2011 LASER & LASER RADIAL
GULL LAKE OPEN
GULL LAKE MICHIGAN
Notice of Race
Saturday May 28, 2011
Another Grey threatening day greeted 14 Lasers on May 28 on Gull Lake- but that would not deter a great afternoon of tight racing! 5 races were held and the rain held off until the boats were in the drysail lot (and the bride on the beach at the YC was married!) While several boats took there turn at the top the series came down to the last race between Chad Coberly and JP Del Solar with JP hunting Chad down on the starting line like it was the Americas Cup to take the win and put the required boats in between to take the series! A few boats went swimming and one boat nearly sank.. I wont mention whom.. in the erratic 5-15 knot breeze. The event was wrapped up with a mini clinic by JP describing his boat set up and his technique-Thanks JP! Hopefully next year will bring better weather and we can get more folks going in the Spring! Full results below. -- Chad
