2011 Lake Lemon Results

Saturday we started the day at 48f and little breeze. It looked to be a light day so I threw the fleet cooler on the boat. During the 1st race, the wind picked up a bit and we were seeing puffs over 12! Between races, I sailed over to the dock and dropped off the cooler. Race 2 the wind picked up and we had nice 5-10 breeze that came and went and some puffs up to about 17. That kept us all on our toes. The left was favored but I got stuck right. Bummer. The 3rd race had about the same wind as the 2nd and I learned my lesson early. After the 2nd time around the windward mark, I was in the top 3 and trying to chase down Zofchack for the bullet. Although I had good downwind speed, the wind just wouldn't follow me. Phil and I rounded together but his great tactical sailing and my outhaul cleat failure meant he got inside headed back upwind. Phil finished 9 seconds behind Chris and I was 11 seconds behind Phil. Awesome racing.

About the time we hit shore, the rain set in for the evening. Still raining off and on Sunday morning with no breeze at all. Around 9am we all figured it out and started preparing for no races. That worked out well for me as I had about 9 hours of drive time for the day. We ended a great regatta weekend. Congrats to Phil, Andrew and Chris for the podium places. Congrats to everyone else who showed up and enjoyed the party. I'll be back again and bring friends to share the drive.

Thanks BYC and all your members for being great hosts!
