The season is over for the Wisconsin Stern Steerers Association. Here’s the Stern Steerer kid to help give the season a send-off.
Regrettably the Wisconsin Stern Steering Association regatta has been cancelled for this season. Perhaps there will be some early ice in December that might allow us to race for the 2019 season. In the meantime you have all summer to fix those nagging problems, or for some of us, to finish the new boat so it is ready for early ice. Keep your runners sharp!

The flag dropped at 9:10 AM Saturday and the Nites were able to complete 3 races in each fleet before the wind shut down and the ice became crusty. Racing begins at 9 AM this morning. Time to head to the lake and see what the day brings!

Hotel info: Due to Spring Break and High School Basketball State Tourney, we are having a hard time finding Lodging… We are suggesting finding your own hotel. There will not be a central hotel for all to stay. Plenty of hotels with rooms available, but not one that can block off a huge # of rooms for us.
