The sun was shining and it was 80° so we can't complain! We got in 2 four leg W-L races after a postpone and a race abandon. Winds were light and variable, sometimes 5, sometimes 2, but we got spline races done. We thought there might be a third but we're going in for dinner.. watch for results here https://www.fssa.com/content/2023-wife-husband-birmingham-sc-al
Here's a nice write up By Rubin E. Grant in the Over The Mountain Journal about Laura and Huff Jelks and the Wife- Husbands.
We're here at the 2023 Flying Scot Wife-Husband Championship at Birmingham Sailing Club in Alabama. 39 boats are registered and we can’t wait to get out on the water. Richard Wade and his team have been very welcoming, helping each of us set up and be ready to sail - Lake Logan Martin is ready for us!
The weather did not cooperate last weekend at the ACC’s at Lavalette. The 40+ gusts on Saturday and 25+ gusts on Sunday brought by Tropical Storm Ophelia were a bit above our guidelines. Thanks to Lavalette Yacht Club and chair Roy Childers for hosting and giving it their all!
