2017 Midwinters at Southern Yacht Club, New Orleans, LA - Day 4 - Final
Well Mother Nature was kinder today with temperatures in the 60’s with the sun out most of the day. With an east wind at 10 -12, there was not much chop so it was a little easier on the boat and the passengers. On the way out there was just not much wind but by the time we reached the Race Committee boat, all was well.
The Race Committee started right on time at 11:00 and gave us 2 great races, one 4-leg and one 5-leg windward-leeward. There seemed to be more pressure on the right and it seemed to be favored but some boats went left and still made out. The Championship boats were really spread out but the Challengers were close at every mark and both finishes.
The final results: The Championship winners are (1) Zeke and Jay Horowitz, (2) Rod and Roddy Stieffel. and (3) Tom and Melissa Miller. The Challenger winners are (1) Tom Clark and David Bergevin who won the tiebreaker over (2) Greg and Diane Kampf, and in third Burton Shepherd and Audrey Duffell. Full Results are here.
Thanks so much to Southern Yacht Club, Regatta Chairperson Larry Taggart, Race Committee Chair Wallace Paleotu and their teams for a great time this week. We LOVE New Orleans and would love to come back!
