Happy New Year!


The 2014 season is just a few weeks away. 

April will be here in soon! 

Hang in there.

Alas, the DLYC is closed for the 2013 season!


We hope that you had a great season.  As usual, we’re all a little sad to end the summer but it makes it all the more special when we get to open in April.

Some groups continue to meet regularly, however.  If you’re a euchre player or book enthusiast, ask about how to join in.

Have a great fall and winter!

2013 DLYC Bruce Goldsmith Memorial Regatta Results

Bruce Goldsmith

Memorial Regatta

Devils Lake Yacht Club

September 14 – 15, 2013





The Bruce Goldsmith Memorial Regatta, held September 14 & 15, was the 70th consecutive annual regatta hosted by Devils Lake Yacht Club. 21 Lightnings & 16 Sunfish arrived to find cool temperatures, abundant sunshine and no wind. After 2 on shore postponements Saturday’s racing was cancelled. The afternoon was spent catching up with old friends, telling Bruce stories, having a few beers, martins & stingers, watching football and the old young guys having an onshore spinnaker raising/dousing competition. Evening entertainment included dinner in the club, live music and planning how to crash the ongoing wedding & reception on the side lawn.

Sunday morning arrived with cool, light, southerly winds. The race committee, headed by Merrill Bales, managed to get in 5 races. Team Dieball,(Ernie + Jacqueline, Carrie Houtman, North Cape Yacht Club) in the Lightnings & Dan Norton (Devils Lake Yacht Club) in the Sunfish showed their starting prowess in the highly favored pin end starts, each handily winning their respective fleets. In the Lightnings runner up was James Taylor (Carl Taylor, George Auer, Cowan Lake) & 3rd Surge Vanderhorst (Grace & Glenn Hummer, Sandusky). Sunfish runner up was Ron McHenry (Pymatuning) followed by Leland Brode (Lake Bluff.)

Competition for the “Better to be Bad & Colorful than Dull & Mediocre” award was somewhat muted as the “Spinnaker Ninja” team of Try Rose, Anneliese Kittrell & Mike Garza won going away. Special mention went to the Bruin like behavior of defending champ John McCree who arrived last minute with no crew & no place to stay and would have been top 3 except for a last race OCS. Bruce would have been proud.

There will be more weather next year. Guaranteed. Hope to see you here.

Dave Laidlaw, Regatta Chair
