DN NA Report #8

And to wrap things up…. All of the New England competitors have made it home safe and sound. The drive isn’t that bad when you have three drivers and a good watch system….

Home and ready for he next one

Home and ready for he next one

The awards ceremony was back at the Willows On The River hotel restaurant (“The Skyline”) and the Toledo guys did a great job of emcee-ing the event and a great time was had by all! After a quick burger, a few laughs, and a strong cup of coffee we said our good-byes and hit the road. We certainly left on a high note!

We had a grab-bag of conditions through the week- warm and slushy, cold and light, frigid cold and high winds, and every kind of precipitation possible. And to top it all off we had thunder and lightning one night. Cool. Can’t say it was a dull week!

Final results here:
Worth it as usual- always fun to see the gang from near and far, nice to get out of Dodge and enjoy the Best Sailing On The Planet. Period. If you haven’t attended one of these things you should. If you missed this one you should have been there!

So put it on your list and start planning. In the meantime stay tuned for the next event!
