Put-in-Bay appears to be just the right harbor for youth to develop on-the-water skills. Today’s observation features participants of the Put-in-Bay Yacht Club Swim-Sail program and goslings at Gibraltar’s Stone Lab.
Put in Bay Pooch Parade, held on Saturday morning June 13th, found four-legged, furry friends gathered together to display their character and charm. From big to small, these furry friends marched with ease. They were proud and barked all the way through DeRivera Park. Morning breeze blowing and sunshine glowing made for a magical morning. The annual parade is a beautiful event bringing the community together with their loyal companions.
Mills Trophy competitors raced between nine and fourteen hours, depending on vessel class, through the night Friday into Saturday morning. Weary but enthusiastic sailors filled the docks around 7:30am! Preliminary scoring is available at yachtscoring.
Mills Trophy Race, presented by the Toledo Yacht Club and Storm Trysail Club and held annually in early June, will hear the starting gun at 5pm today. According to the event organizers, “The race is open to the following classes: PHRF, JAM, Double-Handed, Multi-Hull and Classics. The three courses offered, depending on class and boat rating, all begin near the Toledo Harbor Light and end at a finish line off of South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay).”
This week, the barge CROW rests inside Put-in-Bay Harbor at night after a full day’s work along South Bass Island’s west shore. Nestled in-between the mooring field and Gibraltar Island, CROW floats massive equipment with the somber stillness of a sleeping giant. One must imagine the crane’s dinosaur-like growl . . .
