Labor Day

Photos and Reports by Don Sanford
 
Here's a few photos (below) snapped during the first leg of MYC's annual Labor Day 'round the lake race. Though skies were gray, hopes were high as boats headed from the buoy at Tenney Park upwind towards University Bay.
 
 
Skies started to clear just as the fleet rounded the buoy in University Bay and headed for the open lake near Picnic Point
 
 
The breeze began to freshen as the first boats rounded Picnic Point and headed towards Frautschi Point and the always mysterious winds at the Middleton end of Lake Mendota.
 
 
The Middleton end of the lake lived up to its reputation as the game changer in the Labor Day race. Eagle Heights and the steep Shorewood shoreline creates all kinds of interesting shifts. And the bay off Spring Harbor is one of those spots where you just never know where the wind will blow next. Positions shifted quickly as one boat inched towards shore and another got a big puff and headed out into the lake.
 
 
And, of course there would not have been a Labor Day Race 2010 without the efforts of our PRO Anma Ingena and her assistants Cindy and Laura.
 
 
Spectators always show up to watch our annual Labor Day race. Some even pose for a photo.
  
The first group we encountered today was this group of MYC elders. I'm thinking there's nearly a century of collective Lake Mendota sailing experience (most of it on E Boats) aboard this boat. Pictured left to right are: Ken Schmidt, John Harper, Jack Bolz (Commodore 1970), Dick Ela, Dave Schmidt, Bill Mattison (Commodore 1965) and Bill Bush.
 
The other boat we spotted today was Rich Leppping's picnic launch Claribel.
