In January the “Ice Scouts” drove many miles across the mid-west states to locate favorable conditions for excellent sailing. The first day of racing for the 2021 U.S. Nationals was on Jan 26, on Black Lake, near Sheboygan, in northern Michigan. Long cold days provided good breezes, excellent racing action and manageable snow drifts for the 52 entries.
Congratulations to Ron Sherry for taking 1st
place in the Gold Fleet and to all the CSYC members who participated this year. Check out the great videos and photos at www.idniyra.org to get your adrenaline flowing for this extreme sport.
The 87th Annual Crescent Regatta started out with a nice NW breeze, with 63 boats participating in the large course and 14 in the small boat course. The good breeze clocked, and affected the fleet unfavorably. A number of fleets ran out of the allotted time to finish the course and were retired from the race. Results are posted on the DRYA website.
The purpose of our Crescent Junior Sailing Program is to provide instructional classes to promote sailing to youth so they can learn seamanship, boat handling skills, regatta tactics and have fun at our club.
All CSYC coaches are US Sailing Level 1-2 certified.

In January the DN Iceboating racers were scratching their heads wondering about ice conditions with such a mild winter. They ventured far west to find great conditions in Fort Peck Montana. Gold fleet top three finishers were 1st James ‘T’ Thieler, 2nd Ron Sherry and 3rd Chad Atkins.
