Torch Lake 2017 Nationals

It was an exceptional regatta and many thanks to the Torch Lake Yacht Club for a well run and fun regatta. Everyone had a blast and how can you not enjoy sitting on the porch enjoying great views and great racing. We will have more updates as the day goes on.

More: What did we learn at Torch Lake?
1. Spring Lake had 3 of the top 5 positions
2. Noah Wolters, Zoe Czadzeck and Camden Seymour are pretty consistent. 3. Crystal Lake traveled and it was awesome.
4. What an awesome event and big thanks to Casey.
5. The Northern lakes in Michigan are getting faster and faster.
See you all at Westerns!

Your 2016 Butterfly Youth and Open Champs

It's Good to be King!

Our new 2016 National Champion is now Paul Miller. What a great sailor who has worked hard and is now champion. Hopefully we will get a chance to interview him in the next few weeks. Winning the overall title is no easy feat as the past reigning champ was a six time winner. Good for you Paul and here's to hopefully many more!

It is time to get with the times! Looking good.
