And the winners of the 2019 Flying Scot Women's NAC are Greta Mittman and Jennifer Judkins from Corinthian Sailing Club in Dallas, TX. Our PRO Gary Werden sent the teams out in (very) light air with the plan to race as soon as the breeze picked up. And sure enough, they got in 2 races to complete a 5-race series for the event. The top 5 finishers,who each received a sail bag made by Stacey Rieu of MAD Sails, were (1) Greta Mittman & Jennifer Judkins, (2) Melanie Dunham & Stacey Rieu, (3) Mary Ann Hopper, Melissa Miller & Jennifer Draheim, (4) Natalie Colemna-Fuller, Connie Eckart & Kate Sharp, and (5) Sally Morriss, Denise Whatley amd Laura Graham.

2019wom2

The day started with a postpone on shore with light and squirrily winds. PRO Gary Werden and crew kept a watchful eye on the weather and we did finally have one race before lunch It was a shortened windward- leeward course and after lunch there just was not enough wind to race. At 4PM the wind filled in from the south and we got in 2 great late afternoon races before calling it a day.

We had a cocktail party followed followed by a round table with BIll Draheim from Quantum Sales and Ryan Malmgren from MAD Sails, joined by the top 3 finishers for the day - Greta Mittman, Melanie Dunham and Mary Ann Hopper. There were lots of questions and enthusiam from the audience!  All that was followed up with a lobstah dinner for the seafood crowd, streak tips and chicken for the meateaters and past primavera for the rest. We also had a raffle with prizes provided by our awesome sponsors and lot of folks left with some fun stuff!
