JOHN KLING MEMORIAL TRANSJAC

 
This race started in 1998 to create an exciting finale to our racing season. The race is a long distance event over a course set to circumnavigate the entire lake. All boats sail as one handicap fleet.  The TRANSJAC TROPHY is awarded to the 1st place skipper.

The Don McClymont Trophy, new in 2010, is a 2nd place award for the TRANSJAC race. The award is named in honor of Don MacClymont, an active racing sailor who contributed his wealth of sailing knowledge and competitiveness to the midwest sailing community. Don generously supported and participated in many club events on or off the lake during his many years with the Jacomo Sailing Club. He was one of our greatest members and this trophy honors his memory.
