What gives with the new CYC 'cruise' to Racine on the same night as Queens Cup and Area 3 fake Michigan City Race? Seriously?



Super Anarchist
Who is going to choose the cruise over the race if they are already a racer?

Were their cruisers that did the races?

Why does it matter?

Who shot JR?

It's a good night navigation race, excellent opportunity. We are doing it. There is a competing 'event' it seems. Don't know why. I hear it is a pita entering on the Area 3 website.


spring fever

When has the A3 website not been a PITA?

On the other hand, Goose Island COLORS Regatta uses Yachtscoring and it's very easy to register for racing next weekend!

Here's a look at the fun:

Friday- Line Honors Registration Party with FREE pour of Goose Island & Dry Creek on the Upper Deck

Saturday- 2 Racing Circles followed by FREE Fajita Bar, Goose Island & Dry Creek + Live Music on the Aft Deck

Sunday- 2 Racing Circles followed by Skyway Yacht Works Awards Party with FREE Goose Island & Dry Creek on the Aft Deck

See you on the water!



I heard that Jon McDonald from Magic Slim & the Teardrops

is performing Saturday (tomorrow) night at CCYC - Montrose

Can anyone confirm?

As long as you don't actually go in to Michigan City, how could you be upset...

Was anyone disappointed with the race to Michigan City last year?
That might be a valid point if you weren't going to War kegan for an overnight...

and blubs, I don't remember you complaining when the locals found you a boat to sleep on when your own boat was full of slappers....

Try the Tri State again this year, you might be surprised...

WTF - AllYaAll play kinda Rough ...Eh

Jones was the owner of the Factory Chicago, a gentlemen's club on the Far South Side.

A tweet from the Factory Chicago read: "God called his soldier home, R.I.P. Charles Jones."

As tragic as it is, especially with the number of kids that are killing kids, when you look at the per capita, it's not even in the top ten. Doesn't make it any better but overall, the city is a pretty nice and safe place to live most of the time. Just like any major metropolis, there are areas you just do not go.
