NU Spring


Saturday, May 5:

Today was a perfect day for sailing on Lake Michigan. It was 80ºF and sunny all day, with the wind around 5-10 knots and shifty, but still very sailable. We started the day at 9:30 and got 8 races per division in. We called the racing at 4 as the shifts were growing up to around 70º in direction. Tomorrow we have scheduled a beach start at 9:30 and intend to complete two more sets per division. The forecast for tomorrow is 50ºF and wind at 7-15 kts. A special thank you to our PRO Russ Sobotta and our chief judge Betsy Barrett for helping this regatta run very smoothly.

Sunday, May 6:

Today was another beautiful day but with temperatures in the 50's. We started at 9:30 with a 30 minute postponement due to light wind, but it quickly built to around 18 knots. 4 races per division were completed today meaning a total of 12 good races per division on the weekend. We ended racing at 1:00pm as the waves were starting to build. Congratulations to Michigan 1 for winning the regatta with 39 points! A huge thank you to our PRO Russ Sobotta and our chief judge Betsy Barrett for helping the regatta to so smoothly. And to all the teams that came for participating in such a great weekend of racing.
