2018NACflag

The Flying Scot 2018 NAC at Rush Creek Yacht Club in Heath, TX, is complete with 5 great races over 3 days and great competition all the way. The food was great, the hospitality was great!   We started the day celebrating Flag Day with the participants holidng up a giant flag in honor of our country and our wonderful veterans.

The final race was held on another fine 90-degree day with south/southwest winds starting out around 5 up to about 10 mph in the last leg of the 5-leg windward leeward course.  The Race Committee did a great job moving the marks a few times as the wind shifted from southwest to south.  Once again, places changed many times and it was an exciting race to be watching.  One protest resulted in no changes to the scores.

After the final race After race the top 3 in Championship are Zeke and Jay Horowitz, Tyler Andrews and Bill Bruss, and Jeff and Amy Smith Linton.  In Challenger, the top 3 are Randy Pawlowski and Rafael Melendez, Jody Smith and Annette Johnson and Steve and Renee Comen.
