Big wind for the annual Corinthian Single-Handed Race this past Sunday. Four boats turned out — Spirit, Vaporize, Cut Loose and Joy. Check out complete results and a recap from Rodger Voss.
Join the Corinthians this Sunday, July 26, for the Single-handed Race. Committee boat will be on station between Hogback and Yankee Yacht at noon with a start at 12:30. Nate Dickinson is still hopeful that there will be a volunteer to run committee boat for the race; if you can help out email Nate at [email protected].
Shifting and variable winds from 5 to 15 knots tested the skills of our helmswomen as they negotiated Canoe Islands and Hogback, twice around. Crystal Dickinson on Cut Loose took first place. The team of Caroline Jackson and Gretchen Romenesko on JaKo were second, and Moriah’s team of Dawn Roy and Deb Parker were third. Complete results on lakegeorgeracing.com.

From Nate: “I wish to thank those who have sent in the $30.00 membership fee, especially those who have given extra. In fairness to those who have already contributed, a check from anyone who wishes to help made out to LGCYC would be appreciated. We need funds for trophies, the end of season party, and a cushion for next years Ti Race. Nate Dickinson, 257 Vaughn Road, Hudson Falls, NY 12839.”
The Father, The Son, and Spirit: Congratulations to Nate and John Dickinson for winning the Non-Spinn and Spinnaker fleets of this year’s Ti Race, respectively. The first Father/Son duo to do so in the history of the race, and on Father’s Day to boot. It was a challenging lite wind marathon with the last boat finishing at 6 am Sunday. Congratulations also to Spirit, who eked out the close but uncontested sprint race around Dome. Check out complete results for all fleets.
