April 2022 Season Opening Regatta

Our first Regatta for points of the 2022 season was held on Saturday, April 16, at Oak Hollow Lake. Turnout was light probably due to the combination of it being a holiday weekend and the weather forecast. A total of 6 boats participated, 2 monohulls, 3 catamarans and 1 Hobie Tandem Island.

At the start of the race the wind was light so PRO Sue Cole set a short windward/leeward course and the first race was set for one lap. But during that first race the clouds dispersed, the sun came out and the winds picked up. The race committee measured winds up to 21 MPH. So the second and third races were 2 laps. Highest winds measured by the race committee for the day were 25 MPH. Wind gusts hampered some boats at times but fortunately there were no capsizes.

Congratulations to Rusty and Janet Phipps for winning all three races in the Monohull division and Chris and Mary Malcolm for winning all three races in the Multihull division!

Congratulations to all OHSC sailors who braved the uncertain conditions and huge thanks to our Race Committee and P.R.O.!
