Final Day:

The final day started off with Rich Chapman leading by just a single point (not counting throwouts) and needing to just keep Fred behind him to take home the championship. These two sailors put on quite a show all week trading 1st place finishes. Rich took second and Fred took 7th (which ended up his throwout) in the first race. This left Rich at 15 and Fred at 17. The last race continued the shifty conditions which played a big part in many changes in who was leading, Fred found the right shifts and lead most of the race and finished in 1st again. Rich placed 4th and that left Fred one point ahead at the end of the NAs. Both sailors were smiling as they got the close racing they were looking for at the event.

Additionally Eric Braysmith (2012 Lake Lemon Regatta Champ) took home the Challenger trophy with a very impressive 3 days of sailing very consistant.

Victor Goodman was a local club sailor to finish in 3rd for the challenger division.

Whitman Jerman (local club sailor) won the jounior division and improved throughout the week and ended with a 13th on the final race and showing his abilities on the upwind legs along with the downwind runs.

Day 2:

The second day started off with winds near 10 knots and sunshine. The sailors got on the water and got in one race in near perfect conditions. They got back out on the water for 4 races in winds from 12 to 22 knots that got a few sailors to break out the short rig. Additionally a couple of Force 5ers took to the safety boats to help out with the higher winds and insure everyone had a great time in the higher winds.

Rich Chapman and Fred Meno battled for first place all day with Rich ahead by one point after all was said and done.
