Michigan State 420 Championship


Saturday, October 18:

The sailors morning was met with slight drizzle and shifty north winds putting requiring a few early adjustments to keep the course square. After the third race, the course was pulled and moved west to take advantage of a more open part of the lake. The wind speed increased slightly and became a bit more consistent as racing continued. It was a very close race between the top four teams, each of which were trading the scoring lead with the trailers tied up throughout the day. At the conclusion of races, Spring Lake High School had the clear victory with 43 points, but second and third places were still tied up; Grosse Point South and East Grand Rapids each finished with 52 points, and Detroit County Day and Traverse City West each ended with 54 points. Determining the tie-breakers put Grosse Point South in second place and East Grand Rapids in third, forcing Detroit Country Day and Traverse City West into fourth and fifth places respectively.
