The Lake Eustis Sailing Club out did themselves with great weather, good racing, and fine shore side activities. And, a record number of sailors participated - 74 in all. Eleven states were represented with Woody Woodruff make the long haul from Colorado.
Races one and two were sailed on Friday in a moderate breeze with Andy Burdick and Tommy Harken taking the top places. Three races were completed Saturday, although the third race had to be shortened to a downwind finish as a storm was coming over the horizon. Race honors went to Andy Burdick for winning races 3 and 4, and to Jeff Annis for winning the shortened 5th race.
Sunday’s final race saw Andy Burdick capturing his four win. Unfortunately a DNF took Andy out of first place for the regatta. First place for the regatta went to Tommy Harken with consitent finishes thoughout the six races.
