35 sailors took part in the great racing and fun at Macatawa Bay Yacht Club July 29-31.  See the cumulative results for race scores and this link for the handicapped Master scores.  Congratulations to Rob Koci, 2011 US Masters Champion.  A more detailed report follows.
Rob Koci of District 3 pulled off the monumental feat of winning the Canadian Masters and US Masters within just weeks of one another. At the Canadians he took an early lead in the regatta in the light air and then held off the challengers in the breeze to win. At the US Masters, he had a head-to-head battle with JP Del Solar Goldsmith throughout the light air regatta, only to emerge as champion after the handicap points were applied. In addition to being a top-notch Laser sailor, Rob is also District 3 secretary!
The US Masters were held the end of July out of Macatawa Bay Yacht Club in western Michigan. The racing took place on Lake Michigan. Four races were held the first day in light air and chop. There was no wind the second day so the sailors stayed on shore and when racing was abandoned for the day, many took off to do sightseeing around the towns of Holland and Saugatuck as well as going to the sand dunes and beach. The third day saw the return of the light air and chop and three more races were held.
The Macatawa Bay YC did a super job of hosting their first Laser Masters regatta. The sailors enjoyed great food, beverages and hospitality on shore and an organized team of volunteers on the water. Final results can be found at the regatta site on
