2019 Wife Husband Championship at Corinthian Sailing Club, Dallas, TX - Day 1


It was a beautiful day on White Rock Lake, in the 90's, sunny with just not enough wind in te morning. The Race Committee n shore while we waited for the breeze to fill in - and it did. We headed out about 12:30 and races started shortly after we got out. We got in 3 great 4-leg Windward-Leeward races in 6-10 MPH easterly winds, and there was very little consistency in the results. People who finished badly in race 1 did great in race 2 and vice-versa. We had lots of fun on the water, and now we get treated to a great dinner by Corinthian Sailing Club and Fleet 23.  What could be better? Pictures will be uploaded as soon as we can. Results will be here.
