October 2013 Pumpkin Regatta

1378179_589865341061668_1308541190_nOak Hollow Sailing Club held its final regular season regatta on Saturday, October 19th, under cloudy skies and light winds. 25 members participated in the activities, with 13 boats sailing in at least one of the three races.
Thank you to Connie Sloan for her wonderful baked goods, coffee and refreshments prior to the races, and to the Eldreds for organizing the “Pumpkin Race” details. Race Committee duties were handled by Michael Nordahl, Phil Andrews and Joe Holder – thanks guys! Thanks to Tom Kirkman for providing the race committee with his “patented” floating clipboard with water proof time sheets. (Race results have been known to blow into the lake before).
Congratulations to race winners Dave Heap (our guest with the very beautiful wooden British-built (National 12 ?)), Warren Mitchell and Ken Irgen, and Melissa Palmer and Rosalie Austin who won the “Pumpkin Race”. Great sailing, ladies and gentlemen!
Thanks to all for a great final club regatta for 2013! Let’s begin preparations for the Inter-Club on November 9th at Lake Townsend, and don’t forget the Camp and Sail next weekend at Jordan Lake!
