Lake Winnebago, WisconsinHannah Post and Patrick Fisher from Ship 5050 out of Sheboygan, WI take first place at the first Sea Scout Lighthouse Regatta at the Fond du Lac Yacht Club.

The “Fond du Lac Sea Scouts Lighthouse Regatta” was held on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, under sunny skies with favorable winds throughout the day, sailing offshore on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin. Five teams of two registered for the event and raced on Lasers to gain eligibility for next year’s “William I. Koch International Sea Scout Cup Race” in Galveston, Texas. The hosts for this year’s Qualifying Regatta were the Fond du Lac Yacht Club and Sea Scout Ship 5792 with OA (Organizing Authority) provided by the Race Committee.

The First Place honors went to a Sheboygan, Wisconsin team from Ship 5050, one of the oldest Sea Scouting Ships in the United States – Skipper: Patrick Fisher and Crew: Hannah Post. In a close 2nd Place finish was a Fond du Lac, Wisconsin team from Ship 5792 – Skipper: Brenna Wetherbee and Crew: Kyle Nett. In 3rd Place, also from Ship 5792, were Skipper: Adam Nett, and Crew: Sam Grahl.

The Fond du Lac area has a rich Sea Scouting history dating back to the 40s, 50s and 60s and the members of Sea Scout Ship 5792, chartered just 8 months ago with two sailboats in their growing fleet, believe that this Regatta will begin a new chapter of adventures on the water. When you see us on Facebook, you will believe!

Detroit Yacht Club, Detroit, Michigan – – – Skipper Brian Foley with his crew Lubos Koudelka won the Motor City Qualifier Regatta. They will be going to the Koch Cup international Sea Scout Regatta in 2018.
The Motor City Regatta was held on the Detroit River off of the Detroit Yacht Club on a breezy Saturday, August 5, 2017.  The Detroit Yacht Club was joined by the Detroit Boat Club and the Edison Boat Club as sponsors for the 2nd time.  Eight crews from four different Ships in the Central Region participated in Flying Scout sailboats provided by the Detroit Yacht club along with three safety boats.  The Principle Race Office was Linda  Minsterman, a member of the Detroit Yacht Club and the Bayview Yacht Club.  Alan Minsterman was the Race Committee Chair and a Past Commodore of the Detroit Yacht Club.  All crews went out for the first race of the day but since their skill level varied, some felt it was prudent to return to the DYC docks.  Racing was suspended and lunch was served.  Then the wind on the river had abated a bit and racing resumed.  After four afternoon races were completed, the Motor City Regatta was successfully completed.  Dinner featuring burgers and hot dogs was enjoyed by everyone including parents, Ship 1148 adults, and Race committee members.  Followng dinner, all 8 crew members were presented a race flag by Ship 1148 Skipper Tim Branson and DYC Commodore Patricia Thull Obrien.

Avery Point Campus in Groton, CT – The Sea Scout New England Flotilla Championships was conducted on July 28 to July 30, 2017 at University of Connecticut (UCONN) Avery Point Campus in Groton, CT.  The thought of cancelling he event was being considered going into the weekend due to the potential of gale force winds. However, the event was held with a hunch for better weather on Sunday.  Fortunately the storm stayed off coast for the most part.  There were nine teams competing and nine official races were held. All teams demonstrated Scout sportsmanship.
