Three of our juniors, Casey Ruppen, Callie Ruppen, and Elaina Garrett spent this past Saturday as guests of the Alum Creek Sailing Association. The 1st Traveler Series Race was hosted by Buckeye Lake YC.
The Traveler Series Races are a highly competitive series of one day regattas that juniors from Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Michigan participate in. Each Saturday they sail anywhere from 3 to 7, individual 45 minute races. Scores from each race and each weekend are added together and used to determine overall champions, with the top 6 each awarded trophies at the season's final race.
And this year's seasons final Traveler Series Race hosts are... you guessed it, US! BERLIN YC will once again host.
If you have never seen one of these events, it's a site to behold, 100 sailors in 4 different type of boats on two large race courses. Even if you can't volunteer, stop by the club and take in the excitement of this outstanding event sailed by the future of our sport.
Ask Elaina, Callie and Casey how the racings going the next time you see them!
