The Midwinters warmup regatta was sailed today in perfect conditions on beautiful Saratoga Bay with 36 of the 54 boats registered for the Midwinters participating in today's event.  With 80-degree temperatures and 12 MPH winds, 2 races were sailed with a Championship and Challenger Division.  There was some confusion on the scoring, and as of now, pending final results, Tom McNally with crew Henry Pico won the Championship Division and Jim Leggette with crew Mike Funk won the Challenger.  Watch here for final results as soon as they become available.

The boats are coming, the boats are here at the Midwinters!
