Ten Mile Lake Sailing Club
In the 1940’s when the wind was right C Scows on Ten Mile Lake took to the water and raced. In the decades that followed 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.
Perhaps this summer will bring a shining example of Ten Mile’s living history to your mantle? Join the fun! We love to teach racing and welcome new sailers of all ages.
To encourage racing in ideal conditions this season will harken back to those early days and award trophies to the winners of short notice, self start races. Basically, if a weekend’s initial scheduled race is postponed anyone on the text tree will be able to instigate a traveling trophy qualifying race simply by texting the fleet of intent to race.
We welcome ideas on incorporating sailboats other than C Scows into our racing and have a long history of teaching sailing skills to new Sunfish skippers. Please contact the commodore if you want to get involved in racing on Ten Mile.
Thank you to Grant Moos for 10 years as club Commodore! The Squall Line newsletters published during his tenure are not to be missed and remain available for download further down this page. Thanks also to Sue Moos and the entire Moos/Ross clan for countless buoy runs, boat rescues and just a couple long afternoons on the committee boat.
It takes a community and the club wants to recognize and thank 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 the club up to date on our Inland lake Yachting Association dues for the past few years.
Please join us for the 2019 sailing season kick off party 4PM Saturday June 29th Roberts cabin NW Shore.
See you on the water!
Commodore Pete Roberts,
Dread Pirate, TM 23
