    Summer Fun
    July 2005


    Welcome to the Torresen Marine e-Newsletter. Each month we will publish seasonally relevant and practical information for sailors. The July issue is about summer fun. We hope to provide something for everyone from the casual dingy sailor to the serious offshore racer.

    As always, we look forward to your comments and suggestions. We are also interested in what topics you would like to see. Email theTorresen Sailing Newsletter to let us know what you think.

    Not Enough Sailing?
    by John Schumacher

    Not enough sailing? Enough fun you say? Check us out on Tuesday nights at the Muskegon Yacht Club around 5:30 from now until September. This group of JY15 and Laser sailors has been turning the buoys for some time now. They generally get in four races an evening so you can see how someone might hone their starting skills or just figure out how to keep the mast out of the water. In just over an hour you'll see it all; tight little courses for quick racing, grilled dinners waiting at the dock, and a general fun time had by all.

    What's so fun about sailing???
    by Gordon Torresen

    Ask any sailor what they like about sailing and you usually get a different answer. There are those who enjoy the excitement and those who cherish the serenity. Some like a small boat close to the water and others would prefer a very large boat that is usually high and dry. Some go for racing in tight quarters and some take pleasure in distance racing. Many sailors relish cruising and make short hops from port to port whilst others leave on a cruise and prefer to anchor out, not setting foot on land for weeks and there are those who sail around the world solo and a small group who do it non-stop.

    With the peak of summer sailing season upon us, Queens Cup, Mac's etc. let's not forget not all race. Some folks like to cruise and explore. For these folks here's a list of nautical attractions they can take in while ashore. They range from a German Submarine in Chicago to a Frensel Lenses on the shores of Bay de Noc. Racing or cruising may the winds be at your back, or in lieu may your diesel be strong!

    Maybe you sailed as a child but have not sailed in years. Maybe you've never sailed before but have always longed to learn. Maybe you sail on a regular basis but would like to be certified. It is time to go to sailing school.
