lead two Great Lakes restoration projects that will restore native fish habitat and help clean up marinas across the region.

Michigan Sea Grant, a collaboration between U-M and Michigan State University, will also assist on five federally funded projects focused on issues including endangered fish, beach contamination, sound boating practices and marina operations, and water pollution.

The Environmental Protection Agency grants are part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, a $475 million federal commitment to improve environmental quality in the Great Lakes region. Michigan Sea Grant's work, along with hundreds of other projects in Michigan and the region, will help meet key restoration priorities identified by EPA.

"For years, we've used the Great Lakes as dumping grounds—letting pollution from farm fields, sewers and factories flow into the lakes, overharvesting fish, and building on valuable wetlands," said Jim Diana, a U-M professor of fisheries and director of Michigan Sea Grant, which is based at the U-M School of Natural Resources and Environment.

"The country has benefited from industrial production in this region, but our environment has suffered," Diana said. "This initiative is a major turning point for the Great Lakes. We now have some significant funding which enables us to tackle these issues in a comprehensive, coordinated way."

The two Michigan Sea Grant-led projects are:

• "Restoring Native Fish Habitat in the St. Clair River" ($1.04 million over two years). New underwater reefs will be constructed to encourage reproduction of native fish such as lake whitefish, walleye and lake sturgeon. Studies before and after construction will allow biologists to evaluate the impact of the work and improve future habitat restoration efforts.

"We've been planning for this project for over four years," said Jennifer Read, Michigan Sea Grant assistant director and the project's principal investigator.

"Our team is building on experience with similar projects in the Detroit River," she said. "This project is exciting because it is the first of its kind in the St. Clair River system and could potentially have a huge impact on important sport, heritage and endangered species such as walleye, lake whitefish and lake sturgeon."

• "Green Marina Education and Outreach" ($478,262 over three years). The project will support and improve existing Clean Marina programs in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, focusing on reducing pollution from boating and marina activities. Funding will be used to help increase participation and educational efforts that lead to Clean Marina certification.

To become certified, Clean Marinas must complete a training course, perform a self-evaluation and address both mandatory and recommended best practices. About 100 marinas in the Great Lakes region have made the commitment to voluntarily implement best practices.

The new funding will assist in the development of uniform Clean Marina certification standards that can be applied to marinas throughout the region. The project will also provide support to enable marinas to complete certification. In addition, some of the funding will be used to improve existing training tools, like the Web-based Clean Marina Classroom.

Diana is the project's principal investigator. Elizabeth LaPorte, Michigan Sea Grant's director of communications and education services, is co-principal investigator. Extension Program Leader Chuck Pistis will act as manager of quality assurance on the project.

"Since the beginning of the Michigan Clean Marina Program in 2005, we've helped more than 35 marinas become certified and have learned a lot about the needs of marina operators," LaPorte said. "Now we have the opportunity to share these lessons with our partner states, magnifying our impact in the Great Lakes region."

In addition to the marina and reef-building projects, Michigan Sea Grant is collaborating on five Great Lakes Restoration Initiative projects led by other institutions. A portion of these grants will support the work of Michigan Sea Grant extension educators:

• "Outreach to reduce the spread of aquatic invasive species," Dan O'Keefe, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

• "Expanding vessel-based education programs," Steve Stewart, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

• "Controlling Phragmites along Lake St. Clair," Mary Bohling, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

• "Beach information communication system," Sonia Joseph Joshi, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

• "Laser technology for tracking beach contaminants," Sonia Joseph Joshi, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

Michigan Sea Grant helps foster economic growth and protect Michigan's coastal Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach. A collaborative effort of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, Michigan Sea Grant is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-National Sea Grant network of more than 30 university-based programs.

U-M Sustainability fosters a more sustainable world through collaborations across campus and beyond aimed at educating students, generating new knowledge, and minimizing our environmental footprint. Learn more at sustainability.umich.edu

Hroth

Out of curiosity, I did a sort of "dry run" of what is likely to reult according to the process by which the dock committee is going to assign slips - and the worst that can happen is that some people will be in the next slip size up from where their boat could fit, which is not much of a jump (maybe 2-4 ft) - and not wildly out of line given the club's goal of making the marina much more accommodating of the larger boats most folks are buying (the long term trend we have been seeing). Truth is, we've been having a hard time filling the plethora of small (<27ft) slips in the old layout - and we've been turning away people with boats larger than 27ft. And if you look at other marinas, most don't offer the range of sizes this new plan still offers. In the case of other marinas, if ya want in ya gotta pay for a pretty big slip regardless of how big your boat is. Also, keep in mind that the new configuration has 10+ more slips than the old layout. Many of those "big" slips are gonna be filled by boats that have never been able to dock at MYC until now - and who have wanted for a long time to be able to slip there. The whole process and likely outcome seem very well thought out to me - and very much a plan that will serve us well in the long term... including how it is going to much better serve the dry-sail in/out process (no more M24 traffic jams! Yay!). About the only down side I see is the loss of a little of the lawn, which is a small price to pay for what the new docks are gonna provide us.

The dry sail area where the M24s currently sit is going to expand further into the lawn to create the additional parking required for a greater number of slips. Other people can speak better than me about the exact measurements.

The current plan is to remove the center walkway.

That along with the increased drysail area will forever change the Bocce strategy of this once hallowed ground. Now if we could only get the lawn mowed early on Sunday afternoons........
