2013 27th Annual Saratoga Lake Invitational

Saturday 8/10 had brisk winds 14 - 20+ from the Southwest gave us a real challenge on the racecourse today. 19 boats ventured out and we all managed to stay upright, although a few boats ALMOST went over. Over the course of the 4 races, the wind continued to build, but we stayed out and kept racing. There were a few people after the races saying "I have to call Harry", but mostly boats stayed intact even in the heavy air.

Sunday 8/11 brought us another beautiful day at Saratoga Lake, NY, with light and variable southeast winds to start the last race. The winds were fluky and spotty towards the middle of the race, then died near the end if the course. The leaders sat near the finish line waiting to see if they could get what they needed to just make it across the finish line. The wind finally came in from the southwest pushing several of the other boats right up to the leaders, but not quite in time to beat them. Several of the boats behind changed places with each other as the wind got to them at different times.

Trophies were awarded to the top 5 - full results are below.  Pictures are here

Thanks to regatta chairs Misha and Olga Gutin and crew - always a fun time!
