The Payton Regatta!

Back-to-back races on Sat/Sun at 10 a.m. The Sunday races count as part of the Summer Series (unless expressly stated otherwise in the SSIs).

The Payton Regatta Potluck Picnic is at 6 pm on June 16th.
Maple Bluff Beach House
365 Lakewood Blvd
Madison, WI 53704

The club will provide the steaks and Grant & Brian will bring baked potatoes. (This picnic is a free event for members. Non-member guests are welcome for a small fee.)

For the Potluck we're suggesting that members bring a dish to pass:
If your last name begins with the letter:
A - H salads
I - O desserts
P - Z appetizers
(but, if you have a specialty, feel free to disregard this suggestion).

And this season, we're trying something a little different in coordination.
We've requested that specific fleets & people take responsibility for certain tasks for the event.
The E-scow fleet: Bring Grill(s) for the meat
The MC fleet: Purchase and pick up the steaks from UW Provisioners - (plan for about 90 people. The club will reimburse)
The Keelboat Fleet: Bring Baked potatoes & Condiments for potatoes.
Hoofer boats: Ice, refreshments, ice chests, plastic ware & paper goods

On Sunday, after the races, the awards will be presented at 3 pm at Burrows Park.

We'll need a person(s) with a truck or SUV to pickup the beverage coolers after the Saturday potluck, and then bring them to Burrows Park on Sunday. And, after the Burrows event, bring the coolers back to the maple Bluff Marina.

Bill Ward’s Legacy Lives On

Bill Shelton was the main caretaker for Bill Ward after his accident on RC 1 in 2006. Since Bill Shelton passed away 5 months before Bill Ward, there was a need for someone else to look after Bill Ward’s affairs...


Spring Banquet on May 12th!

Club members and guests celebrated the beginning of summer and the upcoming sailing season with fellow sailors at the 2018 Spring Banquet on May 12th. Commodore Gorwitz has graciously hosted the banquet at his home once again.


That's All Folks!

The final races of the Fall Series were a great success. With winds 10-15 with gusts over 20 knots, it was a fun ride!
