Saturday’s wonderful forecast proved true, and after singing Mrs. Hurst Happy Birthday for her 93rd on Friday, racing commenced at 11:10 in a freshening 16-20 knots from the North. The breeze moderated throughout the day, but featured great racing with double digit velocity all day. Conditions were shifty, but created fun racing opportunities and passing lanes for all of the sailors.
Thanks to coaches Matt Lindblad, Mike O’Connor, Bill Healy, and Jeff Bresnahan for their help hearing protest and redress hearings, and to Bill for NEISA Rep duties.
Sunday’s forecast was not nearly as encouraging as Saturday, and it also rang true. Despite a beautiful bucolic morning with mist blowing across the lake, as soon as the fog cleared the breeze died, and though we spend nearly over 3 hours in various stages of readiness, we were able to complete 1 race in each division in a puffy ENE breeze.
Thanks to everyone for making the trip up, for spending time with Mrs Hurst, and for racing at our place! Look forward to seeing all of our women represent NEISA in the showcase next weekend!
