A QUICK INTERLAKES REGATTA REPORT………Even though the Interlakes Regatta is not the 120 boat event it once was, that was one heckuva regatta we put on last weekend.  Much praise and many thanks to all who participated, who volunteered, who opened their homes to sailors and parties, and who helped keep the tradition alive. And the grand finale was getting to race in 35 mph gusts when we all hit the race course expecting 10 mph……..upwind was murderous, but the downwinds were a full blown roller coaster ride. If you’re interested in the results, visit the front page of the CLYC website.

FRIDAY NIGHT SOCIAL………at the Yacht Club this Friday, August 10 (that would be tomorrow).  It starts at 5:30 p.m. This is open house style so come down and bring friends! The grill will be hot. BYOB. Looks like it will be a Top 10 weather evening.

EARLY WARNING……….the last regular season CLYC party is Saturday, August 18, starting about 6:30 p.m. It’s our first time invading the Cooney residence at 1605 North Shore Drive, and the MCs, M17s and Hobies have the honors as far as bringing the hors d’oeuvres.

IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE LAKE………you really should attend the APCL (Association for the Preservation of Clear Lake) annual picnic.  It’s Sunday, August 19, 5:00 p.m. at PM Park. Food is served at 5:30. Speakers will be Rick Cruse, Director of the Iowa Water Center at Iowa State University, Scott Grummer, Iowa DNR Fisheries Biologist, and Jim Sholly, CLEAR Project Coordinator.  Tickets are $12.50 and can be purchased in advance or at the door.  To purchase tickets in advance and/or join the APCL, print and complete the form attached to this newsletter, and mail it in with your check…………..or visit, and you can do the same thing.

FLEET PARTIES………The MCs are at Beasleys’ this Friday, Aug. 10. The E’s are at Price’s this Saturday, Aug. 11.  Details were in last week’s newsletter.

TROPHY PHOTOS……If you haven’t done so yet, your final, final chance to get your trophy photo is this Saturday, Aug. 11, from 6:00-6:30 p.m. at the Yacht Club.

FLASHBACK TO 1965….. Fleet Captains for the year and the registered sailboats in their respective fleets were:

Class C:   Tom MacNider    33 boats

Class X:   Bill Nicholas         32 boats

Class Y:   Bob Stoyles          11 boats

Some of you probably don’t even know what a Y Boat is, and most of us have forgotten how huge the CLYC fleets were back in the day.

Later, Oz
