Texoma Sailing Club
Welcome to Texoma Sailing Club! Just one hour north of the hustle and bustle of the D/FW Metroplex lies this largely undiscovered outdoors and sailing paradise.
If you like to sail – or think you might like to give it a try – we encourage you to contact Texoma Sailing Club or come visit our facilities.
Congratulations to all 18 crews who braved the heat and competed in the 2013 edition of the Tommy Wunderlick Classic Regatta. This year, our friends from Rush Creek Yacht Club were the class of the event with Brian Taylor's Rented Mule running away with a win in the spinnaker class and Mike Jones' Wings edging out Mike Meinhardt on his J/92s TBD for first in the cruising class.
TSC Flotillas continue to be a great – and popular – option for sailors who want to get their toes wet in racing. This year, for the first time, the Wunderlick offered a Flotilla option where skippers could start whenever they were ready and their elapsed time on the racecouse would be handicapped by each boat's PHRF rating to determine the chamption. Out of a fleet of seven boats, two champions were named. In the cruising division, Jack Montani and the crew of Solstice were the winners. In the Leisure division, afer 12.5 miles of racing the winner was decided my a mere 48 seconds with Dave Dealy on his Jeanneau 43 Rosario barely squeeking by Commodore Pete's Wisc Me Away.
All competitors would like to extend our special thanks to the Race Committee headed by Larissa Nichols who stayed up late to ensure we call could enjoy a fun, fair and safe regatta.

SAILSTICE FLOTILLA / ASBURY SMITH CUP
Denison, TX (June 24, 2013) – Ten boats turned out this past weekend to challenge for bragging rights at the annual SAILstice Flotilla / Asbury Smith Memorial Cup hosted by Caney Creek Yacht Club. Althought the day offered gorgeous weather and spirited breeze, perhaps the most gratifying aspect was having four boats from Caney Creek join in on the fun. The race featured a "measured pursuit start" where boats started (slowest to fastest) at a "suggested" time based on their handicap. However Race Committee took each boat's actual time when they crossed the start line for the race/time calculations to make starting even easier on participants.
The race began with a two mile beat from Grandpappy Point Marina over to the east side of the lake. After turning the weather mark, it was a gorgeous 8 mile spinnaker run to the finish line. In the cruising spinnaker class, Butch Weinberg unfurled Terra Nova's blue chute and blazed down the track for first place. In the cruising class, it was neck and neck between Gary Witt's My Blue Heaven and Bill Nichol's Trust right to the finish line, but when the actual start times were factored in, the win -- and the rum barrel challenge trophy -- went to Trust. Results here.
Afterwards, competitors enjoyed a swim at Caney Creek and dinner and awards presentation hosted by our friends at Caney Creek Yacht Club. With the conclusion of the SAILstice Flotilla, Texoma Sailing Club will officially go into cruising mode until the big Wunderlick Regatta Labor Day weekend. Have a fun, safe summer!
