Our first regatta of the season is now under our belts! It was a beautiful day to be on the water and the Lansing Sailing Club put on a wonderful event. Check out the write up from our first place winners, Team Morin/313, below. Attached are some pictures from the awards party, as well as our current scoring results. Remember that we have changed the high point scoring system a bit so that you will be scored on your top three events as well as given an additional 2 points per regatta attended! Right now, 313 is leading with a total of 9 points.

There are also some phenomenal pictures that were taken from Race Committee that have been posted to a Flickr account. Check them out here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lansingsailing/sets/72157683784667955

The Lake Lansing regatta had a little bit of everything. We saw super light (3knts) and then also experienced planing conditions for a bit. About 90 seconds after one of the starts, there was an 180 degree shift.  The course flipped completely and ended up being a good course, but in the opposite direction. Finding the next puff and the next-next puff was really important.  It was a day of extreme patience.  Glad we had Taylor Swift playing on the boat all day, or there would have been yelling coming from the orange boat.

We and Mark Allen went back and forth all day.  We went in to the last race needing to win the race or have him finish at least two spots behind us (because he would win the tie breaker if we only beat him by one point). We ended up winning the last race. Matt was driving and Marcie and Kevin crewed.

Thanks to Ann Siegle for coordinating and to the RC for working through really challenging conditions.
