Maine State DN Champ Results!

The Maine State DN Champs were sailed in fine style last Saturday on Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson, ME. Good turnout in spite of a last-minute regatta call (spring in NE, what are ya gonna do?), great lodging, and gusty, shifty breeze made for a great day of sailing. The ice was re-frozen snow or something and the ride was BUMPY but that is part of the game, isn’t it? If you didn’t lose any parts from you boat or fillings from your teeth you are set for awhile….

Very physical sailing with puffs and lulls coming and going very abruptly- Big changes in direction also meant big sheet adjustments all day and lots of throwing weight around in the boat. And plenty of positions gained and lost!

Thanks to everyone who made it- Especially Bob Crinion who made the trip from Nova Scotia to sail with us and also Kristin Buckley for keeping score-

Can we squeeze one more weekend out of this season? Stay tuned….
