Rachel Bellis: Thank you crew

Thank you crew

During the weekend of Aug. 1, the Steamboat Scowboys pulled off their 14th annual MC Scow regatta at Steamboat Lake State Park. We had a small field of boats this year, and after two days of tight, competitive racing in challenging light air conditions, our buddy Ray Kuntz took our trophy home to Lake Lotawana, Missouri.

Our little regatta is unique; we have no clubhouse, and no war chest to pay for expenses. The couple of us MC sailors who live up here get it organized. MC sailors and their families come in from out of town or out of state to chip in with us, and we all make it happen. We do it because Steamboat Lake is a beautiful place to sail, and it's a blast.

This year, we had a fabulous campsite barbecue catered by Hayden's own Steve Carlson, great attention and service from Carroll Zamzow and her Hahn's Peak Roadhouse crew and outstanding cooperation all weekend from Steamboat Lake Park manager Julie Arington and the whole park crew.

Our thanks go out to all of them and to the volunteers and spectators from the Steamboat Springs Yacht Club and our friends who spent the weekend with us on the water.
