Other than a), all good reasons to visit. You know that we don't really race logs, right?
We "log racers" are a pretty social bunch. I have heard that many of our members participate in predicted log regattas just for the social gatherings that inevitably follow a race. I think they secretly enjoy using their boats and competing, though.
My personal experience? Since I started log racing about twelve years ago, I have honed my navigation skills, used my boat ten to twelve times more each season than I otherwise would have, met new people locally, and made friends around the United States and Canada as a result of participating in the annual competition between local winners and the social events that go with it.
Our members range in age from 20 something to almost 90 something, and all share a love of the water, and enjoy meeting new people with similar interests.
