2nd Annual V36 Open postponed.
Algae clumps invaded the racecourse as the first race was started and got much worse from there. Combine this with high heat and humidity ( Real-Feel temp of 105°) and fickle breeze that dropped dramatically about 1/2 way through the first race caused the decision to postpone the regatta to a later, still to beContinue reading “2nd Annual V36 Open postponed.”
We Had Wind!
Estimating around 15 MPH wind ( with much higher gusts) aloft which translated into some strong gusts, severe swirls and many knockdowns and roundups on the course. Four skippers completed 2 full 12 heat regattas today, one (a makeup from earlier in the season) in the AM and the other after an hour break atContinue reading “We Had Wind!”
Herb Wins Twice
Thanks to the 2 popup shades brought by Chris and Jerry as well as the iced water that Chris brought, conditions were tolerable. Also thanks to Rick for bringing his kayak to replace the mark dragged in by a fisherman. Due to the extreme heat, it was decided that both regattas would be 6 races.Continue reading “Herb Wins Twice”
Herb does it again!
Herb Dreher again came out on top in the V36 Regatta 3. A very late start and early finish caused by many floating weed patches made for only 5 races to be completed. Winds were mostly adequate but shifty which, along with the weed patches, made for difficult conditions. Our thanks to the participants forContinue reading “Herb does it again!”
EC-12s canceled again
It is with a heavy heart I must once again cancel the EC-12 race. The forecast has us at a 70% chance of thunderstorms, just rain and we could have raced but no one will be zapped on my pond. Enjoy your 4th and we will see you soon.
NMYC Does Extremely Well @ Sasquatch Regatta
On Saturday, June 18 several NMYC members competed in Wolfeboro at the Sasquatch Footy Regatta.

Congratulations skippers!
2nd DF95 Regatta Postponed
We had Rick, Alain, and Chris show up. As race time approached, the wind shifted and blew a large number of weeds onto the course causing impossible racing conditions. Because of this, racing was canceled and will be a made up at a later date. The good news is that most of the weed isContinue reading “2nd DF95 Regatta Postponed”
Second V36 Results
5 skippers again competed in the second V36 regatta of the season under fluky winds with the added problem of many floating weed islands. Herb again out sailed the fleet and after 10 races were completed, the regatta was called. Alain had a few control issues with his boat and withdrew early.

Commodore Rick Gates steps down.
Rick has stepped down as Commodore due to personal reasons and Chris O’Brien has stepped up to fill the vacancy. We wish both good luck.
