Sunfish Fleet #27 is going strong on Lake Truesdale. We have six active sailors in our 2021 fleet. This is down a bit from our banner year in 2020 when we saw a covid-surge in sailing and many other activities on the lake.
Jonathan leads the 2021 series so far. Skip is hot on his heels. Rob and Ira are battling for the bronze medal. Paul and Kevin have to notch a few more races to challenge for any hardware in 2021.
Due to some windless Sundays, vacations, and Hurricane Henri, we have only 11 of the expected 18 races completed. Our sailors today voted to extend the season through September Sundays to get some more races in for the season. The Presidents Cup will be moved to Columbus Day weekend in October
If you are a Lake Truesdale resident and want to come out and race but are worried you are too much of a beginner — or not keen on sailing in boat traffic — we’ve got you covered. Beginners get a 2 minute head start and lots of friendly coaching during the race, especially if the wind is light or moderate. In addition, our regular sailors are always willing to come out on a Saturday or before the races on Sunday to give some lessons in sailing and racing. If you don’t have a boat we have boats to lend so you can get a feel for the wind.
