Lake Raponda Association
The mission of The Lake Raponda Association is to preserve and enhance the natural resources and environmental health of Lake Raponda and the surrounding area for the benefit of current and future generations.
In spite of nearby Hurricane Hermine, eight intrepid sailors held
the third sailboat regatta of the season on a perfect Vermont
day. The course was around yellow buoys strategically placed
by John Meyer, who risked his life in and out of a canoe to place
them. Under Cindy Meyer's watchful eye from the committee
boat and the spectator
fleet, all sailors finished the course. John Meyer won the
first race (hmmm--odd coincidence!) and Ballard Hindman of
Mountain View won the second race by a nose. The youngest
sailors award went to the Watson kids, who sailed a respectable
race. In the future we hope to have more regattas, including
paddleboards, kayaks and canoes! If you are interested, please
