The MCSA Coed Championship was held at Baseline Lake in Dexter, Michigan on April 16. Ten teams participated in the regatta. Although the forecast was for rain and lots of wind, the day started with overcast skies and moderate wind out of the south. Racing started at 10:05. in shifty, challenging conditions. Racing continued without any delays for most of the day. The course was gradually moved as the wind went to the right. In the middle of the day the air lightened a bit, but by the end it was up to the mid-teens, with puffs over 20. 20 races were needed to complete a round robin, and with high winds forecasted for Sunday, the decision was made to finish on Saturday, if possible. Racing continued efficiently, with very short wait times between races and during rotations. Racing concluded around 5:30, and awards were held afterwards. There were no breakdowns or protests.
Wisconsin finished first, Michigan second, and Northwestern third. The next three teams, Minnesota, Marquette and Ohio State all qualified for semi-finals as well. Good luck to all teams who will be competing in the next round. Thank you to the judges and race committee who made this regatta a success, and to the members of the Michigan Sailing Team who helped out. We had a great time hosting, and we will see you soon.
