Wednesday Night Fun Races

The Wednesday night fun races have begun. Races start about 7:00 PM each Wednesday, and the series will run through Labor Day. Come sail your own boat or crew for someone else. If you have questions or would like to help run the races contact Chris Dukeminier.

First Friday Party

The Pier Rears for Entertainment, Prater and Nancy Monning , will sponsor a party the first Friday of each summer month through August. The parties will be very casual with hors d'oeuvres, soft drinks, a specialty drink of the night, and light entertainment. Cost will be $5 per person. Come out and enjoy the beautiful evenings on White Rock with your favorite friends from 6 – 9 PM.

Those of us who missed the First First Friday party can redeem themselves by showing up at the Memorial Day Eve party on May 26. Yet another opportunity arises on June 7. Come share the fun.

May 11 - Special Olympics

The Third Annual White Rock Special Olympics Regatta will be raced on Saturday May 11, 2002. . Sailor-volunteers are needed to be unified partners, do race committee, or just to come out and be a cheerleader! Please contact Joni Seifrick at 214.553.0005 or or if you are interested in participating.

Laser Fleet News - As anyone on the lake can see, we have a dedicated and active Laser fleet sailing at least once per week. We can be found sailing at any time of the year from January when it is blowing 25 or in July when there is minimal wind to be found. We are always looking to add to faces and meet new people. There is no pre-requisite to sail with us, just hop in a Laser and have fun. We have sailors of all ages and all skill levels helping to further develop what is one of the most competitive fleets in the state.

On May 18 and 19, most of us will be competing in the Spring Dinghyfest at Rush Creek YC. The following weekend we will be at the Lynn Creek Regatta on Joe Pool Lake. This kicks off a series of regattas that are coming up in the spring and summer months. For more information, I can be reached on my Laser, or send me an e-mail at

See you on the water,

Chris Henkel

What's New on the CSC Website

Special Olympics information is in the Race Notices page. Additional info on the Women’s Racing Program and the new schedule for the Juniors sailing camps with the registration forms was added. A page listing Snipes available for sale or lease was added. Other fleets can add similar information if they will send it to the webmaster.

The CSC Membership Roster has been updated with the information received during the renewal process. The password has been changed to the work boat combination on the back of your 2002 membership card. To print the roster, put in a large "Page Size" (e.g. 500) and the entire roster will be displayed. This allows you to print the entire roster.


Details on the juniors sailing education program, adult sailing classes, Wednesday night fun races, the new first Friday parties at the dock, and the Special Olympics regatta can still be found on the website.

The new 2002 - 2003 Sunday Race Sailing Instructions and the Race Calendar also remain on the site. The new Sailing Instructions became effective April 7. Note that the Sailing Instructions now require a red flag for protests.
