US Disabled Sailing Champs: Up for grabs
Published on August 28th, 2015
San Diego, CA (August 28, 2015) – After a postponement at the dock due to lack of wind, the RC notified the participants of the US Disabled Sailing Championship regatta that there was a consistent breeze. The wind stayed consistent most of the afternoon, but was very shifty. The race committee were able to get in 3 more races for all classes with a few close finishes.
In the Triplehanded Fleet, First place swapped at the end of each race with Scott Ford ending the day again in First Place, but Judy Kowalesky is only 2 points behind. In the Doublehanded Fleet, Bob Jones and Cristina Rubke swapped places a few times throughout the day, ending the day with Bob in First and Cristina tied for 2nd with Ryan Porteous. The SingleHanded Fleet also had some close racing with only a point separating First and Second. Should make for interesting racing tomorrow, many teams are still in the hunt.
