May 2012 News Articles

We enjoyed a spectacular day of racing at Bolton Lake on May 20 with warm temps and a relatively steady light southeasterly breeze. Ken Charles won the day, continuing a streak of strong finishes dating back to last summer when he won at Lake Massapoag against a strong fleet.

The Lake Bluff Yacht Club is pleased to welcome the 50th Sunfish North American and Youth Champions to the shores of Lake Michigan between July 30 and August 4th, 2012.

Bill Brangiforte narrowly beat out Scott Greenbaum (2nd) and Andy David (3rd) to take the 2011/2012 Frostbite series at Barrington (RI) Yacht Club. Brangiforte won both the spring and fall seasons to take the top overall spot.

We had an interesting series this year. While the fleet size was down a bit, we had really good racing, and personally, I think I learned more this year than ever before. I like to take things I read about or know that I need work on, and put them into play while frostbiting. Here are a few things I picked up this season and am looking forward to trying out this summer.
