Local Sailors SHINE!!!!

Kudos to AYC sailors...Rear Commodore Steve Orsini and wife Ginger, and racer Steph Schwenk and Race Chairman husband Andy.
The latter took first in Division and 6th Overall in the Delta Ditch Run in San Francisco Bay and read on about SteveO and Ginger in Vancouver:
Ginger and Steve sailed their Lido 14, sail number 6310, at the 42 Annual Vancouver Lake Sailing Club Regatta, on Vancouver Lake, near Vancouver, Washington on June 4th and 5th. They were a bit rusty not having sailed the boat since last fall. The first race did not go well as they came in 5th in the 8 boat Lido fleet. The bad part was that they were beaten not only by 6131, the first 6000 series boat that they owned, but by sail number 2953, their original "Pig in a Poke" boat from the founding of the Anacortes Fleet. That did it, they re-adjusted sail settings, got to roll tacking the boat and ran off a series of 4 first place finishes. By the next day, they had won the Lido 14 Division for the 2011 Regatta.

Now's the chance for all us to challenge them at WINDERMERE REGATTA this weekend!!!
