Single Handed Regatta Cancelled 

Due to low water levels the Single Handed Regatta and Governors' Cup Series are canceled this year. The lake is near 400' elevation and many of our single handed sailors have expressed concern over launching at Hobie Cove. I feel we have been fortunate to have the water last as long as it did and look forward to a hopefully wetter winter this coming year. This cancelation does not impact the informal Wednesday night racing or social events like meetings and the annual banquet.

Thanks for a great year on the water!!

2014 FLYC Cup Boat Regatta 

The annual Cup Boat Regatta will be held at the Poimiroo residence (1448 Crocker, EDH) on Tuesday, August 12, starting at 6:30 p.m. This is a social event, no-host BBQ and pot luck dinner open to all members and prospective members of FLYC (originated by Banshee Fleet One) at which sailboats made from styrofoam cups are sailed in the Straits of El Dorado (the Poimiroo pool). All materials to make a cup boat are supplied. Attendees are requested to bring one shared item according to their last name, as follows:

A - J, salad; K - P, dessert; and Q - Z chips/dips/appetizers

Attendees should also bring whatever entrée (meat) they plan to BBQ and their preferred alcoholic beverage. Ice and disposable cups, plates, utensils and napkins will be provided.

The Cup Boat Regatta Deed of Gift and sailing instructions can be read online by clicking here.

Summer Series Sailing 

Update: Summer Series racing has come to an end. We were able to run the fourth and final race day with just enough water and wind to get in three races. Big thanks to all of our racers and crew. Expect to see summer evening racing back on the calendar for 2015. Unfortunately the lake is close to our low water limit for racing and the remaining planned club races will likely be canceled. (Does not impact Wednesday nights or Steele cup) Thanks for a great sailing season and hope for more rain next year!! 

Final results posted 8/15

Let Us Know! 

One of this issues the club faces when putting on an event is knowing how many people might attend.

A perfect example of this is the Steele Cup regatta scheduled for 8/16.  We might get 5 banshees or 25 (ok, maybe 15).  And we might get 3 Lido 14's or we might get a whole bunch.  We really don't know.  And not knowing makes it very difficult to plan.  How much food & drinks do we bring for the potluck?  How many (expensive) trophies do we need to purchase?

To help us figure these things out, the website now has a new feature which I call Let Us Know!

You can get to it from the FLYC home page (look at the left column) or the events page (look at the top).  When you get to it, you will be able to select an event and indicate that you are planning to attend, and you can also see who else has said they are planning to attend.  Just enter your name (or to be sneaky, your initials) and your boat type (if its sailing event) and then click on the button.  The list will be instantly updated any your entry will be at the bottom.

Just to be clear, you are NOT committing to be there rain or shine.  Nobody will hold it against you if you do not come.  It's just a way for us to gauge how many people might be attending the event.

Let us know what you think about this feature, and if you have any suggestions to make it better.

Low Water Conditions 

Due to extreme low water conditions, Spring Series Racing is officially on hold until water levels increase. The minimum elevation required to run on the water activities is 400ft and the lake level is currently holding below 360ft elevation. Lake levels state wide are not expected to rise until we experience a significant weather event as the snow pack is well below seasonal norms for January. Please do what you can during this drought to conserve water.

In an effort to keep members connected, FLYC will open the clubhouse for activities starting at 11am on each of the Spring Series race days. The club will provide access to the BBQ (bring your own meat), drinks and snacks along with sailing trivia or other games.

If you pre-paid for Spring racing, we will refund your entry fee. Contact Barbara Craig or Scott Fredrickson.

The following changes to the FLYC schedule are effective immediately and we will work on updating the 2014 calendars accordingly. Please pass the word to your fellow sailors.
