MAC MCCALLUM HOPES this weekends regatta on Lake Wateree will be a shot in the arm for membership in the Wateree Sailing Club.
Hearing that his cousin was going to buy a catamaran and go sailing, Mac McCallum got caught up in the excitement and bought his own multi-hull sailboat. Turns out, he did not have a sailing partner as his cousin backed out on his end of the deal.That was more than three years ago and from his learn-by-doing stage, the Lake Wateree resident stayed with his hobby, competed in regattas around the southeast, but never on his home lake. That will all change this weekend as the Wateree Sailing Club (WSC) will be the home base for a two-day Eastern Multihull Sailing Association Regatta (EMSA) on Lake Wateree beginning on Saturday and continuing with racing on Sunday.McCallum, a member of the WSC as well as the EMSA, said competing on Lake Wateree is a dream come true.
