August Regatta Recap

On Saturday, August 19, OHSC held its August 2017 Regatta with 31 members present. We had a beautiful, but warm day, with 9 boats participating.  The wind picked up in time for the Race Committee to start and complete three races, with the final race run as a two-lap event.

Special thanks to Bruce (and Sally) Leigh for arriving VERY early to launch the pontoon boat and the safety boat (and also for retrieving them at day’s end), and to Sally for bringing refreshments. Also thanks to Pam Lineberry and Paul for refreshments, coffee, ice and water, and to Jerry and Gene Eldred who brought the apparel for sale.

Thank you to our Race Committee members headed by PRO Mike Mullins, with Allison Mullins, Mike Nordahl, and Dan Schuee.

Congratulations to Gary Gooden who won all three races in the mono-hull class (great to get you back out on the water, Gary!), and to Dave Heap and Alex for two second place finishes. Race winners were spread out nicely in the multi-hull class, with Roger Bates and Pam, Warren Mitchell, and Chris Malcolm and Mary each winning a race. Good sailing ladies and gentlemen.
