You need to check out Carlyle Sailing Association if you haven't yet, about 2 hours east of you. Like everywhere the participation is down, even a lot of the one design dinghys are racing handicap. There are some world class Lighnting sailors. Racing just about every weekend. Early summer/late spring we have a big charity regatta that benefits Veterans and The Whale of a Sail in October. Really nice facility,great people, and pretty good sailing.
