A treasured image from the archives: the famous Sea Fox in 1915.

And here is a video of some Portage Lake sailing, done by Mark at Defined Visuals. Thanks Mark!

This year's Champagne Regatta was unique due to covid restrictions. Winds in the first race were light but then filled in to make the perfect race day on Portage Lake. Nine boats came out to race and a couple other club boats were out to spectate. Lotsa laughs were had on Zoom as "awards" were presented. All in all, it was a fun, safe regatta making the best of pandemic times.

OYC racing in the 70's. Photo shows George Ellison's E-Scow about to dump on Ralph Hodek's Chrysler 22, with Randy Smith Taser getting into some bad air. Note that Blue Bear has a reefed main, a small job, and a chute ready at the bow. Estimated wind speed is 20+. Good fun!
