There are two great regattas coming up to cap off the midwest sailing season: the "Whale" at Carlyle Lake, IL, and the "Glow" at Clinton Lake, IL. Deb and I plan to attend both (our fleet hosts the Glow) and we plan to post results and regatta reports for both events.
The Whale of a Sail is Sept 17-19. Here's a link to the Whale Notice of Race: NOR. This is a multi-class regatta, but the Flying Scots always have a separate start. The race management and hospitality are superb. The facilities are world class.
The Glow II regatta is Sept 24-26. Information, NOR, etc. about this regatta can be found on the CLSA web page. Many sailors camp right on the club grounds. Both Friday and Saturday night there will be a bonfire.
