With four races in the books, the 2020 PYC season got off to an exciting start, with excellent turnouts for so late in the summer. The August 24 races were both drifters, with the Tom Tys/John Fisher Thistle drifting away in race 1, and Chips Arend's MC Scow catching f...

The last race of the season was marked by, for once, semi-predictable winds from the usually predictable southwest, though threatening clouds and oncoming lightning caused the second race to be canceled. Tiff Ford in his Scot miffed the start, hit buoy 5, and limped aw...

The late-summer trend of big, unpredictable west winds made the 2019 Senior Regatta, with its 4-races-over-2-days format, a test of strength, skill, endurance and sheer stubbornness. Tom Tys and John Fisher, on their legendarily fast Thistle, Paul Belleville, on his ra...

The 2018 Piseco Yacht club season came to a happy ending on Saturday, August 25, with the Awards dinner held at Leroy and Jan Cooley's exclusive Pizza Shack and Great Camp. Gentle boasting, subtle bragging, beer, wine and homemade pizzas, created in the Cooley's toweri...

We've alway said that a well-sailed Sunfish can win all the marbles, if we had any marbles. And Peter McIlroy proved it again in the 2017 season, posting great consistent finishes, often in high-wind, challenging conditions, to take the 2017 Variety Class Championship....

How was July 2017 on Piseco? The answer, my friends, was blowing in the wind. Lots of entries, including a raft of tough Sunfish competitors, battled and enjoyed winds at or above 15 mph, resulting in some great races, a raft of breakdowns and DNFs by usually reliable...

The first race of the 2017 Summer Season got off to a hard-blowing, 15-mph start, running on Sunday after a Saturday downpour. David Belleville, still hot from his victory in the 2016 Sunfish Cup, was the class of the field on his 'fish, often planing in the rough, wil...
