We experienced great midwinter sailing all across the state last weekend. Seven Scots sailed in the Cherry Pie Regatta at SSS last Saturday. Conditions were ideal and very challenging. Winds, generally from the north, ranged from around 8-14 and seemed to constantly change in direction and strength. We had 2 good windward, leeward, finish to windward races with many lead changes. The fleet was very tight throughout. After we hit the shore for the post race, places continued to change as Zoom withdrew from race 2 after learning of a rule violation and Serenity had scored the dreaded OCS also in the second race. When the dust settled, Randy scored his first podium finish in 3rd place, Leprechaun was 2nd and Eightball took the day. Across the state at Lake Eustis, 3 of our fleet members represented well as Serge, Steamboat Willy and JaMingo made the trek to the district regatta. Team Horowitz in JaMingo took 2nd in a 28 boat fleet in a good tune up for the upcoming Midwinter Regatta at SSS. Our next race date is this Saturday, Jan 21, start at 1:30. This Friday is a must attend social event, the February Fireside Chat and chili cookoff.
