Summer is the best time of year to sail at Lake Merritt. Vickie Gilmour and her crew did a great job running the Mayor’s Cup Regatta this year on Sunday, June 30th. The first race started at noon. Offshore starts. Four races. Gordie Nash won with three firsts and a third. Tom Burden was second with three seconds and a fourth. Chris Sullivan finished third. Tony Su sailed very fast when he was going in the right direction. Paul Zander sailed the boat belonging to Pete Blasbert, our 103 year old emeritus El Toro sailor, who’s still going strong.


The Lake Merritt folks are really hoping they’ll get a great turnout for the first race of their FIRST SUMMER/FALL SERIES REGATTA on July 20th. 


Kudos to Chris Sullivan for jerry-rigging a car top carrier on top of his wife’s Subaru!
