This was a great regatta. Calvin Obara was handed a real challenge with the wind direction. He could set up on the north shore and we could sail in the wind shadow of all the trees on that end. Or we could sail in good breeze from the west shore but have the windward marks straight out. Calvin chose wind and it was not easy to round that mark or the offset. I can tell you that every skipper missed it at least once. Some missed it a few more times and one gentleman is going to have the mark number changed from "Mark 4" to "Mark 97".

The weather was beautiful and the competition was very close. I don't think I heard a single voiced raised in anger and no protests went to committee. What I did see was some very good displays of sportsmanship from Dave Ramos, Alan Perkins, Jon Luscomb, Robert Greer just to name a few. I have to tell, as Class Secretary, this made me very proud and happy to be a part of. Keep that sportsmanship going folks.

This regatta was also dedicated to the memory of Robert Dudinsky. Bob's son, Derek, sailed Bobs number 95 boat. Bob was with us on the water as well. A tiny vial of his ashes was taped inside the boat. Bob would have been very proud of Derek's sailing too.

It was also very nice to meet our current National Champ's dad, Mike Feldman, who sailed Peter's NCR winning boat this weekend. It was his first time sailing a 12 in a regatta but you can really tell there is a lot of sailing skill in the Feldman family.

Sunday started out with the same wind as Saturday but after the first three races were sailed, the wind clocked around to the SE and Calvin gave us a very nice course that had us sailing closer to the shore with marks we could round without much trouble. It was a great way to end the regatta.

There are scores posted on the EC12 Facebook page and I will try to post them here a little later. But for now the top five were:
1. Alan Perkins
2. Dave Ramos
3. Joe Walter
4. Jon Luscomb
5. Chuck Millican

Thanks again Calvin and company for a great event and we will be back next year.
