Hello ILYC members. It's a great day for sailing.
Last year, this race was postponed due to weather. As it turned out, there was very good turn out for it. This year, there are several people who have indicated that they have other plans for Labor Day and will not attend.
So, for these reasons, we are postponing the annual Stoddard Thompson race from Monday, Sept 2nd to Sunday, Sept 22nd. The last scheduled club race is Sept. 15th and there is nothing else going on at the club that Sunday.
Stoddard was a charter member of the Indian Lake Yacht Club and avid Interlake sailor. He never tired of sharing his love of sailing with others and promoting the Interlake class. This is why Fleet 10 continues to honor his memory with this annual sailing event.
Remember this is a handicap event, so sailing skill or a fast boat are not required. Cruisers will start well before the I-20s or E Scows.
Be there by noon to get your handicap. Bring beer to get an even better handicap.
See you then.
