Pumpkin Regatta


Sunday, October 23:

There was nothing scary about the Pumpkin regatta - it was all treats and no tricks! Sunny skies and seasonal temperatures greeted the 20 teams that came to Grosse Pointe from all over the state of Michigan. Racing started in a 3-5 knot westerly breeze. Wind increased to 8-12 knots and came from the south at midday, with 1.5 to 2 foot waves. The wind direction remained steady, but faded back to 3-4 knots by the end of racing. A and B divisions both completed eight races. The sunshine and warmer temperatures made for ideal spectator conditions on the sea wall, and a large crowd of families and teammates enjoyed watching the racing.

Tier 3 regattas are all about learning and having fun, and the Pumpkin regatta provided an abundance of both. Several schools worked together to form mixed teams, and middle school students sailed with some of the high school teams.

Congratulations to the first place team, East Grand Rapids Pioneers. Congratulations also go to the second place team, Grosse Pointe South Blue Devils Mixed, and to the third place team, Cranbrook Kingswood Blue.

A huge thank you to co-PROs Norm Samra and Gretchen Carron, everyone helping out on the water and land, regatta chair Harold Stackpoole, Scorer Kathy Johnson, MISSA East Rep. Lynn Frikker, and the hospitality team led by Torrey Stackpoole.
