Both the Moxness Cup and the End of the Summer races will be held this coming weekend, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7, for the Moxness and Sunday, Aug. 8, at 10:30 a.m. for the End of the Summer race.
The Moxness Cup was canceled on July 31 and Aug. 1 because of stormy weather on Saturday and lack of wind on Sunday.
But we were able to put on a sailing clinic later in the afternoon on Sunday when the wind picked up. Congratulations to Mariah Crabb and her dad, Bob, for winning that time trial among four boats.
Two more sailing clinics were held this week -- one in front of Dick Garbisch’s home on Tuesday and the pirate race on Wednesday that began off Brandt’s point.
Congratulations to Charlie Moos for sailing to victory in both of those multiple races, once with Pete Roberts, Susan Cox and Stephanie Cox as crew and a second time with Jake Brandt and Clayton helping to trim the boat.
We also had several new faces involved in the clinics, including the Cox family (Geoff, Dave, Susan, Stephanie and Kevin); Sarah Bates; Ben, Daniel and Jake Brandt; Daryl Shelton; Oliver Ross; and Clayton (“who has been cool since he was 6”).
We’ll see you out on the lake this weekend.
