We were very lucky to have an absolutely gorgeous sunny day in the 70's on Sarasota Bay for Day 1 racing.  With winds from the South shifting southeast to southwest and back and blowing from about 5 to 12 MPH, there was something for everyone.  The Race Committee held 3 windward leeward 4-leg races after a short postpone in the morning.  With 36 boats in Championship and 19 boats in Challenger, the competition was fierce out there!  After today's racing, Jeff and Amy Smith Linton from Davis Island Yacht Club are in the lead for the Championships Division and Phil Scheetz and Richard Baucom from Nockamixon Sail Club in PA are leading the Challengers.  More to come tomorrow.
