'Sail for the Cure' Region 4 Championship

Postby Ted Flack » Tue Dec 06, 2016 5:41 pm

Lot's of time to plan you trip to Detroit to sail with us in the Region 4 Championship. We hope to have the J Class boats racing Wednesday and Thursday and the EC12's on Friday and Saturday (like we did last year). We also have plenty of fun activities planned for everyone. DMYC is a Non-Profit Organization so all donations can be tax deductible, money raised is for the American Cancer Society.

Dave,

Absolutely go carts are on the schedule of fun activities. Plus fun stuff at Larry's, he will have some time to get things set up this year, maybe RC Cars will be part of the weekend.

Perhaps we need to have a combined winner of sailing, go carts, RC cars, and whatever else we can dream up.

Looks like we will be at 14 or 15 EC12's and 6 for sure and maybe 8 J's.

Here is the important part, social activities:

Wednesday-Racing J's followed by dinner at local restaurant
Thursday-Dinner and Go Kart Racing for early EC12 arrivals and J Class guys who want to hang around.
Friday- After sailing we will have dinner at the local restaurant..Bakers..near the sailing site.
Saturday-Sailing followed by BIG party at Larry's shop with car rides, RC car racing, Simulator racing and a very nice late lunch/early dinner.

And of course, ice cream every day after racing!

I have been asked about a good local motel, last year a few guys stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Wixom, you can see it from the expressway.

So..... after four days of racing the "Sailing For The Cure" J boat and EC12 Region 4 regatta it is all over.
The top five in the EC12 regatta are:
1-David Ramos
2-Ted Flack
3-Jack Ward
4-David Brawner
5-Scott Mohring
6-Jerry Leonard
7-Bob Armbruster
8-Larry Markey
9-Mike Vanover
10-Jeff Gros
11-Allen Thorson
12-Jim Bowers


We had 19 races over two days in pretty fickle conditions. Six different skippers won races in the light and variable winds.
We ended the event with a nice dinner at Larry Markey's shop, played with RC cars, drones, racing simulator and a few Ferrari rides. I think it is safe to say that everyone had a lot of fun. Thank you Larry for doing that for us all.
Thank you to everyone who attended and also to all the Detroit Model Yacht Club members that gave up their time to come out and help run the events. Dave Brawner won the Go Kart part of the weekend over Larry Markey and Dave Ramos.

Also I am really happy to say that we received a lot of donations to the American Cancer Society in my wife Celeste's name. Thank you to everyone that donated. Also thank you to everyone that attended since some of the entry fee will also be donated. You can't imagine how much this means to me.

And........

The J's raced Wednesday and Thursday in a nice breeze, Wednesday we got chased off the lake by t-storms but Thursday was nice sailing.

1-That Ramos guy
2-Eric Reno
3-Jeff Gros and Jack Ward
4-Bob Armbruster
5-Ken Young
6-Allen Thorson

Great job Ramos. You should take a break now and give some one else a try. LOL.

I have to do posts to the Class website on the laptop these days, so I will update the site as soon as I can pry the laptop away from my 14 year old.
