Racing Workshop Aug 11, 2019  Leland

Racing Workshop - Aug 3, Saturday 1:00 - 4:00

Present were....
  Neil Gast
  Marius Satas
  Terry Hinaris
  Bill Perley
  Jerry Sullivan
  Jerome Massiot

The wind was perfect. We got to go out for a few practice races before a big dark cloud headed our way.

- we practiced sitting on the starting line so we all had great starts
- we practiced beating to windward using telltales to make sure are sails were trimmed properly
- we practiced steering downwind using the rudder as little as possible - heal the boat to steer, sail in or out to steer.

Anyone want to paddle Friday if the forecast holds up (70 and sunny)? I'd be bringing my own kayak, as I'm not yet certified to use a club boat. Hopefully this is OK (I'm new). Spent last Summer as a guide for Kayak Chicago working at Montrose beach and tours on the Chicago river. Trained in rescue and related safety. Thanks!

Park District Commissioner Mar 26, 2017  NSYC

Terry Grossberg left us a message on Feb 18 that he'll support Boaters at Park Ave Beach.  On Feb. 25 we asked "What's your specific plan Terry"?   NO RESPONSE.

 
Park District Commissioner Feb 25, 2017  Kayak@NSYC

Terry,

Thank you for your comments, albeit broad, what is your commitment of the protected launch and barge project.  The Barge is crumbling and currently closed.  The barge is critical to all types of boat launching because it provides access to Powerboats, larger Sailboats, PWC and protection from launching directly into heavy surf for smaller watercraft.  At least 20 years old, there is no plan in place, or being publicly addresss, as agreed to by the Park District Board to repair or replace this critical component of Highland Park's only boating facility.  It's great to talk about support and long term commitment to Park Ave Beach but what will YOU do to ENSURE boat launching in 2017 and beyond? Residents and Members want to know - what's your plan? 

 
Kayak Storage Feb 25, 2017  Kayak@NSYC

Park District Commissioner Feb 18, 2017  Terry Grossberg
Hi All: As a 24 year resident of Highland Park who has experienced first hand all the Park Board offers for residents of all ages, income and ability levels, I am uniquely qualified to represent you on the Board. I will NEVER allow anyone to close Park Ave Beach or shut down the boat ramp and I will work amicably with our Sister Governmental Agencies to assure that Park Ave joins Rosewood as another jewel in our crown of beautiful holdings in Highland Park.

Racing Workshop Jul 17, 2015  Leland

We had a great turnout for our Racing Workshop last Saturday, July 11th.  Present were:

  • Michael Homer
  • Mike West
  • Jean Wong
  • Danny Hanna
  • Ben Wernick
  • Diego Ize-Ludlow
  • David Ostrov

It's great to see so many new sailors interested in racing.

We did not get on the water.  There was very little wind and the radar showed approaching storms.  We did a lot of chalk talk on a typical Race Course, Rules around the course, and then rigged a boat to see what the little wind we had would do to the sail.

I hope some of the newer sailors join the Sunday races.

Update on Task Force Press Release Apr 23, 2015  Laura

Here is the link to the press release about the engineering study we are waiting on:  http://pdhp.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Media-Release-Draft-Joint-engineering-study-FINAL.pdf

In regards to the 20 million marina, the local residents voted it down as they didn't want to pay for an enormous marina with excessive traffic. 

WHAT TO DO?  I suggest we build up our numbers again (with sailors, motor boaters, kayakers, outdoor enthusiasts, etc.) and request that the PDHP come up with a moderately-sized marina (like we currently have) and build it on the north beach. It will take money to construct, but not $20 million. It needs to be considerate of the neighbors, not add any additional parking, and accomodate the activities we love on Lake Michigan. 

Other:  Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve Restricted Access: Please write to your Lake County Forest Preserve commissioner before April 28th. Tell them you don't want Plan A or B (http://www.lcfpd.org/preserves/improvement-projects/) which restrict parking and walkability, but you want Plan C (Cohen Plan) or D (As-is).  Tell them you love and enjoy access to Lake Michigan and a Forest Preserve should be available to the public and not restricted so only private homeowners or nearby locals can walk to the site. 

 
marina/20 million Mar 27, 2015  bill tazioli

Sunfish Racing Workshop Aug 21, 2014  Leland

We had our second workshop last Saturday and it was well attended.  I usually arrive at these events and have to wait for interested sailors to show up.  This time there were several sailors waiting for me when I arrived 5 minutes late.

Present were: Mike West, Dave Sogin, Fern Anderson, Emma Homer, Michael Homer, Bill Perley and Lina Garcia.

With the help of drawing pictures on NSYC's giant whiteboard on an easel we talked about going fast - use your tel-tails to make sure your sail is properly trimmed, rules at the start - don't barge (although this term is not in the rule book), and watching for wind shifts.  We rigged our boats, doubled checked everyone's rig, and headed out for some practice races.  It was a perfect west wind.  We did several races, had many winners, and rescued new sailor Lina from ending up in Michigan.

Not to forget those who participated in our first workshop of the season - the following were present on June 28th - Gina Morri, Paul Gugenheim, Roman Shraybman, Chris Buce, and Ronaldo who showed up after his favorite team finished their World Cup game.

4th of JULY PARADE Jun 18, 2014  FAMILY ACTIVITIES
Come decorate boats and ride in the 4th of July Parade this year.  We will have a Sunfish with the Colorful Sunset Sail, filled with kids, a Kayak and SUP on top.  Great Family FUN!
 
We need volunteers!!!
 
We need kid volunteers:  We need kids to help decorate the boats, paint a banner, ride in the Sunfish, and walk the parade.  Kids, bring your squirt guns (or Hydro Bazookas).
 
We need adult volunteers:  We need adults to help the kids, ride in the committee boat, and walk the parade.  
 
We need vehicle volunteers:  We need some nice looking tow vehicles with trailer hitches.  Julie has already volunteered her nice looking black Sienna minivan.  I would like to use her minivan for the committee boat and have some member volunteer their nice looking "young and fun" vehicle (like a Jeep Wrangler with the top down) to tow the Sunfish.
 
Please RSVP  to help out - a great Family Activity!
