In Greek mythology, the Anemoi were wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction, from which their respective winds came, and were each associated with various seasons and weather conditions. They were sometimes represented as mere gusts of wind, at other times were personified as winged men, and at still other times were depicted as horses kept in the stables of the storm god Aeolus, who provided Odysseus with the Anemoi in the Odyssey.

Of the four chief Anemoi, Boreas was the north wind and bringer of cold winter air, Notus was the south wind and bringer of the storms of late summer and autumn, and Zephyrus was the west wind and bringer of light spring and early summer breezes; Eurus was the east wind.  Additionally, four lesser Anemoi represented the northeast, southeast, northwest, and southwest winds.


I guess you could say that Boreas was a little too upset to permit execution of the Frostbite Regatta last Saturday. So, I thought I’d see if he might calm down a bit and give us another chance .

I am polling the members to see if there is any interest in rescheduling the Frostbite Regatta to one of two available dates: March 12 or March 19. Both of these dates are shown to be open on the LYC calendar. If you are an interested racer and have a preference for one of the dates, please comment to this blog and we will reschedule accordingly.

    Boreas blows. We need some serious rain gods to get with the program before summer gets here and the marina has to move twice again.
