How can you help?
We need volunteers with power boats to serve as committee boat. We will also need 4 or 5 volunteers to help run the race. Don’t worry, the instructions are relatively simple an anyone can do this. We may want to put a Ludington Daily News photographer on your boat.
We will need a power boat to set the marks on Saturday morning. We have approximate GPS settings for the marks and will supply race committee volunteers with gps to give direction. This will not take more than 1 -2 hours at most.
We will need a 3 or 4 volunteers to clean up on Sunday morning after the event.
Want to Sail?  
If you’d like to ride along or volunteer to be on the committee boat? Please contact Dale Fitch and we’ll try to match you up with a boat, no experience necessary.
We are a volunteer club and if you can help with any of the above, please contact Dale Fitch, race chair at 231-425-0305 or email Dale@LetsGoSail.com. You may also see me at Tuesday’s regular monthly meeting on Sept. 5, 2017 at LYC.
