Crescent Sail Yacht Club awards a perpetual trophy to the boat which logged the most miles on the water annually now for the sixth year. This particular trophy is named the CSYC Logged Mileage Trophy in honor of “Sayonara” and Commodore Charlie Todd and Barb Schmid. They spent 11 years on Sayonara traveling down the eastern shore of the US and venturing onto Europe. Charlie and Barb kept their rudder true and stayed the course on their long journey. They traversed to 17 countries and logged over 25,000 miles. We feel this trophy is a commendable tribute to their adventure and we proudly have placed their names on it.
In second place was John Walton on his Express 27 ‘Riptide’. John is an avid solo sailor and last summer participated in the Chicago to Mac race and the Trans Superior along with the Lake St Clair solo and other events. His total was 1,070 nautical miles. He plans to do the Lake Erie Solo (312nm) and Lake Ontario Solo (300nm) races next year which will complete a race on all five Great Lakes. Congratulations to John on mastering this extreme sport with very commendable results.
In 1st Place this year was “As You Wish” owned by Commodore Dave and
Anne Simon. Dave also is a very competent and competitive sailor. This past summer
“As You Wish” competed in the Chicago to Mac Race, Port Huron to Mac Race, many
delivery hours, a number of Lake St Clair races and enjoyed many casual evening
out on the lake. Dave finished the season with 1,940 nautical miles. PC Charlie Todd and Barb convey their
heartiest congratulations to “As You Wish” for winning the trophy.
