2019 Midwinters at Sarasota Sailing Squadron, FL - Day 2 racing


Wow! PRO Fairlie Brinkley and his excellent Race Committee gave us 3 great races today so we have finished 6 of the 8 races scheduled. The day started out with a postpone for a little over 1/2 hour when the wind finally appeared. We started in 6-8 and worked our way up to 12 MPH over the 3 races. The forecast had been for little to no wind today so we were fortunate to get in 3 races!   In the first race the wind was light and the Championship fleet was pretty tight. The Challenger Division was a bit more spread out with the fleet left and right. The second and third races we got a little more wind and the fleets were pretty spread out. While first place stayed the same in the Championship Division, the rest of the places changed for both fleets. Tops 3 in Championship are now (1) Jeff and Amy Smith Linton, (2) David Ames and P.Butler, and (3) John Aras and Jackson Benvenutti. Challenger leaders are (1) Karen Jones and Chuck Tanner, (2) BIll Vogler, Howard Harris and Carol Claypool and (3) Phil Scheetz and RIchard Baucom.   A nice dinner is planned at the club tonight thanks to Regatta ChairJohn Pether and crew. We'll have 2 more races tomorrow so we are hoping for great conditions.
