Lake Davenport Sailing Club

Cancellation of the 
2018 Polar Bear Regatta.

A note from the LDSC
"Unfortunately the 2018 sailing season at Lake Davenport Sailing Club has continued to be met with challenges. As of today, the river level is at 13.69 feet and rising. It will be at or near flood stage by this weekend. We kind of like sailing when the river stage is about 8 or 9 feet!!
So, the bad news is that the Polar Bear Regatta is officially cancelled for 2018. The Mississippi River has won. Hopefully, next year will be better.
See you next year!"
There is still time

A Discussion

From Andrew Bohl, NCSSA President

My fellow C-Boaters, as many of you know, this year at a few of the larger regattas the fleet has had issues getting clean starts off. This led to numerous general recalls, Z flags, and black flags. Nobody wants this. It limits the number of races we can get in, makes the days longer, and is generally undesirable. The question is, what do we do about it?
Posted on the Home Page at there is an open letter to the C Fleet written by long-time C-Boater Kent Haeger and NCSSA Treasurer Will Haeger. In the letter they state what they believe are the primary causes and possible solutions for the "General Recall Problem". They also attached a letter from Tufts sailing coach and long-time PRO Ken Legler with his thoughts on General Recalls.
We have turned on the ability for you to comment on their letter found on the website. We encourage your feedback in the hopes of starting a dialogue and working towards a solution. All C-boaters and judges are strongly encouraged to read the letter and contribute to the discussion. Let's get this fixed.
