2017 NAC at Sandusky Sailing Club, Sandusky, OH - Anna Tunnicliffe!
Despite all efforts by Jim Tichenor and the RC to wait for the wind to lie down, it just never happened, so Women and Junior NACs were not held. On a better note, the Flying Scot Foundation brought us Olympic champion sailor Anna Tnnicliffe to present a great talk on her own sailing history. Her parents taught her to sail, not to necessairily compete, but to be aware of what to do in the event there was an emerrgency of any kind on the water. Lo and behold, she ended up loving to sail and worked very hard to be competitive, did what she had to do to GET to the Olympics (no small feat) and the rest is history. Her passion for the sport is inspiring - wish we could all have her energy and her talent! Great to have Anna here with us at the NAC!
