News From the Cleveland Sailing Association                                 Volume III Number 3

June 15, 2011

The CSA 2011 series season officially started this past weekend at the Mentor Regatta. Tartan 10's and Ensign's competed in one design classes with two Phrf and a JAM division rounding out the competitor fleets. Hunter Chisholm the Regatta organizer did a masterful job of ensuring the regatta was a first class event. 

On the Friday before the Regatta, the famed television sports anchor Tony Zarrella of WOIO climbed aboard a Beneteau 36.7 and was introduced to the sport of sail racing. His story, Mentor Regatta results, and photographs of the racing can all be found guessed it,

The FW Roberts Race starts Friday evening at CYC to commence the CSA South Shore Series. There is still time to enter. I wish fair winds and following seas for that classic. 

Cleveland Race Week also begins Friday with the Tartan 10 Lake Erie Championships. On Tuesday, June 21, we begin our Women's and Double-handed racing. NCWSA BOATS HAVE NO EXCUSES FOR NOT APPEARING ON THE SCRATCH SHEET! There, I said it. Nasty grams available by request.

Double-handed sailing has grown over the past few years. This event offers opportunities for short handed teams, couples, and those who have brawn to either show off exemplary sailing skills or simply to be out on the water on the summer solstice and enjoy themselves while being a part of Cleveland Race Week.

Are you a JAM sailor? Pull the crew together and enjoy a free open invitational JAM race and party at Chagrin Lagoons Yacht Club on Saturday, June 18th. All the information you need can be found....where you ask?

If you are planning to attend this years Burning River Fest? Use the CSA promotional code when purchasing your tickets on-line. Whats the secret CSA code you wonder? ....of course you can find it at  

See us at Cleveland Race Week for CSA t-shirts, the new CSA 15 month calendar, and CSA series information. Scratch sheets will be made after Cleveland Race Week. Meanwhile, see the CSA yachts and current entries 

With the sunset of the longest day of the year in the western sky and the nearly full moon rising over the city skyline, celestial events blanket Cleveland Race Week. On June 21st, there is no place in the world I'd rather be than out on the water as a witness. Not even Stonehenge. 

As always, I look forward to seeing you at the Start Line.
