Our last regatta of the year was held on October 23rd. While it’s named the “Bonechiller”, we were fortunate to have fair skies and warm temperatures this year. The first race of the day had very light wind which tested the racers light air skills. The wind then picked up which made for better racing. After the six races were completed, Paul Townsend & Jim Rennell finished in first place. Ovidiu Adam & Jane Tucker finished second and Carey Jones & Brian Rubel finished third. Thank you to everyone that turned out, especially PRO George Griswold & Chef Robert Parker for a great lunch.

Our U of M team has two new captains for 2018: Amy Baer and Austin Haag. Amy is a junior studying Computer Science, and Austin is a sophomore in the Ross School of Business. They have both been heavily involved with the team the past few years and looking forward to leading the team.
Our heart goes out to all of those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Please consider making a donation to the charity of your choice.
