Welcome to the 2019 CRAM sailing season!
New members and returning members alike, I want to sincerely welcome you to our 2019 CRAM Season. First off, I’d like to thank Uli Gollwitzer for his leadership, enthusiasm and commitment to CRAM as Commodore the past two seasons. Additionally, I’d like to thank each CRAM officer and member who has worked hard over the years to make our organization the success it is today. Your commitment to CRAM, to our members and to catamaran sailing is inspiring and truly appreciated. CRAM is a healthy, vibrant, growing and fun organization because of the tireless work and commitment of our past officers and members. I look forward to working with our 2019 officers and all members to build upon theses successes.
Wow…. Another great sailing event for 2014 is in the books. The Tawas location has proven to be a fan favorite for quite a few years, and this year was no exception. Eric Kennedy on race committee ran 2 distance events on Saturday and buoy racing on Sunday for a great mix of different types of racing. Last year Ed and Tara resurrected the distance event format and hopefully this will continue in the future.
In typical Midwest fashion, if you didn’t like the weather just wait five minutes!
We had sunshine, rain, lots of wind, and no wind, forecasted weather for shorts and t-shirts, but turned to warm packs and dry suits - great suggestion from Tara Cunningham!
In terms of the weather, we really saw just about everything, except snow...Thank God!
Saturday morning came and the weather forecast was pretty accurate: Winds around 24 gusting beyond 30 knots! The start got postponed for two hours.
