The next big sailing event is this weekend, Thursday through Sunday, the Inter-Lake Yachting Association’s Senior Regatta at Put-in-Bay. Well over 100 yachts and crews will descend on the Island during the Deep Water Races that will take place today (Thursday, Aug. 1). First up is the Cleveland Deep Water Race on Wednesday evening, July 31. That will be followed by Deep Water Races coming to South Bass Island from Detroit, Toledo, Port Clinton and Sandusky. The actual regatta takes place next Friday through Sunday, Aug. 2-4. The courses will be a combination of “Around the Islands” racing as well as a day of short course racing. There will be many social activities for the sailors as well. Pretty much all of the social activities will take place at Put-in-Bay Yacht Club, which will be a busy place. We will see you there!
