Dear BLYC Friends and Sailors,

Welcome to sailing and summer 2022! We are thrilled to announce a great season of parties and racing. We kick-off the racing season with the Early Bird Regatta on May 28th! Remember to get your dues in prior to the first race sailors! 


We also have an exciting addition to our race schedule. Browns Lake will be hosting the MIR (Midwest Invitational Regatta) on June 11th and 12th. Races begin at 10:30 both days and will include sailors from many of our neighboring yacht clubs. It's sure to be some great sailing and we're thrilled to be hosting. 


Many thanks in advance to our Sunday judges Ed and Pat Impens, and Rick and Pat Fettes. Also thank you to our Wednesday judge Dennis Lynch, and race helpers and boat rescuers Patti and Denny Donohoe. We are looking for additional rescue boats this summer, so if you have a soft-sided boat, we'd love your help! We can do an early season "Boat Righting" tutorial. 

The board this year includes:

Commodore                 Chris Impens

Vice Commodore          Tod Hammes

Fleet Captain               Eric Lindell

Treasurer                     Kurt Petrie/Nikki Andrews

Secretary                     Mary Lynch

Social Chair                 Dian Lynch/Pat Impens/Anje Schaefer
 

Ellen Kmecak is once again heading up our sailing school with the help of Cory Busch. This is a huge effort and a most important source for club growth. We are once again looking at a July schedule.  We'd love a warm welcome for these families, so if you have a minute, stop by Halls Point Beach and say hello!
