April 23rd KU Spring Scrimmage:  Our Colligate race program will be underway.  If you haven't watched these kids sail, I strongly recommend getting out to meet them.  It is awesome to see the enthusiasm they have for our sport.  They races are exciting to watch, and the energy from these youth sailors is contagious.  To get involved contact Tim Kelley timokelley@yahoo.com

August 19th-20th Snipe District 2 Regatta: I want to again thank everyone who put in so much work last season at the Snipe Masters Championship in 2022 and for the District event this year.  Scroll down for a report on this year's regatta. It is good tight racing in a fleet with very knowledgeable and friendly sailors. I am really looking forward to their return to our club.

October 7th and 8th KU Big 12 Regatta:  I highly encourage you to come see the enthusiasm these students have for our sport. The races run are short and compact, meaning lots of action making spectating both entertaining and informative.  I can’t say it enough the energy these students have for the sport of sailing is contagious.

2023 Snipe District 2 Championship

Regatta Report 

 

The Snipe District 2 Championship was expected to be hot and provide heated competition. It ended up “next level" for the 14 boats from 6 different states in attendance. The representation was impressive and of particular note was a mix of younger Snipe sailors attending their first District champs, with 5 sailors under 21 years old. 

The RC, led by Ron Holm and Richard Oben was able to complete four races mixing Windward-Leeward and an Olympic course on Saturday with a southern breeze ranging in the teens to gusts in the low 20 mph range. The shifty gusty conditions placed a priority on tacking, depowering in the puffs and boat handling. 

 

The event would not have been possible without some exceptional PYC volunteers. Jill Huffmire and Sarah Melling served up food and beverage. Neal and Nancy Barkley provided on-site smoked bar-be-que. And of course, a great team on the water with Ron Holm, Richard Oben, Joe Glasgow, Jeff Dobbs, and Kathleen Coode along with Sean Kalic who captured pictures of the action.
