Black Swan Yacht Club in Catonsville - baltimoresun.com: "May 1 marked the first in this year's series of weekly races on the huge lake that some at the retirement community don't realize exists on the Maiden Choice Lane campus. A crowd of 53 was able to find it, however, and enjoyed the first Wednesday morning racing of the season, which runs through October. Diehlmann was quick to credit Mary Hollenbaugh, the club's secretary, for the smooth and efficient manner in which the races were run and scores were kept. After watching the boats race around three buoys on the 3-acre surface of Lake Charles, which is 7 feet deep, spectators also had an opportunity to pilot a boat themselves."
