2012 Michigan-Ontario District Championship Regatta
Forest Rogers and Mike Wesner reclaimed the Michigan-Ontario District Championship title at Crescent Sail Yacht Club during the weekend of July 21-22. Seventeen boats enjoyed incredibly consistent breezes on Lake St. Clair with 3 races completed on Saturday and 2 races on Sunday. The overall winner of the regatta was our boat builder, Harry Carpenter, with Melanie Dunham as crew. Ryan Malmgren finished 2nd with Carrie Carpenter as crew. Forest and Mike were 3rd overall, but earned the title of 2012 Michigan-Ontario District Champions as the top finisher from the M-O District. Anne Ballew and Tom Porter finished in 1st place for the “Gold 2” division. Complete results for the event are included in a PDF file attached. Regatta organizer Forest Rogers and his organizing and management team hosted a terrific event. Special thanks goes to Harry Carpenter and Ryan Malmgren for making the trip from Maryland and Wisconsin, respectively, to put on a terrific Flying Scot speed seminar on Friday prior to the regatta.
