East Qualifier, team racing


Friday, April 17:

Sailing conditions were poor at the start of the day as 7 teams gathered at Traverse Area Community Sailing's Cornwell Sailing Center in Traverse City Michigan for the East Team Racing Pre Qualifier. A hint as to the wind speed could be taken from the wake of a single kayaker crossing the entire lake: there was absolutely NO wind. However by 1:00 a slight thermal picked up, which is pretty common for the Traverse City area. This allowed PRO Eric Lind to drop the AP flag and start racing at 1:30. Although the wind faded and then returned several times in the afternoon the RC got in 21 races for a complete round robin by 5:45.

Congratulations to all who travelled to Traverse City for the event!
