Regatta Base

Paw Paw Lake Potpourri


The 2002 Paw Paw Lake Pot Pourri, 4th District Opening Regatta, held on May 11 & 12, 2002 provided great close and intense racing. We were pleased to have a skipper and crew from Michigan State University attend in preparation for the collegiate Star regatta to be held in Springfield in September. With their first attempt in the Star, they placed! Conditions were light to medium Saturday with use of the full length of the lake, and a perfect wind came up at the finish of the fourth race to provide an exhilarating blast reach back to the club, it put a smile on everyone’s faces, including the college sailors who want more taste of that. Sunday brought more light to medium air with the beats and reaches across the width of the lake. We had the Race Committee of Mary Murphy, PRO, John Simon, and Barbara Birmingham. Friday night the club provided dinner for the sailors at no-charge to show their support for sailing. Saturday and Sunday breakfast was included. Saturday night we tried something new this year, we all went to a local restaurant, which worked exceedingly well for all. The final race was determined by place of finish for all, McCarthy and Rickard commenced a tacking dual on the final leg, with about 25 tacks, with Rickard controlling all the way to the finish line. See the attached results.
