2021 US Nationals - Ron Sherry - 1st Place Gold

In January the “Ice Scouts” drove many miles across the mid-west states to locate favorable conditions for excellent sailing. The first day of racing for the 2021 U.S. Nationals was on Jan 26, on Black Lake, near Sheboygan, in northern Michigan. Long cold days provided good breezes, excellent racing action and manageable snow drifts for the 52 entries. 

Congratulations to Ron Sherry for taking 1st place in the Gold Fleet and to all the CSYC members who participated this year. Check out the great videos and photos at to get your adrenaline flowing for this extreme sport.

Pictures from the 87th Annual Crescent Sail Yacht Regatta

The 87th Annual Crescent Regatta started out with a nice NW breeze, with 63 boats participating in the large course and 14 in the small boat course. The good breeze clocked, and affected the fleet unfavorably. A number of fleets ran out of the allotted time to finish the course and were retired from the race. Results are posted on the DRYA website.

The five-time Rolex Yachtsman of the Year award winner raced in college, has coached disabled Olympic racers, worked as a master sailing instructor for almost 40 years and she discusses the pandemic, the US Sailing portal, the world of women in sailing and her enthusiasm about sailing will make your heart warm during the cold month of February.
