We had a great turn out for the chili cook off this weekend with a total of 6 pots of chili. They were all very good and Susan Morris won the prize. Bill gets a mention since it was his recipe but he was too busy racing to cook. Good job Morrises! I believe we had around 26 people present. Everyone recited their recipes and it was very interesting to hear. Thanks to Lynnrenee for getting the ball rolling and for everyone else who pitched in to get things set up and cleaned up. Great fellowship. I have attached some photos. (click here)
We also had some awesome wind in which to race. We held two races with 5 boats. What a wonderful day at our club.
Hope to see you at the next event,

The Lake Sinclair Challenge is a fixed-course, self-timed, long-distance challenge open to any sailing vessel on Lake Sinclair.
During the Dec 2005 drawdown, we took a pontoon boat ride out to survey the shallow spots of the lake. We confirmed that there is indeed enough depth and enough room to pass between Hauck’s Reef and the Narrows Island in our sailboats. So we decided to use Hauck’s Reef as the end-mark for the Sinclair Challenge.
Here’s how it works:
- Schedule: You pick the time and date. Any time day or night.
- Eligibility: Anything that is wind powered and legal on Lake Sinclair
- Rules: Racing Rules of Sailing. DNR requirements, etc, apply. Sailors assume all risks.
Best times to-date:
- Start between the No Wake buoy and the metal dock at the club.
- Pass all islands on the river channel side.
- Pass between Hauck’s Reef and the Narrows Island in either direction. If multiple boats are racing, the boat leaving Hauck’s Reef to port shall have right of way. (Be careful)
- Finish at the club between the No Wake buoy and the metal dock.
Course Length: approximately 9 miles, round trip.
Map: Map of Narrows Island->
Prizes: admiration of your fellow sailors, bragging rights, and a nice certificate.
Entry: Send an e-mail or letter to the scorekeeped (Jay.Harrell (at) riverside.net) with the following:
- Start Time – hh:mm:ss
- Finish Time – hh:mm:ss (or exact elapsed time, to the second please)
- Wind direction and wind speed (measured or estimated)
- Boat name and description -*Skipper and Crew Names
