North Cape Yacht Club

North Cape Yacht Club (NCYC), located on the western shore of Lake Erie in LaSalle, MI, is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 2018 Chubb U.S. Junior Sailing Championships on August 6-10. NCYC has hosted numerous national regattas over the years. We are at full registration and junior sailors are coming from all over the United States.

US Sailing divides the country into 11 Areas. Juniors have competed at regattas in their own Area to qualify for the Championships. Each Area is eligible to send at least one sailor/team to compete in each of the fleets for the event. . This year's registrants include sailors from Waikiki, Boothbay Harbor, Annapolis, Austin, Lake Norman, Cleveland, Grosse Ile, Seattle, San Francisco, and North Cape Yacht Club.

There will be three fleets racing on separate courses in different types of one-design sailboats. Those sailing for the U.S. Junior Triple-handed Championship for the Sears Trophy will be racing in the Lightning. Those competing in the U.S. Junior Doublehanded Championship for the Bemis Trophy will be sailing in the Club 420. Finally, the U.S. Junior Singlehanded Championship for the Smythe Trophy will be raced in the Laser Radial.

NCYC is pleased to add that the 2018 Chubb Championships will be a Silver Level Clean Regatta thanks to NCYC’s Jennifer Logan and Sailors for the Sea.

The 2018 US Junior Sailing Championships is sponsored by Chubb Insurance, Zim Sailing, and Gill North America.

Now that the wind driven flooding has subsided, it is interesting to note the Corps of Engineers report on the March water level for Lake Erie. It was reported as 573.03', which is about 7" higher than March of 2017, and only 9" lower than the record high level for March set in 1986, and almost 23" higher than the long term average for March. All of the Great Lakes were well above their long term averages for March, and all were just below their March record high levels. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello to our friends at TIYC - I have a question about posting my 2 seater for sale on tiyc.net on your buy/sell page. When you click on the link to add your advertisement, you get a "form over quota" message where you would normally submit your ad. Is this just a temporary glitch? Is there another method to post a "for sale" ad? I'm under the assumption that you do not want them posted here on your FB page. Any suggestions? Thanks, Craig. PS. If there is interest, the boat is in Sandusky, and I posted a for sale listing on the Sandusky Ice Yacht Club FB page. ... See MoreSee Less

Warm Air, Cold Ice...
This week we will see the Maumee Bay turn from white to dark as the snow cover melts away. Also this could have a leveling effect on the ice akin to a giant "Zamboni" cruising through.
Of course we all have our eyes peeled on the forecasts for Friday and Saturday snow showers. These could be bad for iceboating.
Since we never can tell what the weather REALLY is going to do, we will remind all that the Greiner Open which was postponed last weekend is on the schedule for this coming weekend. Hopefully the snow will miss us, or not affect the sailability of the ice too much.

Although Greiner Open Regatta is postponed this weekend, a few of us managed to sail today. Snow is very dry and sticky about 20% clear, snow coverage varies from 1/4-3/4” depth. Short snow-slipper runners were best in the light winds.
Saturday winds look light, Sunday has good winds and the snow will likely be softening up.
2PM Sunday will be a group photo shot so bring your boats to Lashaway’s.

Islanders leave their Christmas trees at South Bass Island State Park. A few experienced ice lovers venture out to check the ice & use the trees to mark a path.

Greiner Open POSTPONED
Due to extreme cold on Saturday, extreme gusty conditions on Sunday.
TIYC WILL SET MARKS
And allow scrub or club races (if conditions allow).
These challenging conditions are what racers need experience in as extreme cold or sticky snow happens.

The ice continues to grow on Maumee Bay. The snow is making light air sailing difficult or impossible. It is also making sailing in gusty conditions hazardous.
It is not recommended that sailors unfamiliar with the Maumee Bay or without a local base or headquarters try to sail here this weekend.

Approximately .8 NM course possible in area scouted this morning. about 1/2" powder snow on surface has little effect on speed. Plenty of breeze, but still manageable so far today.
The ice is NOT SAFE for motorized vehicles of anykind. The ice right along shore of Point Place has a smooth surface and will be fantastic for ice skating, or iceboating (if wind is light). All sailors are advised to use extreme caution sailing near shore. South of 125 St, the seam line will have mud, sand, wood, even a rock or two in it. So stay outside or inside that seam once you go south of there. Some of the wood hazards were marked with flagging tape. Cant guarantee we got them all, but it helps you tune in to what your are looking for.
As always stay away from the Maumee River Channel, and the Grassy Island Cut (the farthest south part of the sailing area).
Ice near grassy gets a bit rough, so we have not yet ventured close to check ice there.
WARNING!! If you do not have experience, proper clothing, etc.... we advise you stay off the ice, or find someone who can escort you on and show you around.
IF there is a course set (two brightly colored marks about .75 mile apart) please be aware of other traffic. Iceboat racing is generally very safe because of the predictability of traffic patterns. Skaters, Cruising Iceboats, pedestrians, pets, etc. can cause accidents so please keep you heads up and watch all around if you are out on the ice.
AGAIN NO ICE IS SAFE ICE!
