Vol. V No. 1

It looks like a good season in the making In Ephraim. The repairs on 'the clubhouse look great and. the water is up. Fritz Hanselman and Lee Wilson will be giving sailing lessons d.uring the week again this year. The lessons are for any member, so come down to the club and. sign up. Fun is being planned on, off, and in the water. Besid.es the regula;r races, "just for funlt races will be held.. Team races, balloon collection races, relay races and moonlight races are on the agenda. Since food is almost as important as racing., sailing picnics are also ahead. For those who don't like to t r-us the winds, there will t be .water skiing activities. On land you can look forward to game nights and. scavenger hunts. Fritz and Lee will do the planning, but it is up to the EYC members, particularly the younger ones, to make the activities worthwhile. Come down early and enjoy yourselves I

Because of the increased activities around. the Club House last summer, the Board of Directors felt it advisa.ble to increaee the usable space of the Club House. The porch is being enclosed so that the inside area is almost doubled, and it is expected. that many more Junior Fleet activities will be going on at the Yacht Club this summer. The Ephraim Regatta is scheduled for the weekend of August 3-4. Plans for the most successful regatta yet are being made by Bob Davis, Regatta Chairman. . The 5th District (Midwest) Flying Scot Regatta is scheduled for Clear Lake at Ray, Indiana on July 13-14. John Zimdars won third in this rega.tta last year when it was held in Ephraim. We hope that Fleet 44 will have a good representation at the regatta. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers indicate that the lake level will be higher this summer than it .has been for some years. While this may increase the problem of surge in the harbor, it should make for better.sailing. The Ephraim Marina has been sold by Anchor Sam to Vince Rohlf and Karl Kuehn. We understand. that they are making certain improvements. (can't. on next page)

MORE FROM THE CO~MODORE Yacht club members who desire mooring space !'llong the Club dock should communicate with Commodore Ben Hanselman. Dues statements have recently been mailed by Bill Clay, Treasurer, and we hope that payment will be made promptly by all members


It is a somewhat tattered truism that in a hotly contested racing class almost any of the skippers could win.

REMEMBER THE MIZPAH ? Once a familiar sight around Ephraim and Little Sister Bay, the luxury yacht Mizpah was sunk April 9th in 85' of water off the coast of Palm Beach, Florida. The owner of the 185t 550 ton vessel is Eugene M. Kinney, a summer resident of Fish Creek. The sunken yacht should -' ,. encourage habitation of fish and thus contribute to the reef sport fishing program. Kinney purchased the yacht in 1967 when he received word that it had a broken crankshaft and could no longet continue to operate. It 1s est1mated that the vessel traveled over e1ght million miles during her career, which included serv1ce as an anti-submarine ship with the Atlantic fleet during WW II. EYC YOUTH ROUNDUP
