Brave high school sailors launch their vessels from Put-in-Bay Yacht Club and immediately feel the surging power of twenty-knot wind gusts out of the South-Southwest. The air temperature hovers around 51°F as the 420’s gather at the start line for the first windward leg–heading toward Miller Marina from the harbor channel entrance.
Immediately, balance control becomes complex and boats capsize. Coach boats speed over to assess safety concerns, but the sailors prove resilient and right their crafts. Competition is fierce and skills prove their integral part of success. A few fall victim to the dreaded DNF and a winner is announced. Soon, another group of sailors set their sights on the prize and give it their all. Such is an exhilarating Saturday at the races!

Canadian Coast Guard Cutter Limnos arrives in Put-in-Bay at 12:26pm on Thursday. It departs at 12:49pm, after appearing to take a sounding and sharing a brief communication with Miller Boat Line ferry, Islander, on VHF channels 16 and 8.
The vessel’s name originates from “limnology,” the study of inland waters with emphasis on biological, chemical, physical, and geological attributes, according to the CCG. It is Canada’s principal research ship in the Great Lakes. The 1968 ship is classified as “Mid Shore Science Vessel” and has Burlington, Ontario (Lake Ontario), as home port.
