OHSC June Regatta


OHSC held its June 2014 Regatta on Saturday, June 21, with 26 members present, and 16 boats represented. We had several guests who joined us for the day, Dave and Alex Heap who brought their beautiful wooden National 12 to race with us, and Mark Christian who crewed with Andy Squint. New members Steven Boul, Chris Malcolm, and Larry Webster joined us as crew members. Mike and Marie Schram brought some work colleagues to visit with us and they took them out in their boat to give them a taste of Oak Hollow Lake sailing.
Connie Sloan provided our wonderful fresh fruit and other items for our morning refreshments. Race committee duties were efficiently handled by Mike Mullins, Tom Kirkman, and Stephanie DeLair. Thank you so much ladies and gentlemen!

Fourteen boats sailed at least one race during the three-race regatta. Winds ranged from 1 to around 6 mph with some slightly stronger gusts. Congratulations to Phil Andrews with 3 first place finishes and to Melissa Palmer, Carl Simmons and Jerry Eldred for their multiple top five finishes. Gene Eldred also had one of his best regattas with a 3rd place and two other top half finishes. Thank you to all who participated!
