2018 Women's NAC at Privateer Yacht Club, Chattanooga, TN - Welcome and Practice Race

2018Privateer` 2018Privateer2

It was a sunny and warm afternoon and evening on Friday 9/14 at Privateer Yacht Club with several teams arriving and going out to sail, many of them sailing together for the first time.  Some more teams are expected to arrive on Saturday morning.  Four teams participated in the practice race with a north wind blowing about 8 MPH on a 2-leg windward leeward race course. Melanie Dunham and crew Diane Kampf won the practice race. 

After racing, Rob Fowler and his crew treated us to a wonderful welcome party with stations set up for Italian foods, German foods, Mexican foods and a great dessert table.  Of course, there were plenty of beverages for everyone!  We had a great time catching up with old friends and meeting many new women sailors.  

Tomorrow the regatta racing starts - good luck to all 16 of the women's teams!
