There will always be an Ephraim Regatta
Lake Michigan at record water levels…but it’s not too high for the EYC!
The high water level has not deterred the dedicated team at the Ephraim Yacht Club, who under Stacey Rieu’s leadership is preparing for another successful regatta. With tie downs to the dock, our Scots on trailers have had no issue with the water. Competitors with private boats should remember to please bring long, adequate tie down lines (2 for side stays, 1 for bow). Competitors should also plan and be prepared to sail from the dock as quickly as possible after “splashing”. Dock space is tight and the addition of jersey barriers to protect the club house has only made it tighter. Equipment that is not needed for education or the Ephraim Regatta will be moved offsite to accommodate Flying Scots for the regatta. Everyone’s cooperation and understanding is appreciated. Good Luck and smooth sailing to all our competitors!
