Great Lakes Championships


Saturday, November 15:

Cold temperatures and light winds 5-8 knot from the southwest greeted sailors for the first day of the 2014 Great Lakes Championships. Racing was postponed 1 hour as the race committee waited for the temperature to warm up and the boats to melt. The first A division race started by 11am. After 5 races in each division, racing finished for the day with the top 7 teams in with a chance of winning the overall championship.

Sunday, November 16:

More cold temperatures and a steadier 5-10 knot wind met sailors for day 2 of the Championship. Racing got underway by 930 with race 6a followed by 6b. With some flurries of snow and shifty conditions, sailors raced another 5 races in each division. After 20 total races Minnetonka emerged as the clear leader with 122 points, from Loyola in second with 131. In third place was Arrowhead with 151 points.

A big thank you to the Race Committee who braved very cold conditions to get some close and exciting racing in.
