* 2024 LARC Winter Race Series *

Race #1, Sat Jan 6
(NOR and other races to be posted)


Excerpt from LARC email 10/6/23}

Just a reminder of the LARC race on Sat, Oct. 7.  Skipper’s meeting at 11am at the LLSC clubhouse and race will start at 1pm at X island. 


I will be videotaping the race again with another expert who will make observations about sail and boat trim.  We will have a “dirt up” after the race at LLSC where we will have snacks and showing the videotapes from that day’s race.


Let me know if you need a code to get into the gate (text me 404-849-1809).

See you tomorrow.




{Excerpt from LARC email 9/21/23}

I am very excited about this Fall LARC series.  We have an exciting opportunity for our fellow sailors for this series and a welcome return to the good old days .


But let me start with the fun stuff.  I will be giving out the Fall 2022, Winter 2023 and Moonlight race series trophies on Wed. Oct 18 at the Encore Wednesday night series celebration and awards ceremony.  You don’t want to miss the SUPER COOL trophies that I will be giving out for these events. 


Now to the exciting opportunity of this Fall LARC series.  Many of you remember in the Winter of 2022, Greg Fisher and Greg Griffin followed LARC sailors around the racecourse and took videos of individual boats and make comments on sail trim and boat handling.  It was quite enlightening but sadly it took almost 4 months for us to see these videos.  I loved the idea and talked to some of the most experienced and respected sailors on the lake and asked if they would do the same for each race of the LARC Fall series races and got many positive responses.  For those of you who would like to see those videos, follow the link


This Sunday will be the first race of the Fall LARC series sponsored by Lake Lanier Sailing Club.  We will have the skipper’s meeting at 11am at LLSC in the “B” gravel parking lot (turn left at the 4 way stop), this is where many people gather before Wednesday night races.  Please let me know by Saturday, if you plan to sail and if you need a gate code to get into the sailing club.


And for the first time in 2 years we are going to have an after party or “dirt up” at the LLSC clubhouse.  Snacks will be provided as we watch the videos of the participants in the LARC race.    I will be driving the powerboat for my sailing expert as he gives practical advice for each of our competitors.  I am very excited about all the sailing talent we have on this lake and look forward to some great advice and/or verification of our sailing abilities from our expert.


PLEASE JOIN US AT LLSC after the race for snacks, camaraderie and a video commentary from our expert.

I will not be at the skipper’s meeting, but Jonathan Stewart has graciously stepped up to run the skipper’s meeting.  I will be sailing in the Flying Scot Regatta this weekend, but I will hop from my FS to a power boat to help our guest videographer.


Look forward to seeing you on the race course,
