The 2017 Race In The Bay For Stein Hospice is now in the record book. It was a fabulous day for a yacht race. Ten intrepid crews ventured on to Sandusky Bay for the 12 NMi. trip around the bay. The wind was strong out of WNW and kept the competition exciting. Four of the six award winners were first time winners!!!! 42 HBYC Club Members crewed in this race and HBYC raised over $1,000 for Stein Hospice again this year. Click here to see the Order of Finish and photos from the race.

"Shooting the Breeze" with Harvey

Keith Kreager and his Classic 24' Richardson by Harvey Rickert

One of our power boat members Keith Kreager, who is also a Charter member of the HBYC,
invited me to ride along with him to the Classic Wood Boat Show in his Classic 24’ Richardson
on Sunday July 16th at Lakeside Chautauqua.  Keith found her submerged in the Cuyahoga River in the winter of 2003.  He chopped a hole in the Ice and raised her, took her home, and
restored her. Keith has entered her in numerous classic boat shows. We had a great day at the
Wood Boat Show looking at the many beautiful wood boats and displays. Check out the photos of our trip by clicking here
