Peterson Report #2

posted Jan 14, 2012, 10:10 AM by Web Master
The first race today was delayed for an hour waiting for wind, but it was worth the wait.  At 11:30 it was sunny, a pleasant 25C with steady winds of 8 -12 knots.  In the 2.4s our own Paul Tingley won the first race with a good 20 boat lengths to spare.  In the second race, with steady 12 knot winds,  the Dutch came back with the win and Paul only managed a 6th.  After 7 races Paul has won the most races, but is down in 3rd place as a result of a few poor finishes.  The French boat has only won one race, but has been very consistent with a 4th his worst placing, and firmly in first place, 4 points ahead of the Dutch and 5 points ahead of Paul.  Canada owns 5 of the last 7 places.  It was a perfect day for racing on Charlotte Harbor.

I am off tomorrow, but will be back on the job Saturday.  Hopefully can get some pictures of the Canadians.  Weather cools off tomorrow with highs for the next few days 16 - 20C, but winds should be good with the cold front moving in.

Dont't forget to check out the Charlotte Harbor Regatta Feb 2 -5,,  several of the classes we sail at the NSC are represented.  How about some representatives from the club for next years Regatta?  I think we can do a deal on accommodation.
