Commodore’s Challenge 2016

Ahoy WLSC Sailors/Racers!

Please note that the Commodore Challenge for 2016 is named in honor of Jess Arnett who was the WLSC Commodore in 1987.  For those not familiar with the Commodore Challenge, this race is conducted as follows:

  • A self-timed one boat race from the buoy line at Lakeshore Marina, head east to the big island and go around it either clockwise or counter-clockwise (your choice), and then back to the buoy line.  Approx 3.3 nautical miles total length of race.
  • Be careful to steer clear of several reefs when going around the island, e.g. at the west end of the island, the south-east corner of the island, east of the island, and south of the island.
  • Time of race:  ANYTIME, between April 1 and October 31, 2016.
  • You pick the time, the sailboat, sail configurations, and the crew, and race as many times as you want.
  • After completing your race, please provide the following information to Race Captain Dave Gurysh, preferably via email to: 
  • –  Your name and crew
    –  Actual elapsed time of your race         (minutes:seconds)
    –  Model and name of sailboat
    –  Date of race
    –  Brief description of wind conditions and any other interesting facts

  •  Elapsed times will be corrected by the Race Captain according to the Average PHRF Rating for the sailboat per US Sailing (ref year 2011).

So pick a nice day on the lake with favorable winds and take the Arnett Challenge.

Fair winds and good luck,

Dave Gurysh
WLSC Race Captain
