Sailing, Sailing, Sailing:  
Dennis McNeil reports that a friend of his from Bay City is very active in multi hull racing.  The group is using Lake Michigan at  Manistee (July 28-29) and Muskegon (Aug 11-12).  The website is cramsailing.com  If anyone is interested in watching multi hull sailboat races,check it out.
Training opportunity:
LYC is sponsoring a USCG Auxiliary class ” Suddenly in Command” on Sunday, July 8 beginning at Noon.  Cost will be $15 per person and will last a couple of hours. Please respond to this message if you wish to attend or call Gary Ferguson (231 690-3710) for further details. The course overview follows:

The captain becomes incapacitated or falls overboard; you purchase a new boat and step aboard for the first time. You are Suddenly In Command.  This boating safety primer is designed for those not generally at the helm, and will help you to “be prepared” with the basics in case of an emergency.

You will learn about your vessel, including nomenclature and operating principles including starting the engine. Also included are descriptions of what causes boating mishaps and how to minimize them, basic boat handling and what equipment should be on board.

Literature contains many horror stories about a passenger, who does not know how to start the engine or operate the radio, watching in horror as a strong wind blows the boat away faster than a captain who has fallen overboard can swim.

Misfortune occurs in seconds, and you have the rest of your life to be grateful that you knew what to do because you were prepared.
