Ten Mile Lake Sailing Club
Welcome to racing on Ten Mile!
For more than 80 years when the wind was right C-Scows have raced on Ten Mile. Over the years a wonderful collection of vintage traveling trophies came to be inscribed with the boat and crew names from many generations of Ten Mile Lake C-Scow sailers. We encourage you to join in the fun.
Our experiment last summer with spontaneous racing was a great success.
On a perfect sailing day in July Mariah Crabb texted a racing challenge to the fleet. Five boats responded to Mariah and all soon converged along the NW Shore for three wonderful, fun filled races. Two weeks later Kion Hoffman set race buoys off Brandt’s point in winds gusting to 18 mph, texted a challenge and we enjoyed three memorable heavy air races.
Learn to sail a C-Scow and embrace competitive sailboat racing and Ten Mile’s high performance one-design racing fleet. Nimble in light air the C-Scow can be the perfect ride for family and friends to reconnect while exploring distant shorelines and friends across the lake.
It takes a community and the club wants to recognize Dick Staunton and Pete Crandell for their help with the committee boat and to acknowledge the generous donations of Mark and Linda Putney, Tom and Patty Brandt, and Jeff and Deb Manlove for generously keeping us current with Inland lake Yachting Association dues.
We love to teach racing and welcome new sailers of all ages.
