Moving Day at Jet Nationals

GALESVILLE MD – Brent Barbehenn and Kate Erklauer solidified their Day 1 lead at the 2016 Jet-14 Nationals by winning all 3 races on Day 2. Despite the somewhat promising forecast, the winds failed to materialize as the fleet raced in generally light and fluky air all day. Race 5 saw a fresh breeze fill in from the right that buried boats that went to the other side in the short, 3 lap affair. After some course adjustment and with new found confidence, the race committee sent out the Jets on a 5-lapper that took about 5 hours to complete. The final race of the day was perhaps the most challenging, with the lead boats finishing well ahead of the main pack. There were no changes to the top 6 places overall, although the top boats separated from the boats immediately behind. However, there are now four new teams in the top 10, including Barb and Tom Joudrey (Mohican Sailing Club, OH) who found the light conditions much more to their liking. The final day of racing kicks off tomorrow at 9:30 am with two races expected. Winds are forecast to be out of the north at 6-12 kt, gradually subsiding into the afternoon.
