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 and Robert Hobbs.  Women's winners also presented with the Joan Burnside Memorial Trophy were Edie Sullivan, Wendy Diard and Heidi Gough.  Congratulations to all the participants.
