Celebration of Life and Race Announcement

2 Jul

Please join family and friends at the Celebration of Life gathering for George Roth to be held at LYC Saturday July 6 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. Come share stories, eat lunch, and toast a life well lived. Casual summer attire a must! Questions? Please call Sue (Roth) Bainton at (734) 395-7575 or (231) 869-8641.

And I’m quite certain George would approve that announcement as a proper segue into the following:
Come Hell or High Water Series
Race Results- Saturday 6/30/2019
Good afternoon friends and fellow sailors.
Saturday afternoon saw our largest field of entrants to date, with six boats taking a shot at the 3:00pm start line. The winds were a steady averaging around 7kts for the duration of the race. The field did experience a significant fog that settled across the course shortly after the start.
The heavy fog proved to play a role in the finishing order as two of our boats missed the buoy and retired from the race after recognizing the error.
We were all greeted back at the clubhouse with the very welcome news that power had been restored that afternoon and the beer was “semi-cold”.
Overall a fantastic day on the lake.

Order of finish:
Dolche- Ken & Sharon Wieringa
Free Spirit- Steve & Jessica Clare
Poppy T- Tim & Shelley Tibbits
INXS- Don Cochran
Dragonfly- Gary & Sheryl Ferguson (DNF)
Madeline- Greg Harrison Pentwater Yacht Club (DNF)
I appreciate all who came out and participated.
Special thanks to the crew of Madeline & Dolche who sailed up from Pentwater to join us for the Saturday event. I hope to see more of this cross club participation as the summer progresses.
See you on the water!
Tim Tibbits

Next race is scheduled for 7/3/2019- 6:00pm pier head start. I am also planning another Saturday event for 7/6- Details to be announced.
