2013 NAC at Lake Norman Yacht Club, Mooresville, NC - Days 1 - 3

2013 NAC Rainbow on Sunday

This was our reward at the end of the day Sunday after a bit of weather hit the area and the sun peeked out again!!    You can view other pictures here.

DAY 3 - no racing today, just not enough sustainable winds to get us out there despite the best efforts of the Race Committee. Championships begin tomorrow.

DAY 2 Qualifiers Race 1 - We started the day with a long postponement with no sustained wind over 3MPH.  At about 3PM, the AP flag came down and we were off to race the 1st Race of the Qualifiers.  With winds 4-8, we completed a Windward Leeward course and did not have time for a second race before dinner.  Tonight we had a contest with Loch Norman Nessie decorations -  and the winner was Nancy Claypool!

DAY 1 JUNIORS AND WOMEN's -The Juniors and Women's NAC took place today with 13-knot east winds, somewhat unusual for Lake Norman.  WIth 8 Junior teams and 5 Women's teams, PRO Jim Tichenor and team managed to get in all 3 races before the weather threatened to shorten the day.  Junior winners, also presented with the Fleet 76 trophy, were Greiner & Robert Hobbs.  Women's winners also presented with the Joan Burnside Memorial Trophy were Edie Sullivan, Wendy Diard & Heidi Gough.  Congratulations to all the participants.
