2002 Cowtown Classic Regatta Results
A forecasted front with 30 mph steady and gusts to 51mph motivated the 21 registered sailors to complete the six scheduled races (one discard) in a marathon series of shortened courses on Saturday. Shifty East 8-15 mph winds with gusts to 18 mph made local knowledge non-existent.
Three races were sailed in the morning followed by lunch during which the much needed masseuses were kept busy. The three afternoon races were completed in an increasing breeze with light rain topping off the final race.
What was slow: starting early; 720’s; shooting the wrong corner.
During the break between sailing and dinner, the Masters and GM’s pretended to feel fine while the amateurs expressed feelings of being a bit sore. Quote of the day: "I’m tired". The prime rib dinner capped off a full day followed by the presentation of awards:
1st Dave Bandstra
1st Master Curt Miller
1st Grand Master Doug Stryker
1st Mega Master George Fisher
1st Woman Judy Hearn
As we have done for the last 3 years, the Cowtown and Cowan Lake's "Cowan Scowin" regatta in October will be scored together with the winner taking the State of Ohio Championship.
