May Community Sailing Event

May 7th, 2023, was our Community Sailing Event.

The weather was perfect for our community sailing event.  The winds were 10-15 MPH which give people a taste of the more exciting side of sailing.  We had 73 people come out, ranging in age from 5 to 94.

Thank you to everyone who came out and to the OHSC members who did an amazing job organizing the event.

May 2022 Regatta

Our May regatta was held on a beautiful Saturday the 21st.

Thanks to Roger Bates for volunteering to be P.R.O. and to Patrick and Leslie Duffy for doing rescue boat instead of sailing to fill 3 empty positions on race committee.

Three new club members and 2 guests participated in the regatta. Six monohulls and 3 multihulls were on the water.

Three races of one lap each were run over a triangle course. Winds varied between nothing to light in the first 2 races with stronger and gusty winds for the third.

All in all, it was another great day on the water! See some photos in our gallery here.

Community Fun Day May 2022!

Despite the early rain and threat of thunderstorms, we had a GREAT DAY!

The rain stopped around 11:00 a.m. when the first people arrived. The rest of the day was beautiful! Winds were up and down but for the most part they were enough so people could get a sense of what sailing was like.

Approximately 25-30 people came out and sailed with us. We even had a few new members!

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported this event. Check out pictures in our gallery here.

May 2022 Gunkhole Regatta / P.R.O. Training

Despite isolated rain showers and storms popping up all around us, Saturday’s combination P.R.O. Training/Gunhole was a success! The P.R.O. training started at 9:30 am with about a dozen in attendence and went till about 10:30 am at which time we rolled straight in to the skipper’s meeting for our May Gunkhole Regatta.

The starting signal for the regatta sounded at about noon with six brave sailors across four boats vying for the oar. Winds were light at the start, but picked up during the race with intermittent light rain. All sailors returned to shore by around 3 pm. Thankfully, heavy rain held off until everyone had secured their boats and gear!

Congrats to Mike Vitamvas who won the event on his US1 and went home with the oar, our traveling trophy! 2nd place went to Sue Cole, 3rd place to Gary Gooden/Bailey Jones, and 4th to Chris and Mary Malcolm.

Huge thanks to Roger for passing on his wisdom during the P.R.O. training.
