Lazy Day on Mendota
 No Saturday racing
The PRO's are looking brilliant for Friday's hard day of racing. The wind never reached 7 all day and the direction refused to settle into a pattern. Thanks to Larry Krause and Dennis Gazzana for sitting on the water all day to monitor the conditions. RC Jeff Butzer and Tom Hodgson communicated via radio on the half hour with the fleets to apprise them of conditions. Great fun day to enjoy friends and marvel at the organizational coup Mendota accomplished. Thanks, Mendota, for a relaxing day. 
 US Youth Champs - Lamphere Makes Podium

 Congratulations to Malcolm Lamphere for a strong third place finish in tough wind and current conditions at the Gorge. He finished behind Mitchell Kiss and Erika Reineke to establish himself in the elite group of youth sailors in the nation.

Our 420 sailors can be proud of their midfleet and higher finishes. This event is by invitation only from resume and features only our nation's best.
