Was it the spirit of the recent Fleet 58 Reunion and Regatta that brought a Hobie onto the lake this evening (Tuesday)? After all, the weather was challenging. It had been raining on and off during the afternoon, it was cold (63 degrees), and the westerly wind could go right through you. Perhaps a good time to be by a roaring fire–inside. But not for this Hobie sailor who was spotted on the lake, not for one tack, but sailing for extended period. The photo was taken about 8:30 pm, and there wasn’t much light. So it’s hard to identify the sail number for lack of clarity. But what is clear that this Hobie couldn’t be stopped by today’s fall-like weather.
And with autumn approaching, Hobies sailors should know that they are invited to the Clark Lake Yacht Club Fall Regatta. Click here for more info.
Meanwhile, discussions are taking place on a return of the Fleet 58 Reunion and Regatta for summer 2015. That’ something that ought to help warm the spirits!
