Fog seems to be the common factor in the 2019 T-10 Class Sanctioned Regattas in Detroit, Chicago and Cleveland. At the 2019 Cleveland Race Week, which serves as the Lake Erie T-10 Regional Championship, Trey Sheehan and his crew on Hooligan: Flat Stanley Racing managed 4 bullets in 6 races, plus a 2nd and 3rd to dominate the racing. Scott Irwin and Team IBall were second and Perfect Villain took third. Congrats to all the racers!
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Despite choppy waves, Cleveland Race Week sailors headed out on Lake Erie to kick off a week-long competition and celebration of Cleveland sailing.
Cleveland’s largest sailing regatta is approaching its 40th anniversary and operates out of Edgewater Yacht Club. More than 300 boats will participate in the races this week. Another 300 will participate in Youth Day on Wednesday. Junior sailors are eight to 18 years old. The oldest sailors reach 80 years old.
The regatta overlaps with remembrance events for the 50th anniversary of the historic Cuyahoga River fire, which took place on June 22, 1969.
Cleveland Race week update from Suzie Zack…
Day 3 brought us heavy fog and minimal breeze. November over Alpha has been displayed. Congratulations to Hooligan: Flat Stanley Racing on a well sailed event. The competition was strong this weekend and all of the competitors are looking forward to NACs at Mentor Harbor Yacht Club in August.
Cleveland Race week update from Suzie Zack
Going into the day everyone was wondering if we’d see the big gusts and thunderstorms that were predicted. Instead we saw 10-14 out of the SSW which means beautiful flat seas here in Cleveland. Race Committee was on the shifts, as were the leaders. Hooligan holding strong with a 1, 1, 2, Team I-Ball came in with 2, 2, 4 and Proper Villain 4, 3, 1. Tomorrow’s racing will be very competitive as the leaders look to claim the title of Lake Erie Champion.
