Nineteen teams arrived at Lake Forest Sailing and were greeted by winds from the WNW at ten to twenty knots and unseasonably high temperatures that topped out at seventy degrees. Racing got underway at 10:30AM and the sailors were able to complete six races in each division before heading in for the day. Sailors enjoyed pumpkin carving, soups, caramel apples and more onshore!
Varsity teams started at 10AM following a costume contest! Winds from the NE shifted to the E at around four knots but continued moving right to the SE and filled in to around six knots. Four teams were within just a few points of one another in the battle to secure the final two Great Lakes Championship spots. The RC decided to run a one race A/B as the time limit for the day approached. Nine total races were completed over the weekend. Thank you to Bobby Collins, Katie Tinder, Kurt Thomsen & Zach Hernandez for bringing boats and sails for the fleet. Additionally LFS would like to thank all of the volunteers & LFS staff both on the water and onshore for helping to make this years Halloween Spectacular so much fun. Maybe next year a HS team can finally beat out the Opti sailors and win the costume contest!
