Day 1 started out with everyone dancing to R-E-S-P-E-C-T on the dock, and these women sure derserve that! Mother Nature gave us 80° sunny skies and awesome wind, NNW at 10-12 MPH building to 16-17, with PRO Jack Yors running 3 W-L races. The places changed in every race with some pretty fierce competition! After 3 races, Lynn Bruss & Monica Gaitan lead in Championship and Bowman O'Connor, Rachel Mittman & Katie Bayless lead in Challenger.
2022 FS Women’s NAC at Corinthian Sailing Club In Dallas, TX - Nina Cummings is here welcoming the 17 teams registered for this year’s event.
