June Regatta

100_2980Oak Hollow Sailing Club held its June 2013 Regatta on Saturday, June 15th. A beautiful day greeted 23 of our members who arrived. Our newest members, Bill and Janet Inmon, and Genell Hartman attended, and the Inmons crewed with Melissa Palmer. We had a guest, John Andrews (Phil’s Dad) visiting from Pennsylvania, who joined us on the water in Phil’s Sunfish. We had 17 member boats represented, with 14 participating in at least one of the three races which were held. Mike DuPont and Chuck Reavis raced for the first time in 2013.

Thank you to Mike and Marie Schram for furnishing refreshments, and to Art Martz and Les Eger (and their pet snake they found in the Race Committee boat) for handling RC duties. We were able to hold three races with West winds varying between 4 and 8 mph.

Congratulations to race winners Phil Andrews (Races 1 and 2) and Mike Nordahl (Race 3). Also, Andy Squint had two top 4 finishes in Races 2 and 3, which were excellent results for a Hobie 18 in the wind conditions and relatively tight courses required on Oak Hollow. Way to go guys!

Thanks to all who participated. It was a great day on the lake!
