The days are getting longer, and the weather is (finally) getting warmer. The ice cleared from the lake last week, and we've wasted no time getting the club ship shape and ready for action. The dock is in place, the clubhouse is set up and ready to go, the moorings are set and and the new motor for the committee boat had its first run. Even the BoatCam pitched in, watching the dock being assembled.
While we were at it, we've rearranged a few things. The dumpster has been moved from it's unsightly central location to a spot more out of the way and easier to reach from the clubhouse. The upper circle for small boats is now more of a line, leading to a small natural slope to the launch ramp, making it easier to get small boats from there to the water. The clubhouse now has hot running water, and there are several new picnic tables.
Racing for all classes starts on Sunday, May 4. The first Wednesday night race is 3 days later on May 7. The Sunfish tuneup series runs on three SUNDAYS in May, the 4, 18 and 25. The next week (May 31) is the 7th Annual Sunfish/Laser Regatta. The regular Saturday Sunfish Series starts a week later on on June 7, and runs through until October.
Meanwhile the MYC@BYC Barrington Frostbite Series has next week off for Easter, then has it's final day of racing on April 27. We don;t have any reports from today's racing yet, but will post them here as soon as we get them.
