A student of mechanical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, Clifford “Cliff” Kigar grew up in the township of Lewis Center, Ohio, where he graduated from Olentangy High School in 2015. As a young boy, Cliff Kigar crewed on a C&C 25 sailboat that was owned by his family. Named Blaze, this sloop won the 2005 Fall Regatta of the Alum Creek Sailing Association.

Established 35 years ago to promote the sport of sailing, the Alum Creek Sailing Association currently has more than 200 members and operates a full-service Lewis Center-based sailing facility. Its founders were accomplished sailors who simply loved to race.

This dedication to sailboat racing continues today, as the Association continues to sponsor the Red Cup Series and several regattas on an annual basis. During the summer months, the organization also holds private racing events each Wednesday evening. Its regatta series begins with the Ice Breaker in April and ends with the Old Fox Regatta in October.
