Our Congratulations and Sincere Thank Yous to Donors and Bidders....


Congratulations to the Ned and the Lockwood Family, winning bidders of the race on Dave Irish's No Surprise. Big Smiles and good breeze beats dreary weather every time!...Thanks to the family for bidding on this fund raiser for TACS and thanks to Dave Irish (of Irish Boat Shop) for your support!


Donations in the forms of gifts likes crewing opportunities on really cool (or sometimes very ordinary) boats are a valuable source of support for the sailors of Traverse Area Community Sailing. We appreciate all who made this event possible!
