·         The Wawasee Yacht Club location on Google Maps is correct

·         We are on Eastern Standard Time

·         The SI’s are attached.  Appendix A – Course Diagram – will be available at registration

·         The registration fee ($135) covers everything for your team of 3.  Extras (meals, shirts, etc) may be purchased.

·         We have one crane, but our volunteers get people in and out pretty quickly.

·         There is (still) no WiFi at the club

·         This IS David Schmahl at the club

·         Everyone will have housing

·         There are showers at the club

·         Most people will arrive Friday evening.  Skipper’s meeting is Saturday at 1100, so there is time to rig in the morning

·         Fact:  Lake Wawasee is one of the southernmost glacial lakes in the US

·         For Friday dinner, there are 2 great options nearby

·         There is a big BRUNCH at the club Saturday morning from 0900 til 1100.  There is no lunch, so eat a lot!

·         For you early birds, stop at Brew City Roasting Company in town (2 miles north) for great coffee and treats.  The Syracuse Café is also a nice sunrise breakfast joint.

·         We’re planning on mostly downwind finishes

·         Bill and Lori Crawford are official race photographers!  (visit

·         Our protest committee is ill-tempered, so let’s settle everything before returning to the pier

·         Beer and the famous hot buttered rum after sailing.  Happy hour at 6PM.  Dinner & Program at 7:00

·         Dinner is steak, baked potato, salad, etc.

·         Sunday morning light breakfast at the club.  Lunch (chili) to follow racing.
