LOG Article
The Harbor 20 “Clipper”, which has been a regular participant in Club racing events for several years, has now been added to the IYC owned Harbor 20 fleet. Thanks Ralph and Rise’ Holt for your generous gift!
 
IYC sailors continue to make waves at local sailing events. At the 3rd Annual Hospice Cup Regatta hosted by Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, four IYC Sailing Club member owned Har­bor 20s participated in spectacular Har­bor 20 racing. Tied going into race 5, Jim Nuzzo and John Walsh in “H2O” pulled out a win in a strong 8-boat field to take first place honors for the regatta. The results were in doubt until “H2O” prevailed in a tack­ing duel with the second place boat, “Dark and Stormy”, on the weather leg. This win qualifies Jim and John to race in the Na­tional Hospice Regatta on Lake Ontario in August.
 
Jim and John are also currently leading the IYC 2017-18 Harbor 20 Championship series. They have heavy competition so stay tuned as the series progresses.
 
Our racing program would not be possible without our support personnel. For many years Jim McKenzie, ably assisted by Jim Morrow and others, has run the Precision 15 races. We have gone from three or four boat Precision races to ten plus boat Harbor 20 races. Given the increased racing, the support re­quirements have increased as well. In addition to the committee boat, we now have a support boat. Michael Mixson’s “Catfish” has been this season’s H20 series committee boat. “Catfish” has been operated by Jake Dye, Primary Race Officer Bob Gould and timers Patti Mixson & Shelly Harris. For the first races of this H20 series, Mickey Amy provided the support boat and Max Achtau assisted her. On the second series race day, the new IYC Support Boat, “Roger’s Boat”, crewed by Larry Holden and Mark Kuharski, was on the water supporting the races. If you are interested in enjoying our Charlotte Harbor waters and supporting the IYC rac­ing program at the same time, contact Joe Onofrio.
 
In March, we will again host the Leukemia Cup Regatta. This is our signature charity event and every year we make a significant contribution to fight blood cancers. Joe Onofrio will be sharing with us new tools and approaches to aid in fundraising from fam­ily and friends.
 
Thanks to Bob Sween and his ISC crew for crowning the top of the IYC Clubhouse with a Christmas light display using a broken Precision 15 mast.
