District 15 started out the spring season by sailing at the Austin Yacht Club Easter Regatta hosted by the one and only Fred Schroth! Lake Travis was once again 100% full to the delight of the sailors! Day 1 was light and shifty with a few good runs of wind lasting the race day. Sunday was a very different story with high winds peaking into the low thirties. The “Fred” course (Windward-Leeward-Windward-Reach-Windward-Leeward-windward), provided quite the challenge for all sailors involved. After one race, the race committee decided to call it as a great number of boats were either upside down or damaged. Ryan Minth came out victorious with a fantastic regatta.
Next, we moved on to the Seabrook Summer Solstice where sailors were once again greeted with fantastic conditions with 10-20 knots of breeze both days. Raleigh Christman was unstoppable the whole regatta, finishing with nearly half the scores of second and third!
Next up, we head to HOOD at HYC on September 21/22, Arlingtons Laserpalooza on October 5/6 and lastly our district championship, Wurstfest, on November 3/4! On a side note many from Dallas will be attending the Colorado Laser Championships on August 16/17 to avoid the grueling summer heat of Texas.
