Gobble! Gobble! Gobble! The annual NSC Turkey Trot Pursuit race and Thanksgiving Feast is one of the more popular social and race events on the club calendar. This is a pursuit race where the fastest boats start after the slowest boats. All NSC boats and other Lac Deschenes club boats welcome. Don’t need race registration, don’t need a handicap certificate.
Basically it is once or twice around the Racing Circle marks and first boat home wins the day. Of course, the slowest boats get to start first to even things up. Even if you’ve never raced, this is a fun day out and a great way to get out one more time before the end of the season, so come out and join the fun.
Turkey sandwiches with all the fixings are provided for all participants post racing while we all “hand sail” the day at the bar. Our thanks to our volunteer member Turkey/Ham/Vegetarian cookers and food preparers!
Awards: Leon’s TV Trophy – first boat across the line. Turkey draw prizes (Farm Boy Gift Cards). Keepers at awards night for the top three finishers in each of spinnaker keelboat, white sail keelboat, dinghy/cat.
