2003 Lowcountry Regatta Results
Beaufort Yacht and SC, SC
June 21 - 22, 2003
(Results and narrative submitted by Frank Pontious on July 7, 2003)
Conditions:Light and shifty out of the northeast with an flood tide of 2 knots.
Upwind was good, downwind was challenging. This was a multi class regatta so there were others beside MC's to contend with - all going a different speeds. From the ponderous Sea Island One Designs to the Hobie 16's to the Lasers and Sunfish.
The river here is less than a one mile across and runs north/south and with everyone trying to stem a flood tide in light air and arriving at the leeward mark at the same time it made for some interesting events around the mark.
