Tulip Regatta a Success...

Twelve boats participated in this weekends Tulip Regatta. The Saturday races were graced by beautiful sunny skies and light winds from the northeast. Pangaea won both A fleet races on Saturday. Crazy Ivan and the Lowly Worm each had a first place on Saturday in B fleet; and Inferno won both C fleet races.

The winds on Sunday were nonexistent at the start, but eventually it built from the southwest and the race committee managed to start two races. In an unlikely turn of events Schussboomer won both A fleet races. Crazy Ivan won both B fleet races, and Inferno won its first race and DNF'd along with the entire C fleet in the second race in a dwindling breeze.

Immediately following the race the participants met in the club house for the race results and food. As expected Pangaea took 1st in A fleet, Crazy Ivan in B fleet, and Inferno in the C fleet. All participants were also treated to excellent video and pictures of the regatta events (soon to be posted to the web).

Many thanks to Walt Meagher, Fred Abelman and the entire team of volunteers who helped make this regatta happen!
