CYC Vice Commodore, Bill Kieltyka, at a CSF evening race.
Cobbossee Sailing Fleet
Early Lake Cobbosseecontee history often makes reference to the sailing regattas that began back during the days that trolley cars brought summer visitors to the north end of the lake near Hammond's Grove and Island Park.
The Cobbossee Sailing Fleet (CSF), once actually a part of the CYC, has been for years a separate organization devoted to sailing and still races Thursday evenings during the summer off Molizigan Island . And membership and participation is growing! Interested?
Stay tuned to this page for further information regarding the CSF including RACE RESULTS on a weekly basis!
Note photo at the bottom left. This is the Gaffney's, a father and son team preparing for a Belfast Laser race. They also came up to Cobbossee from Georgetown for a few of the Thursday night races too! So much fun for all who participate!

Thursday evening 6:00 pm races off Molazigan Island: The races have begun! Great fun! Everyone is welcome! Boat on over. Catch the wind and sail on over to the island for some Thursday evening fun!

Sunday, August 5: CSF Annual Lighthouse Regatta at 1pm!
This is a really fun event with many sailors taking part in the annual series of races at the Ladies Delight Island Lighthouse on Cobbossee. Pack up some lunch, hop in your "craft," and head on out to the north bay to relax while enjoying some fine sailing!
See you there!

2008 CSF Summer Season Results
This email was received by the CYC from Bill Howard who, as Race Chairman, has kept us up-to-date on all race results for the CSF this season. Thanks Bill!
"Attached (click on the Xs to the right) are the final standings. They were announced at the Loon Cup but I thought some of you may be interested in seeing both the standings with the throw-outs and the standings without the throw-outs. It was great to see a very healthy turnout this season. It could be even better. I hope to see a night with 15 boats next year! We can do it with all the new interest from the younger sailors and the new women sailors.
Thank you Jon Lund for the continued use of the island. We are all very grateful.
Thank you Syd for a well run season and Loon Cup Regatta. Congratulations too for going almost the whole season with all first places!
Take care and see you next year."
