What a great day on the water Sunday. 9 Lightnings, 8 Albacores, 1 Hobie, and 1 Laser came out to play on a beautiful sunny afternoon. We decided to sail the lower course because the breeze was looking pretty iffy at the Skippers meeting. As it turned out, we could easily have gone up to the upper course as we had nice 5-7 kt breezes that started out of the SE and slowly shifted around to SSW. The RC headed up by Jeff Storck got 4 races in before it got too shallow to continue and calling it a day. Congratulations to the days’ winners – Albacore Skipper Daphne Byron, and Lightning Skipper Rick Welch. Follow the “Read More” link to see the scores:
We had two of the most excellent back-to-back sailing days in recent memory for the 2009 Leukemia/President’s cup regatta. Thanks to PROs Mike Heinsdorf on the upper course and Jennifer Parrow on the lower course, and their Ace Race Committee members, we got off 6 races in good succession on the upper course and 4 to 6 races on the lower course and got everybody back to the docks in time for the Saturday party and Sunday after-race Picnic.
