Booked: 3 | Free Seats: 9

Ed Gans Memorial Sail at Montrose Harbor

Asayo Horibe, Cruise Captain

Saturday, June 15, 2019

To get on street parking, sailors should arrive early around 9:00am. We will assign folks to boats by 10:30am. Sailors meet just east of the dinghy dock and skippers will let us know where they will be so crew can board easily. I will need participants by Monday, June 10, 2019 so I can make the reservations at the Corinthian Yacht Club.

Bring your sailing gear, your lunch (and a snack to share) in a soft sided carrier. Sailing gear could include: "PFD, white soled or sailing shoes, sun glasses, cap with strap, wind breaker, sailing gloves, sunscreen and anything else you may need for your comfort."

Following the sail, the plan is dinner at the Corinthian Yacht Club and please remember to honor and thank your skippers at the end of the event.

For further details my land line phone is (847-869-5806) and my cell phone (224-623-1304).

Please call if you are unable to attend or to cancel.

Summer Sailstice, Northern Harbors

Booked: 2 | Free Seats: 22

Summer Sailstice, Northern Harbors

Saturday, June 22, 2019

George and Sally Andersson, cruise captains

One of THREE Summer Sailstice sails this weekend.

In order to have an organized and fun sail, here are preliminary proposals:

All captains interested in participating, please notify the cruise captain so we may plan accordingly.
The cruise captain will pick a latitude and longitude where all boats will meet.
We will stay in communication by radio and sail within sight of each other. I want to have a flotilla instead of solo sails.
Following the sail, we will meet at SouthPort Marina in Kenosha for a cookout.
Boaters from other marinas: Please join us in Kenosha once your boat is secured.

NWSA will also celebrate the event out of several Chicago Lake Michigan harbors organized by Larry Makowski and Lake Mendota, Madison, WI with Joe Rittner as cruise captain.

Kenosha I Sail

2019 Sailing Schedule Bill Fetter
Booked: 5 | Free Seats: 95

Join us for a fun sail out of Kenosha Harbor.  The sail will take place on June 29th, 2019 with a rendevous time of 9 AM.  Rendevous will be 1/2 mile east of the Kenosha channel mouth.  Depending on the wind, I thought we could sail up around the Racine Reef and back.  This should take between 4 and 6 hours.  After the sail, we can all meet up for dinner.  As people sign up I will look at places within walking distance.
