Looks like Harry Carpenter and Ryan Malmgren will be having their racing clinic today on shore. One of my favorite things about Ephraim is all these future sailors running around and having fun no matter what. They are playing telephone upstairs and doing arts and crafts downstairs. Weather is expected to clear for the 30+ racers who have pre-registered.
Things turned around quite a bit and On Monday, the EYC Facebook Page said this:
Thanks to everyone for coming out and making the 112th Ephraim Regatta a success!
A special thank you to the people who generously used their boats to help run the regatta: David Chomeau, Chris Bungener, John Huff, Jim Rowings, Bob Kieckhafer.
We would also be nothing without our amazing volunteers: Nancy Claypool, John and Deanna Peterson, Wally Waleffe, Sibylle Tasker, Heather Andersen, Susan Reynolds-Smith, Lisa Gifford, Matt Winnacker, Steve Crane, Cain Goettelman, Liz Dischner, Michael Faugust, Ryan Malmgren, and Harry Carpenter of Flying Scot Inc.
We also had volunteers from South Shore Yacht Club, Moraine Sailing Club and Milwaukee Yacht Club: Dan Goldberg, Fred Horowitz, Bob Aring, John Archibald, Tom Salkowski, Dave August serving on Race Committee and as judges.
Thanks to Jorie Johansen for taking these great pictures of everyone.
There will always be an Ephraim Regatta thanks to all of you!
