Cattail Results 2011

Nice breezes and a hot sunny day made for a good afternoon of racing on Saturday June 4th in Toledo Ohio.   Windsurfers were start five in a senior sailing feet of about 30 boats total.    On a separate course a fleet of about thirty junior boats were battling it out.     With only seven entries the windsurfer start turnout was disappointing this year but six of them were Prodigy One Design kits so that made for some  great one design racing with just seconds between finishes.

The course was an I shape with  a start line on the port side of the RC boat and a finish line on the starboard side.     Windsurfers and  Catalina 22  did once around while Interlakes and Hobies did twice around.     Somehow it magically worked out that  we never waited more than about fifthteen minutes to get started again.    The first race saw 10-20 winds and last two saw 5-10 winds which were idea conditions to test both the high and low wind sailing skills of competitors.

The windsurfing winner was Glen Gardner from Grosse Pointe Windsurfing Club with three bullets.   Below Glen accepts his award ( a very nice gear bag).
