Banks Blackwell Invitational


Saturday, September 20:

Great day on the water at the Banks Blackwell Invitational Sailing Regatta at the Culver Academies on Lake Maxinkuckee. Winds were steady from the south, and continued to build during the day, though the sun was out, the weather was warm, and the sailing was fast. At approximately 2pm, the winds built to the point that races were postponed and ultimately abandoned for the day. Four races were completed in each division. Fortunately, everyone was off of the water ahead of several severe storms.

Culver wants to thank the race committee composed of members from the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club as well as the schools/clubs that brought 420's: Spring Lake, Sheridan Shore Sailing School, Grand Haven, Lake Forest, and Chicago Yacht Club.

Sailors enjoyed a taco dinner and camaraderie at the conclusion of the day.

Sunday, September 21:

The winds shifted from south to west by Sunday morning, and continued to stay at levels slightly below those seen on Sunday. 3 more races were completed in each division, finishing us up with 8 races per division.

Congratulations to Detroit Country Day School for winning the 2014 Banks Blackwell Invitational Sailing Regatta!
