The forecast was cold, wet, and high winds for Saturday. We arrived to have somewhat different unexpected conditions. The air was warmer that expected, and the breeze consistent at 12-15 knots from the North. We watch the radar and the approaching clouds. After four races in each division, RC postponed and everyone safely return to shore. We left signal boat and marks on the water.
Sails were lowered, and then removed. We entered a long delay. The sky closed in, winds were up to 30 knots and we had a hail storm! Our club skiff sank, but then was recovered. Signal stayed put on the water!
Following blue sky appeared, and boats were rigged. RC started the racing and two more A and two more B races were completed.
Final scores were very close. Congratulations to Grosse Ile for winning the Michigan State 420 Championships!
Thank you to PRO Jim Allen, Umpire John Walton, Judge Dennis Bartley. No protest were filed. Our coaches provided well prepared and tuned boats, support, and many weeks of preparation for this event. Thank you to our parents, volunteers, and staff, we kept our sailors all day.
