2018 NAC at Rush Creek Yacht Club, Heath, TX - Qualifier Races are Done!

  2018NACqual   After 3 postponements due to heavy winds and gusts, we headed it out to the race course today at 2PM. The sun peaked out from behind the clouds but with the breeze it was not so hot, even though it was in the 80s out there. PRO Mark Foster and his Race Committee got in 2 excellent 4-leg windward leeward qualifying races in 10-14 MPH south to southwest winds. In both flights the leaders split off from the rest of the pack before ever reaching the windward mark and their chutes were flying a while before the next teams rounded the mark.   After qualifiers, the leader is Zeke Horowitz with his dad Jay crewing. The results will be split 50-50 between the Championship and Challenger DIvisions, with 26 boats in each divisions. There will be 3 days of finals with those two divisions.
