LBSS Amazing Race - FunD Raising
Saturday July 8, 2017 – We thank our generous donors, student volunteers, and participants who supported the Amazing Race. Twelve teams of eight players received their instructions during a competitors briefing at the LBYC. Teams then boarded pontoon boats with designated LBSS drivers. Five local properties were designated as sites for skill challenges. At the sites, twelve sailing school students were allocated to each site where they assisted with docking of boats and timing for each of the nine challenges. While driving back to the yacht club, teams did their best to answer thirty one Lake Beulah trivia questions. Correct answers generated time credits, reducing each team’s skill challenge aggregate time. Congratulations to the winning race team – Lindy’s Crawlers. Top Trivia Team was Red Eye.
Below are links to the final results, trivia questions/answers, and a few photos from the event.

X-Treme Regatta – OSHKOSH
July 17 & 18, 2017 – Four races were completed over two days. On Monday, the students found light winds on Oshkosh, best known for its big waves and breezes. Tuesday's conditions were closer to expectation - 10 to 15 mph and wave action, making for a perfect training experience for all our of X students. Jonah and Chandler won the regatta with no worse than a 7th place race finish. Bridget and Caroline won a race and finished fifth overall. With fifty boats on the starting line, Xtreme was a good event for sailors to practice their start, find and maintain clear lanes, and set up at marks for clean roundings.
