Commodore’s Report

by Elizabeth Bentzen, LCYC Commodore

In a normal year, LCYC would be in full swing Wurstfest mode. Although it is disappointing that there will not be the normal festivities this year, the Club is taking advantage of this time to complete some projects. As many of you know, our Docks and Grounds crew have been working to refloat A-dock. This project involves removing the pavers, lifting a small section of dock, removing the un-encapsulated foam, and replacing it with encapsulated foam floats.

This month, I want to highlight what the Dock and Grounds crew do for our Club on a regular basis. Every morning, they start by walking the docks, looking for any problems. During this walk, they may re-inflate a partially sunken Hydro hoist, check and adjust the tension on marina cables, and identify other issues that need to be tended. They keep the Club nice by mowing, trimming trees, and cleaning the bathrooms. They maintain the pool, not just by vacuuming and adding needed chemicals, but also by repairing the pumps and filters. The water system that provides the Club and cabanas is monitored and maintained by the crew who must maintain certification for managing the water system. These are just several examples of what they do on a daily basis.

In addition to these regular activities, Docks and Grounds has been busy this year with unexpected jobs. They worked very hard on the cable problems; without their quick response and hard work it would have been a much worse situation. They have replaced rotten wood on the super dock, repaired water leaks, and repaired the gate after it was struck by lightning. They have also begun to replace deteriorated rub rails on C and D dock. While this is by far an incomplete list of their responsibilities, I wanted you to know at least some of what they do so you can thank Julian, Rashad and JJ for all their hard work when you encounter one of them.

After a couple of postponements, what was originally known as the TSA Spring Fling Youth Regatta was aptly renamed “Canyon Chaos” and was finally held October 17th and 18th. About 50 kids participated. Congratulations to Chris and Debbie Fogle for hosting a successful regatta, and thank you to the volunteers that made it possible. Also, congratulations to Debbie Fogle on her 3rd year in a row to receive a Silver Certification from Sailors for the Sea for the regatta.

The Board is currently considering options for the annual meeting. We want to have a meeting that complies with the bylaws and also protects members’ safety. Stay tuned for more information and please consider mailing in your ballots. I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Stay healthy and wear your mask!

Welcome New Members

Port Captains

by Margaret McGill and Mindy Rogers, Co-Port Captains

Several LCYC members took advantage of the opportunity to drive across Canyon Lake Dam on October 18. Even though we’ve walked it MANY times, we’ve never seen the lake from a car on the dam. There were 505 participating cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles!

We appreciate everyone staying safe by wearing your masks and keeping your distance at the club. For the people who do get sick in spite of safety measures, we hope you recover quickly and completely.

See you at the club or on the water!

Series & Event Racing

by Rick Mella, Rear Commodore of Sail

Saturday, Oct 10th, starting the middle of the Fall Keel Boat Series with 23 keel boats registered to race the three month series (7 J-22s, 5 PHRF Spinnaker, 7 PHRF Non-Spinnaker, 2 Big Boat & 2 Multi-Hulls). Skippers & their crews continued to do a good job in following the launching instructions outlined in the Fall Series Notice of Race. Two races were scheduled for Saturday, but again Mother Nature shined brightly and produced very light winds for the 2nd Keel Boat race. Race Volunteers were able to set a Windward/Leeward/Windward finish course in preparation for the first start scheduled for 13:00, (Thank you Nancy & Rolland). Race 1 started in winds recorded at 8-10 mph, coming from the South East direction (LCYC prevailing winds), with most keel boats finishing by 14:35. Race 2 got underway by 14:37, as the winds dropped below 3.5 mph, and 8 keel boats managed to finish on the shorten downwind finished leg.

Sunday’s Board Boat races had really nice weather with 20 board boats registered, (10 Flying Scots, 3 SunFish, 3 Lasers, & 4 Portsmouth). Three races were sailed Sunday, October 11th, with the first Windward/Leeward/Upwind Finish race 1 course sailed twice around (2W). Wind speed at 10 mph, with clear sunny skies and sailing conditions at their peak for beautiful mid-October Canyon Lake sailing. Race 2, started at 14:29, with sailors rounding the W course twice, finishing up by 15:50. Race 3 started at 15:38, where sailors were directed to sail around the W course once, and most agreed that a full day of racing was completed with an exhausted reply.

SHOUT OUT: If you see our LCYC Grounds crew, please stop and give them a warm THANK YOU for the job they do in keeping LCYC grounds and docks in top condition. Below is a photo of Julian Craven (Property Manager), Jimmy Herrera (JJ), Rashad Williams, & Tony Garza (not shown) working on A Dock’s upgrade. Thank you Rick Walker (Grounds Director).

Nominees for 2021 Vice-Commodore and Board of Governors Positions

by Jim Kizziar, Nominations Committee Chair

The LCYC Nominations Committee considered many qualified members for the 2021 Vice-Commodore and Board of Governors positions. In accordance with the Club’s Bylaws, nominations were submitted to the Board of Governors and unanimously approved by the Board. The following nominees are submitted to the membership on behalf of the Board of Governors for approval at the 2020 Annual Meeting.

Nominee for LCYC Vice-Commodore

The Vice-Commodore serves a one year term and has overall responsibility for organizing and conducting the two-weekend Wurstfest Regatta in the Fall. In the following year, the Vice-Commodore serves as the LCYC Commodore.

Bill Clark

Bill grew up in New York and learned to sail on Long Island Sound on the family Sunfish and Cal 25. He moved to San Antonio in 1978 and acquired a Hobie which he sailed on Canyon Lake. Like many sailors, he continued to move up in size and currently sails a Hunter Legend 37.5 from the LCYC marina. Bill and his wife Stephanie joined LCYC in 2011. Bill has participated in every Club work day since joining LCYC, has volunteered with the Adaptive Sailing program, and is an avid racer. He served on the Board of Governors in 2017 and 2018. Bill founded CBS Systems, Inc., a water treatment company, in 1984, and has assisted with the LCYC water system. He also enjoys kayaking, fishing and hunting.

Nominees for LCYC Board of Governors

For 2021, LCYC must fill five vacant Board positions. Board members serve a two year term (2021-22).

Marty Chrisman

Marty began sailing later in life, during a 2006 bare boat cruise in the British Virgin Islands. Once she was hooked on sailing, Marty purchased her own boat and has sailed on Canyon Lake ever since. Marty is also a racer and began participating in regattas as a “community service” so someone else didn’t have to finish last. Marty is a twenty year resident of Canyon Lake and just finished building her dream home near the water. She is a Managing Broker for real estate brokerage eXp Realty where she “herds” 1,000 agents in the South and Southwest. Marty has served in many community and professional volunteer roles, including the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Women’s Council of Realtors, the Bulverde Library Association and North Shore UMC. Marty became a member of LCYC in 2016 after active volunteer and leadership service in that “other club” on Canyon Lake. She has been an active LCYC volunteer, including Wurstfest and Leukemia Cup regattas, assisting with auctions, and working on meal prep in the Galley.

Ann Scott Cook

Ann learned to sail through a Community Boating program on the Charles River in Boston and graduated to sailing larger boats in many locations. She spent thirty years in travel management with two airlines, a cruise line and American Express. Ann moved to Spring Branch in 2010 and joined LCYC in 2014 after years of sailing elsewhere, including the Grapevine Sailing Club in Dallas (where she met Ditty Bag Editor Bill Cook). While a member of Grapevine, Ann served as Second Rear Commodore and organized summer Learn to Sail programs, among other volunteer activities. Ann has been an active LCYC volunteer, serving as Port Co-Captain for two years (2017-18) and filling a vacant position on the Board of Governors for six month during 2019. She is a frequent race committee participant and also assists with Club work days, the Adult Sail Training and Adaptive Sailing programs. Ann and Bill currently have a Catalina 28 in the LCYC marina.

Jim Garity

Jim’s earliest sailing experience was at age 9 when he took his reluctant, water-phobic father out in an Opti at YMCA Camp. Jim skippered and his father survived despite being hit by the boom and losing his favorite hat. Jim claims that his sailing skills have greatly improved through years of racing in the LCYC PHRF and J-22 fleets and day sailing. Jim has spent thirty-five years in the hardware and home improvement industry, including twenty years with Sherwin Williams in various sales positions. After a brief semi-retirement, Jim is again working in sales with Hilti Corporation, a tool and related products manufacturer. Jim joined LCYC in 1989 and has been an active volunteer throughout his membership. He has served for many years on the PHRF Committee and the Membership Committee. Jim currently serves as the chair of both committees.

Vivian Miller

Vivian brings professional and sailing skills to the LCYC Board. She previously sailed in New England for 15 years aboard her Contest 32, cruising to Maine, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island and other destinations dreamed of by Texas sailors. More recently, she sails her Ericson 23 from the LCYC Marina. Vivian’s professional background includes more than thirty years with the international accounting firm of KPMG LLP, specializing in tax issues and implementation of KMPG’s tax technical and administrative systems. Vivian joined LCYC in 2017 and has been an active volunteer, serving on Race Committee during 2017-18, completing the Club Level Race Management Course, and serving as Port Co-Captain for two years (2018 and 2019). She has served in community volunteer positions with Mystic Shores POA, including the Conservation and Architectural Control Committees and as Treasurer during 2017-19.

John Ruiz

John began sailing in the 1990’s. While living in New Orleans, he was a member of the South Shore Yacht Club, where he was active in racing and cruising. John participated in the Club’s offshore racing program, including the Regatta del Sol between Pensacola and Isla Mujeres (near Cancun, Mexico). He was also an active volunteer, serving on Southern Shores Board of Directors in 2003 and 2005. Following Hurricane Katrina, John relocated to New Braunfels and was active in that “other club” on Canyon Lake, serving as Vice Commodore and Treasurer. John is a retired machinist and shop supervisor. Many members have worked with John in his “retirement business” of boat canvas creation and repair. John joined LCYC in 2012 and has been active in club racing. He has volunteered for many Club events, including Wurstfest Regattas.

Nominations Committee

The LCYC Nominations Committee is governed by the Club Bylaws. Article II, Section III, of the Bylaws requires that the Committee consist of five voting members of the Club in good standing, including the current Commodore, two members who previously served as Commodore and two members of the Club in good standing. Please join me in thanking the members of the 2020 Nominations Committee, including Commodore Elizabeth Bentzen, former Commodores Phil Crane and Lynn Simpson, and Club members Chris Powers and Jim Kizziar (Committee Chair). Vice Commodore (and 2021 Commodore) Scott Wells participated in Nominations Committee meetings, but was not empowered by the Bylaws to vote on any nominee.

SEW-MAD Regatta 2020

by Debbie Foble

On September 26, 2020, 10 daring LCYC women dominated the lake for a day of great sailing! Due to restrictions adopted in response to COVID-19, we kept entries in this year’s SEW-MAD Womens’ Regatta to boats under 20 feet in length. The seven competing boats made up two fleets – with some very spirited competition.

The weather was beautiful, and the winds were steady out of the south at 10 kts with some gusts up at 15 kts. We were able to get in three races thanks to our great race committee. On the RC signal boat was our PRO Chris Fogle, assisted by Chuck Begley and Caleb Fogle; and Dave Sanford and Rick Walker made up the world-class mark set team. They set the course once and never had to move it.

In the PHRF fleet, we had three teams: Lynn Simpson and Marisa Avila, and Jessica Powers and Maria Wachter in Flying Scots; and Donna Rice and her daughter, Laura Rasmussen, on Chickadee – a Capri 18. Lynn and Marissa took top honors with 3 bullets, though very tight races – the first race being won by 1 second!
In the Portsmouth fleet, Robin Engel, Dayna Fogle, and Susanne Walker raced in Sunfish; and Debbie Fogle on a Laser Radial. Debbie captured 1st place with three bullets, but once again the racing was very close.

Susanne, who took up the Sunfish only the week before the regatta, and Donna were awarded the traditional “Floppy Sail Awards” in their respective fleets.

The regatta was not as large as the previous years, and we weren’t able to hold a big dinner afterwards, but in a crazy world with so few outlets, it was nice to get on the water and race! Our sport offers a wonderful chance to escape and enjoy some normalcy and camaraderie. If you haven’t made it onto the water lately for a race, try it out.

Women sailors of LCYC who sat this year out, be on the lookout for some small boat sail training in the spring and early summer. The 30th Anniversary of SEW-MAD is coming up next September and it will be a great time. Plan now to be to be on the water!

TSA Youth Regatta

by Debbie & Chris Fogle, Regatta Organizers and Co-Chairs

The third time truly was a charm! After twice rescheduling our annual TSA Spring Fling Regatta, Team LCYC provided a much welcome two-days of racing for Texas youth sailors the weekend of October 17-18!

This year, we added the name “Canyon Chaos” to the traditional Spring Fling designation – partly to recognize that it was not Spring by the time we hosted it, and partly to acknowledge the crazy year that is 2020.

Our team hosted 52 youth sailors from around Texas for the weekend of racing. We saw seven divisions racing on three courses – an Optimist Green Fleet for beginning racers; three Optimist competitive divisions; and three Laser divisions representing each of the three rig sizes.

This year we were especially thrilled to have ten LCYC racers! Our sailors included: Ryan Mitchell and Mason Miller racing in Opti Blue and Red divisions respectively; Jack Pickett, Matthew Acock, Tyson Templin, Van Templin, Cai Lockett, Preston Barber, and Parker Barber racing in Opti Green Fleet; and sixth year veteran Caleb Fogle racing the Laser Full for the first time.

Our racers did well in the mixed bag that was the weather. Saturday was light to moderate wind and overcast, while Sunday saw whitecaps and gusts reaching 20-25 kts! While Green Fleet abandoned racing on Sunday shortly after the first start, the Green Fleet got in 7 races for the weekend; Lasers had 8 races for each division – for 24 starts overall; and Opti RWB fleet got in a whopping 10 races!

Tyson Templin was our top finisher – finishing tied with the second-best record in Opti Green Fleet. Mason Miller – competing in his first regatta in the highly competitive Opti Red division – was awarded the Sportsmanship Award for the regatta for his tenacity and effort in the overwhelming conditions on Sunday. Congratulations to all our racers for representing LCYC on a job well done!

This year’s regatta would not have been possible if it were not for our dedicated team of volunteers! Over 45 LCYC members dedicated their weekend to fill positions on Race Committee, three Signal Boat crews, six markset/safety boats crews, Protest Committee, galley, and a ramp safety team. Our tradition of fielding the best volunteer force in all of Texas Sailing Association’s Youth Circuit regattas was proven once again! Thank you to all of our regatta team – the kids desperately needed this event, and your generosity and willingness to help out are priceless!

We also are very grateful for those LCYC members who donated the use of their power boats as safety and mark-set boats – critical elements of a TSA regatta: Scott Wells, Chuck Begley, Travis Grahmann, David Anderson, and Travis Mitchell

Thanks also to our Docks and Grounds crew – Julian, Rashad, and JJ – and D&G Committee Chair, Rick Walker – for ensuring all was set up and ready for the weekend’s activities. And to our Rear Commodore for Sail – Rick Mella – for ensuring all our on-water gear and marks were staged and for launching the crews for us on Saturday.

Finally, we want to thank the LCYC Board of Governors and officers for their support of our desire to host the regatta. Over half of the clubs in TSA made the tough decision to cancel their events in 2020. We are so grateful for the opportunity to host our regatta, and for the flexibility of our members and leadership to make it happen.
Our Team – Supporting our Sport in South Texas!

Please check out the photos from the regatta on the LCYC website. See you on the water!

       

Youth Sailing Regattas

by Travis Mitchell, Youth Sailing

October was a huge month for the Jr. sailors from LCYC. After months of sailing practice, training hard to learn the starting line process, learning different types of race courses and on the water tactics the youth sailing team at LCYC finally had their chance to debut in Denton, TX October 10th and 11th.

Pirates of the Corinthian regatta was the very first TSA regatta for five of the six LCYC sailors that arrived at Lake Lewisville to represent our club at the highest levels. This weekend adventure was not only the first for the kids but the parents too. It took great planning to work all the logistics for traveling with the Optimist boats, towing the coach’s RIB, making sure each sailor had their appropriate sailing gear, booking hotels, and arriving on time to DCYC for check in

After much anticipation, the kids were eager to begin their regatta weekend so after a quick dinner it was off to bed for all of them. Looking at Sail Flow that night the wind forecast for Saturday looked very grim and not conducive to any sort of racing. Nevertheless, one cannot count on wind apps and forecast because anything can happen when it comes to the weather

Saturday morning was met with fog and still air as just over 80 competitors descended on the dew-covered grass of DCYC. For most of the teams there was no huge rush to rig boats as it was highly likely they would announce a postponement after the skipper’s meeting. LCYC’s coach Yam Vidal didn’t cut the kids any slack and worked vigorously with each sailor to ensure their sails were properly assembled and the boats fully rigged and ready to go.

At 9:30 sharp the skipper’s meeting took place on the clubhouse lawn with most people wearing masks and appropriately spaced apart. After the basic course instructions, a no wind postponement was announced just as we predicted.

Over the next several hours all the competitors spread out to play football, volleyball, swim, and shortly after lunch several of the LCYC kids went out on a power boat for some wake surfing. The glass like water made for a great time and even coach Yam got up on the board on his very first try.

With plenty to do the kids never grew bored and by 2:00 PM the horn sounded, and the party was over. There was to be no racing today, so the boats were carefully packed up for the night and off to the hotel we went. The wind forecast for Sunday looked very promising so once again, the kids went to bed early in hopes they would get in a full day of racing before the long haul home. Arriving at the club on Sunday was a whole new experience, far from the day before. Breezy air filled with sun and cool temps quickly warmed up as we labored to assemble the boats and gear up. The line for two boats at a time at the launch ramp became a march of eager kids, parents and coaches as everyone began to enter the water.

Representing LCYC on Opti Blue was Ryan Mitchell who wished his green fleet buddies’ good luck and launched with the rest of his fleet. This was Ryan’s second red, white and blue fleet regatta with the first being eight months prior in Corpus Christi just before the Covid epidemic broke out.

Racing for LCYC on Opti green was Parker Barber, Preston Barber, Tyson Templin, Van Templin and Cai Locket who were some of the last to leave the marina and head for their course. Coach Yam Vidal was right behind the green fleet kids, corralling them like a flock of ducks, to ensure they checked with the committee boat before reaching the starting line.

The wind conditions were perfect with a nice 10 to 12 mph breeze from the North and after five races Tyson Templin ended with an overall second place out of 22 boats. What an impressive first regatta for Tyson! All his hard work, practice and sheer drive to win put him at the top of the board.

Preston Barber brought in a solid 8th place after some top finishes for the day, Van Templin with a very respectable 13th, Cai Locket pulled off a nice 15th place steadily improving with each race with Parker Barber rounding out 21st. Parker’s top score for the day was a very respectable 10th showing everyone he had what it takes to compete! Each of these sailors improved with every race and it was a huge achievement for their parents to watch. It’s worth a mention that these kids have been sailing for about a year, except for Cai Locket, who just joined the LCYC Jr. sailing team, and turned 9 years old about six weeks prior to this regatta. What an impressive young man!

Over on the Opti red, white and blue course the claws were out at the starting line with a general recall right out of the box. Once the sailors calmed down, they were finally able to get underway for five very competitive races.

Ryan’s highest finish for the day was 3rd place in in the fourth race when he passed eleven boats on the final leg of the upwind drive. Ryan finished 10th overall out of 26 boats.

Back on land it was time to pack up, eat lunch (the kids had boxed pizzas) wait for awards and then hit the road back home. A fantastic regatta was in the books and DCYC was a great host!

Fast forward one week to Oct 17th and 18th and it’s now time for the much-anticipated Spring Fling regatta/Canyon Chaos Regatta. The LCYC Jr sailing team was back in action and ready for two days of racing but this time had fellow teammates Jack Pickett, Matthew Acock and Mason Miller joining Optimist team with seasoned sailor Caleb Fogle representing the club on the Laser Full course.

Saturday started with overcast skies, very low wind and at times glasslike conditions on the water. For the 52 sailors entered the slow shifty wind made for some difficult sailing at times. Travis Grahmann, the PRO for the Optimist Green course wasted no time getting the racing going and keeping up a steady pace for the day.

Tyson Templin showed the 18 green fleet racers who was boss with an impressive 3rd place overall after seven races, including a built in race 5. By days end Parker Barber stood in 10th followed by Cai Locket in 11th and the elder Preston Barber in 12th followed by Van Templin in 14th. Matthew and Jack rounded out 17th and 18th in their first regatta ever.

The red, white and blue Opti course was a moving target at times with the racecourse changing length and position after each race. Fluctuating wind speed and shifts made for a tough day for PRO Lynn Simpson who did her best to keep things straight and square. Blue Fleeter Ryan Mitchell struggled at times and simply could not finish consistently in the top ten. Mason Miller got a taste of racing in a real regatta and quickly learned the competition was fierce.

As predicted for day two as the sun came up over the horizon the wind began to blow like a strong day at the coast. Right away on the green fleet course were screams of terror alongside cheers of exhilarating fun as the racers pitch poled and turtled on the downwind leg of the first race. With half the fleet in the water bailing, swimming and getting cold the coaches and parents had their hands full trying to assist. With a very tough decision to make the PRO quickly called it for the day and abandoned any further races. The green fleet kids headed in for the day and were awarded based on the first day’s results.

It’s hard to teach kids all the rules of racing and that protesting or being protested is part of the sport. This was a hard lesson learned for Ryan that not all sailors know the rules of racing and even though someone yells “protest” he needs to do what he knows is right and not fall victim of ignorance or be bullied on the water. After two days Ryan ended up 14th out of 18 boats with some hard lessons learned.

Mason Miller, full of courage and determination completed his first regatta ever and in Red fleet no less. Most kids spend an entire year racing in green fleet before they move up but Mason wanted to compete with kids his age and do his best against them. Even though the other sailors experience was most likely four and five year more than Mason he didn’t flinch when it came time to hit the starting line and go around the course. Even with the brutal wind on Sunday, waves and water in the boat Mason kept his cool and rode it out.

It was great to see Caleb Fogle back out on the Laser course, this time on the Laser Full. With Covid putting a damper on most of the regattas this year there hasn’t been the usual amount of racing opportunities for the older kids. Starting the day off with a positive attitude Caleb powered through the strong winds eventually ending with a broken boat that put him out of the competition early. This is something that can happen to any sailor at any time, it’s just unfortunate the boat demons decided to bite during our own club regatta.

Chocopalooza regatta at Rush Creek Yacht Club is just around the corner, November 14th and 15h and several LCYC Jr. sailors will be there to compete and show everyone their best!
