Have you ever asked the question, why are most Regattas, two days? Now we know the answer, because if you sail on Lake Lanier you never know what kind of wind conditions there will be from one day to the next and sometimes totally different in the morning than in the afternoon. Race Committee lead by Jonathan Stewart, David Jackson, Elizabeth Jackson and Mary Lyons did an excellent job in looking for the best wind possible. They moved the RC several times to different locations, but had no success in finding suitable wind conditions on Saturday. They did start the cruisers but after sailing to the windward mark for about an hour, the race was abandoned and we waited with lots of sun and diminishing hope as the Saturday afternoon wore on. But conditions on Sunday were totally different (and better) and with an east wind and all the accompanying shifts and puffs they were able to complete 3 races for the regatta.
Ga Tech students and alumni did their usual excellent job in feeding us Saturday night and a big thank you to Mike Harrington, for answering the call and providing a canopy for shade Saturday night.
