ANOTHER DAY OF NO RACING - THE HIGH AND LOW WIND OF GREEN LAKE


A Start
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 False hope - PRO Butzer took the fleet out for a 1:30 warning. A couple practice starts and it all fizzled. Wind changed direction with a few wisps of hope -- all for naught. Fortunately the A's have a rule to allow a one race regatta.   Photo by Pat Dunsworth

  Chairs John Hayashi and Bill McNeill finally get out on the water. The women, Sue Weston and Mimi Hayashi, were on shore. Notice the box of softgoods - Green Lake has a wonderful selection of polos, fast-dry long and short sleeve shirt and windshirts for sale. For any of you with fond memories of Green Lake, contact Windward Boat Works for purchase, 608-575-8033.
MC FLEET

 Kelly Hirn of Geneva waits patiently with the 33 other MC sailors. PRO Tom Hodgson kept the sailors safely on shore until 3:00 waiting for potential storms and then no wind to pass. With hopes of one race as late as 5:30, the fleet finally returned to base with no luck. The MC fleet will try for a 9:00 warning; the A's, 10:00.
 
This will conclude the 09 Championships at Green Lake. Winners in tomorrow's edition. Thanks again to Chris Love of Sailgroove who hopped on a few boats yesterday for interviews. What an addition to this event. Thanks to all of you at home who followed us with the coverage.
