Jet-14 Nationals – Day 2

It was another wild day of sailing on Lake Sacandaga but this time we did manage to finish 3 exciting races.  The weather  forecast was calling for WSW winds in the 10 kt range, which was probably where we were at on the long run out to the race course.  By the beginning of Race 2, winds again approached class limits in the upper teens and stayed there the rest of the day, with occasional puffs blasting through in the mid-20s range.  The observations tell it all.

A few boats came in early as the winds built but 3 long races were completed.  Bryan and Tiffany Parker were consistently at the top of the pack and have built a 4 point lead over a trio of boats from Edgewater YC: Dave and Sue Michos, the Gemperlines, and Lee Sackett.  Weather forecast for tomorrow calls for sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and a perfect 6-10 kt southwesterly wind.  Tune in tomorrow to see if the Parkers can hang on for the first Jet-14 National Championship.
