Delavan MIR and C Nationals Regatta Deadline - May 1

DLYC now has the regatta website up for the C Midwest Invitational Regatta (MIR) June 8-10, 2012 and C Nationals June 14-17, 2012.  Check out www.getrankedondelavan.com and register online for either or both of these regattas.  The C Worlds information and registration form will be added to the site later in the summer.  This site also has more information regarding the regattas (e.g., sailing instruction, notice of race, social events, event contacts, etc.) and our sponsors and advertisers.  You can also check back occasionally to get updates to any of this information as well as to see who has registered for the regatta.  If you prefer filling out and printing a paper registration form, you can find these forms at this website as well.

Please visit the website and register for the regattas today.  Early registration for the regattas ends May 1, 2012.

Delavan has great things planned for these regattas including some great prizes with the potential of more to come soon.  Check out the advertisers page on the regatta website and see if you can guess what some of the prizes will be.  We are working on some additional items as well.  Does anyone recognize these names: Ronstan, LayLine, APS, Sailing Angles and SailingAnarchy?  Check back frequently for updates.  Thank you to Melges, North Sails, Velocitek, Lynch Dealerships, Line Honors, Toy Yard Storage, Beeline Communications, Fitch Even, Sail22 and Delavan Lake Yacht Club for their sponsorships.

Opti sailors attend Team Trials Regatta

Brant Beach, NJ was host to this year's team trials. Rough conditions caught our sailors by surprise. A trip to the hospital, rough seas with DNF's and a TLE (time limit elimination) - it was a tough regatta for our locals. Pictured are John Porter, Summerset Marine (coach), Mark Davies, Parker Michel, Lawson Levine (from Chicago), Henry Chapman and Alec Bischoff.
