    Commodores Comments September is the beginning of the end of summer, with

    the start of school and summer schedules winding

    down. Unfortunately our boating season is also soon

    coming to a close. We just spent a great weekend racing

    to Manitowoc for the annual club Rendezvous. This is a

    great annual tradition that invites members and boaters

    to gather for a summer party.

    Years ago when the fleet was more cruising oriented,

    many boats would head out together to spend vacation

    time on the water. The rendezvous spot was always chosen carefully and

    it would change from year to year. Some past locations included

    Kewaunee, Marinette, and Peninsula State Park in Door County. These

    parties would give the chance for members to drive and meet those who

    were traveling by boat. In more recent years, the party has been planned

    around the annual race to Manitowoc. It still offers a great chance to re-

    lax with old friends and meet some new ones.

    This month, I would like to share a little about the racing experience

    itself. Boats headed out on Saturday, 18 August to find strong winds and

    rolling waves. We all spend time and energy guessing what the wind and

    weather will do. Do we race along the shore? Do we go way out? All

    boats have these choices and everyone does it differently. In the long run,

    the wind stayed steady and the seas laid down. It made for a pretty nice

    run to Manitowoc, even though we could not fly our kites. It was a long

    race this year. Five hours for us. That is longer than most races to Mani-

    towoc. However, nothing like my race this year to Mackinac Island,

    which took 61 hours!

    Thank you to Dawn Vertz for organizing this years party. Everyone

    enjoyed pizza and other great food on the upper deck of the Manitowoc

    Marina. Thank you to the crew of SlipKnot for providing the beer. Great

    fun was had by all! Consider joining the party next year; all are welcome.

    On Sunday, when we set out to race home, the race didnt look too

    promising. There was very little wind at the start and some boats did not

    even put up their sails. The wind slowly filled in, the lighter boats took

    off, and all enjoyed a steady breeze to bring us back to our home port.

    The cruisers stopped to swim in the beautiful water off Whistling

    Straights. The racers enjoyed flat seas and sunshine. These are the days

    we will remember in the dead of winter. I am proud of our clubs racing

    fleet and the camaraderie that we enjoy. Thank you Dave Bronson for

    heading up our racing program and all you do!

    If you attend only one meeting a year, this is it. Your club will elect

    new leadership this coming month. Please come to the monthly member-

    ship meeting to vote for the future leaders of your club.

    Please also remember to get your hours in by the end of September if

    you signed up for Dues Work Off this year.

    See you at our club!

    ~Commodore Mike
