2014 Midwinters at Southern Yacht Club, New Orleans - Day 6 Final
Another beautiful day on Lake Ponchartrain starting out in sunny 60-degree weather, later getting up into the 70's. It's hard to say what wind we had as we started at 11:00 with very little and shifty wind, so the Race Committee postponed for an hour. When the wind finally came up, it shifted from NE to E to S to SE to E and everything in between, giving the Race Committee a pretty big challenge to get in the final 2 races for the regatta. Once the wind came up and the Race Committee set the course, the first race went off without incident and there were no changes of course for any of the 4 Windward-leeward legs. But in the second race, we moved pretty far from shore then had 5 starts and a few postponements, with one general recall, before we got the race in. We finished about 2:30 PM and headed back in for the awards. The final results include Zeke Horowitz winning the Championship Division and Alanna Strong winning the Challenger division. Congratulations to all and thanks to Southern Yacht Club for hosting us this week!
