Passing of a Friend

On Saturday, our friend Byron Hicks passed away after a very long battle with brain cancer.

Byron was a great person to sail with and a friend you always looked forward to seeing again. He made an impact on so many people.

“Lake Lemon Regatta" is ON!!

By Doug Kinzer

After some deliberation at the latest Bloomington Yacht Club board meeting, it was decided to proceed with hosting the Lake Lemon regatta for the "off the beach" boats like Force 5's, lasers and such (no catamarans).   Same date. of course, Sept 23-24.   It'll be great fun!

I've been talking a couple of my Y-Flyer friends to come and sail Force 5's with us.  If you'd be interested in loaning a spare boat to someone, let me know and I'll see if I can fill it.  I should have 2 spares available myself (as long as I get off this forum and get to work).

Hope many of you who had this on your calender...and then didn't...can still make it.  We should still have a pretty good turnout.  Come and enjoy southern Indiana autumn with great sailing and great parties.
