The first practice race for 2021 scheduled for today is Postponed until April 28th.
It’s been a busy year so far for the Waukegan Yacht Club. After a terrible 2020, which included the tragic and unexpected loss of our Commodore, Jim Hellquist, WYC got a new breath of life. The new commodore and board of directors has been working long and hard to make 2021 a great year for the club.
This year has already seen some amazing things. We had an RC Boat Build and Race, then over 20 members and non-members turned out to participate in our Spring Cleanup. The club has never looked better!
Unfortunately, the weather stepped in to spoil our plans to get the Committee boat painted and launched. We had a crew assembled to paint the boat last weekend but we had to delay the effort due to rain. The boat finally go painted but not soon enough to get her in the water for today’s practice race.
The practice race has been rescheduled for April 28th. Practice races don’t count toward awards or standings, but they allow you to shake out your gear and crew and get ready for the season. Come out and join us. All racers are welcome!
