The 2019 Midwest District Regatta was held on June 7-9, 2019 at the Eagle Creek Sailing Club in Indianapolis, IN.  We had a total of 16 competitors from 6 clubs (Clinton Lake SA, Carlyle SA, Ephraim YC, Eagle Creek SC, Indianapolis SC, and Cowan Lake SA)and 6 states (IN, IL, MO, MN, WI, and OH).  

Winds were 10-15 out of the East with gusts over 20.  The East wind made for a short course with lots of legs.  The racing was fierce with a premium on boat handling and gust management.  

After a hearty breakfast of buscuits and gravy with fruit, yogurt, and cinnamon rolls, everyone headed out to the course.  We started with a short 3-leg race, followed by 4 and 5 leg races each lasting about 30-45 minutes.  The Race Committee ran 5 races on Saturday as insurance against expected rain on Sunday. 

The rain came in overnight and was forecasted to continue through noon.  After a breakfast of scrambled eggs and sausage, the RC called a brief competitor's meeting to gauge interest in sailing in the rain.  Given the dismal forecast  for rain most of the day and the long drive home for many of the racers, everyone decided to call it a regatta and pack it in.   So, Saturday's results stood as the overall regatta results.

Ephraim YC brought 3 boats and finished 1-2-3 for the regatta.  Hugh Haggerty and Sarah Olson won the regatta with 6 points over 5 races.  Second was Michael Faugust and Jennifer Iikeda-Faugust.  Third was Cain Goettelman & Gordy Roberts.

Fleet 193 held its 11th Grits ’n Haggis Regatta at the beautiful Lake Keowee Sailing Club on May 18 & 19.  We had 22 Scots on the line. The winds were light which kept the kilts down.  Even though we only were able to get 2 races in on the weekend - the Dark and Stormies, Regatta Olympics (hosted by Sandy Eustis) and the steak dinner with all the trimmings Saturday evening more than compensated for it.

 The top 6 skippers and crew received Scottish wrap-around beach towels as trophies (thank you Sharon Hamilton, Regatta Chair).

Congratulations to Andrew and Doug Fox  - winners of the Regatta.  Andrew is the Dixie Lakes District Gov
