2013 News

This year rather than doing an Early and a Late Summer Series, we have divided our racing into a Thursday and Saturday Summer Series. It appears we have a slightly different group sailing Thursday evenings vs. Saturday afternoons. So this year you can choose between one or the other, or sail in both for the overall IBS/LTYC Perpetual Trophy. Start times on Thursday are at 6:00 pm and the racing kicks off on June 27th. Saturday starts are at 3:00 pm. with racing beginning on June 29th.  Individual awards will be presented to the top 5 finishers in both fleets, for both the Thursday and Saturday series.


Big News! Mark your calendars, this year Harbor Springs has been selected to host the 2013 District 19 Laser Championships. This will be two days of racing on Saturday June 22nd and Sunday June 23rd. This event will be open to all ILCA Members with a class legal Laser standard or Laser radial rig. We are excited and pleased to be hosting this event, it will be a great kick-off to our season and it will round out our overall racing schedule.


As always, our season will wrap up with the Frosty Mug Regatta. This annual event takes place on the first Saturday of October and this year falls on October 5th. Racing will start at 2:00 pm.


Attached is a brochure for the IBS/LTS Summer Series with all the dates and details. Also attached is a flyer on the 2013 District 19 Laser Championships. I’ll be sending out registration sheets for our Summer Series and an NOR on the Districts in the near future. Please contact me if you have questions or need any additional information.


Warm and Windy Regards,
