All,

The results are in. I have the top 4 places(trophy places) and will have the rest soon.

--Winds on Friday were 4-12 and VERY shifty.
--Saturday started out with 12-18 laying down to 6-9 late in the day.
--Sunday was by far the windiest, 12-21, with the gusts really hammering the fleet downwind as many sailors will attest!

So the final four are.....>
1st: Bob Curry
2nd: Chad Schwall
3rd: Bill Gilispie (tie for second)
4th: Floris Van Laar (Canada)

It was a wonderful chamber of commerce weekend on Pensacola Beach. Next year we are planning on another 3 DAY EVENT so put the 3rd weekend in March on your calenders and join us!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of the sailors who did make the long treks from up north, especially Canada! Thanks for coming down and enjoying spring break and the Florida panhandle style of hospitality!!

All,

A short video clip of yesterday's top mark rounding in the first race.

Short vid of the F17's. Sorry there wasn't more, as we were too busy covering boats that flipped...there were a bunch of boats that went over.

Congrats to Bob, and thanks to Key Sailing for the 3 day run...very fun to watch on the water. Next year I'll be out there with you.


Regards,

C.

Its great to see how technology is changing. In the past we were happy to get results. Then we were happy to see results and pictures. Now we get to see results and videos.

Good to see the fleet out racin'. Looking forward to the season way up north......sooon.

Congratulations Bob, due to your cheerleading you drove this to a great turnout! Keep up the push.

Unless I am mistaken, the F17's had the largest class turnout.

The question now is...for the Nationals this fall at FWYC: Do you all want Gumbo or Pulled Pork sandwiches with your ice cold beer after a hard days racing on beautiful water, surrounded by white sand and frolicking dolphins...
