Bruce and Lynn Kitchen proudly hoist the Egyptian Cup!

Twenty-two boats - 9 from Cliton Lake Sailing Association - registered for the 2017 Egyptian Cup Regatta at Careyle Sailing Association. Due to Sunday's forecast for lstorms and heavy winds, PRO Ted Beier held 4 races on Saturday.  Two W-L races were sailed in the morning in 8-12 MPH WSW winds. In the afternoon the winds held steady and there was 1 modified Olympic and 1 W-L course.  After Day 1 the top 5 boats were separated by just 5 points.  

After racing came the beer, dark and stormies (rum and ginger beer) and a delicious dinner  prepared by Greg and Melissa Ziegenfuss of Butler's Pantry.  Then Saturday night's expeted weather forced everyone to tie their boats down.  A fierce storm with lots of thunder and lightning and lots of rain came and filled the boats with water.  

Sunday the winds started out heavy and gusty but by race time it was 10-12 with some gusts.  hHile the PRO kept an eye on the weather, 1 more race was completed. Bruce and Lynn Kitchen finished first. Frank and Marianne were second. Ben Williams and Deb Aronson were third.

Another great job by CSA!  Full results are here.
