2010 LASER & LASER RADIAL
DISTRICT 19 CHAMPIONSHIP
GULL LAKE, MICHIGAN
Results and Photos
Gull Lake Yacht Club did a great job hosting this years District. Chad Coberly and his wife Michelle did a lot of work getting it all organized. Michelle did registration and was able to get over a dozen new Lasere Class members signed up! Way to go!!
The club facilities are very, very nice. They even have towels in the shower! It is also a golf and country club but luckily they were able to tolerate us for a couple days.
Satrurday started out looking promising as we were rigging but then as we sailed out it got quite a bit lighter. We waited about 1/2 hour for the wind to settle enough before the RC got things going. Gull Lake had some interesting winds that sailors such as myself could never really figure out. If you look at the results you'll see some guys had it figured out pretty good. We got 4 races, as planned, sailed and were in by about 5pm.
Sunday did not look as promising and we all drifted to the starting area and waited about an hour for some wind. It was again difficult to figure out what side would pay. It seemed most of Saturday was "go left" but on Sunday it was hit and miss.
Chad ended up wining the tie breaker over Matt Woodworth for the overall win. After Master's scoring Chad also was top Master. He ran the regatta and won! Way to go!
