By Pat McGuinnis, Fleet Captain, Lightning Fleet #79
Perhaps you've seen a few Lightnings lurking around the dry sail storage area. We have brought the old Lightning fleet #79 back from Davey Jones' locker, and it's officially a fleet again at SSYC. Pat McGuinnis, Andy Hopkins and Eric Jones have teamed up to bring back the fleet, and we're in the ILCA's books.
We will host an informational meeting at SSYC on Wednesday October 15 at 7PM to discuss ideas for racing Lightnings at SSYC next summer. Early thoughts are around some short course racing on a weeknight.
Please stop by if interested, or if you just want to see the old fleet get going again.
If you are interested in sailing, and more specifically racing, there are ample opportunities to join one of our racing fleets, or to crew on one of the boats in those fleets. The women's fleet races on Mondays, small boats race on Tuesdays. Big boats race on Wednesdays and Saturdays. And the double handed fleet races on Fridays.
You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here. And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
SSYC offers sailing lessons and a year-round program for children ages 8 - 18. We offer a six-week series of lessons in Opti's, 420's and Lasers. Our juniors attend a number of regattas throughout the summer, and host one of thelargest regattas on Lake Michigan, the Kaszube Cup.
Click here to learn more about the Junior program, and here to find out more about the Kaszube Cup regatta.
The restaurant is open every Friday for lunch and dinner.
The Entertainment Committee hosts various parties, including:
St. Patrick's Day
Review of the Fleet
Change of Watch
New Year's Eve
and many other, less formal, events throughout the year.
