2018 Women's NAC at Privateer Yacht Club, Chattanooga, TN - Racing Day 1

2018 Womens Day 1

After a great welcome party on Friday night, and a nice breakfast Saturday morning, we had the skippers meeting and the racing was underway.  There were 3 tremendous 4-leg windward leeward races on Saturday in 12-18 MPH north winds that picked up as the races progressed. The Race Committee led by PRO Brainard Cooper set great courses and lengthened them in the first race to make sure they were 50-60 minutes long.  We had a nice sunny day in the high 80’s so keeping hydrated on the water was key.  Of the 15 boats racing today, it was particularly tough for the boats that were 2-up to keep the boat flat, but we all made it through all 3 races. Jack Everett and David Cox videoed the races and you can see them on the FSSA Facebook page!  At the end of the first day, the top 5 teams are (1) Mary Anne Hopper, Jennifer Draheim, Melissa Miller, (2) Peyton ANkers and Holly Gregory, (3)  Tracy Sykes, Nicole Claas Moore, DIana Plunkett, (4)  Nancy Claypool, Stacey Rieu, Debbie Huntsman and (5) Melanie DUnham and Diane Kampf,

Now on to a nice dinner and party time - oh, and some rest!  Photos being uploaded here..  Full results are here.
