The usual suspects are expected.

It would be great to see the newbies attend:

Rocky G,Mike C, Tim C, Jared H, Gui, Cameron G

Could Dr. Karl make a cameo appearance?

Colin, Would you make the trip?

No new toys are expected with the posible exception of GER 78, but that is betwen SHC & Roger.

I will have to liberate the trophy from Ted for the event!

The US Midwinters wrapped up this Sunday after three days of challenging short course racing with a variety of wind strengths. Regardless of the wind strength, the shifts and puffs kept everyone on their toes. Everyone had a race where they shined, and it was proved on more than one occasion that a well sailed Nethercott can still whip a New Rules boat if the idiot with the stick is not sailing well.

Steve Clark Sailing GER 78 won the event. Rogers’s new ride definitely showed burst of speed when the wind was up and when sailing downwind. As usual ICYM was very quick in a breeze, but poor navigation and hardware issues contributed to some high scores and some alphabet on the score sheet. Mayhem lived up to her name, and while it was not pretty she placed well. Willy Clark is getting Kato up to speed, and Dave Clark took on Wonk and the conditions with grit & determination. Big George showed us all how to sail in a breeze, and it was great to have Atypicalguy come on out east to join us for the first time in a couple of years.

As the conditions were challenging, the regatta results boiled down to the sailors much more than the boats, variations in hull, rig & foil design. Keeping the sails dry is fast, and keeping your boat together is faster! Steve sailed a great regatta, and thrived in the difficult conditions. Congratulations!
