2010 Laser Masters Great Lakes Championships
Hosted by Sarnia Yacht Club
There 4 races on Saturday with winds from 5 to 12 knots.  The weather mark ended up quite close to the beach which made for some challenging tactical situations.  Each start had the current (a bit over 1 kt) pushing everyone over so if you look in the Full Results links you will find some OCS scores.  On Sunday we were greated by fog and no wind so we waited ashore for an hour before getting towed out. Some nice wind filled in and we started a race but part way through it got weird so it was abandoned.  The wind shifted about 90 degrees, settled, and off we went again.  The wind stayed fairly steady throughout this race at about 5-6 kts.  The wind and current were almost the same direction which made for a very long beat and fairly quick run.  The race comittee tried to get another race off.  We started and about 20 minutes later only made it 1/2 way up the beat.  They were also monitoring weather and some nasty front was approaching so they thought it best to ttow us in.  We got heavy rain while putting away the boats but nothing too bad.  Later that day we heard about a tornado just to the Northwest in Michigan.

All in all from RC to food to billeting the Sarnia group did a great job!
