Sunny skies and seasonal temperatures greeted the six competitors in the 2016 Michigan State Laser Full Rig Championship. Racing started at 10:25 in a 3-5 knot westerly breeze. Wind increased to 8-12 knots and came from the south at midday, with 1.5 to 2 foot waves. The wind direction remained steady, but faded back to 3-4 knots by the time of the seventh and final race of the day.
Congratulations to our new state champion, Luuk Schmit from Groves High School. Congratulations also go to second place finisher, John Huskin from Grosse Pointe North, and third place finisher Graham Post from East Grand Rapids. New schools in the regatta this year were Grosse Pointe North and Traverse City Central.
A huge thank you to PRO Scott Corder, everyone helping out on the water and land, regatta chair Harold Stackpoole, Scorer Kathy Johnson, MISSA East Rep. Lynn Frikker, and the hospitality team led by Torrey Stackpoole.
