Written by Administrator   

Fleet 106 is back for its 6th season of racing out of Port Huron, Michigan on Lower Lake Huron.  We are looking forward to a season of competitive racing, social engagements, comradery and the usual buffoonery that goes along with the sailing lifestyle.

The Fleet total numbers have dropped a bit this year but, all the regulars will all be back in force (pun intended).  The main topic at our annual meeting was to develop ways to grow an active fleet.  The method we decided upon was that each active member would be responsible to attract one new member for the season.  This could be someone entirely new to sailing, an experienced dingy sailor looking to get into a new class or experience sailor looking to try dinghy racing for a first time.  The responsibility would include the effort required to help the new member find a boat, consult on boat repairs and upgrades, assist with logistics, provide private tutoring sessions, providing advice on the race course and other assistance as required.  While this could require significant individual efforts, the payback to the Fleet (we hope) will render it worthwhile.

As a final note, we welcome visitors to our racing program at any time and there is no charge.  We have three highlighted events during the season which fall on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.  These are multiple race windward/leeward one day regattas which start late morning and continue until everyone gets tired of racing , which is typically sometime mid-afternoon.  An informal social engagement typically follows.  The champion for the day receives a firm handshake from the others and perhaps a fun prize.  Please feel free to join us. We would love to have you.  For more information please contact Philip Porte -   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 810-434-7675.
