OHSC kicked off its 2013 sailing season on Saturday, April 20th, with its first regatta of the season. A cool morning with about 10 mph winds (with heavier and frequent gusts) greeted 10 of our sailors. With the cold morning temperatures and still cold water temperatures, two boats opted not to sail, so we ran three races with 8 boats. Thanks to Leslie and Tait Humphries for the morning refreshments, and thank you to Kim Walker, Mark Benham and Paul Walter for serving on race committee.
Congratulations to Phil Andrews and Tait Humphries as race winners (Phil in races 1 and 2, and Tait in race 3) and to Warren Mitchell for consistent performances in all three races.
Thank you to all who came out today to support the club. Nancy, it was great to see you today after your week in Disney World with your grandchildren!
Next event will be our Open House at the City Marina on Tuesday, May 14th, at 6:30 p.m., where we invite interested folks to an Introduction to Sailing. All members are welcome to attend so we can answer questions from prospective sailors.
