Single Handing the Sweetwater Seas

Recommended Posts

Thought this might interest a few. Today the Great Lakes Single Handed Society started the Trans-Erie - roughly 320 nautical miles up and down the Lake. 


It's an interesting web site, shows boat positions and (with Windytv player) what the conditions are like. Our club has three of the 17 boats entered, and they seem to be doing well so far. Go Russ, Lease & Rob !!

Our guy Russ Krock is in first place after 31 hours.


His "Schock and All" is a Schock 35, US phrf rating of 72. It is a fast boat, and of course he will owe time to others, such as Lease on his Tartan Ten "Avatar" - phrf of about 126. 


Russ single hands it a lot - including flying the spinnaker by himself. 


Don't know if any Kiwis sail with the GLSS - they would be welcomed
