Don Q Day A Perfect Day for Sailing Snipes

Day one at the Don Q was what you would call a ’chamber of commerce day’ for racing Snipes, PERFECT. Winds were 8-12 K out of the SE with lots of sun and temps in the high 70’s. 39 teams from a long list of countries enjoyed the day, but as usual some more than others. Ernesto Rodriguez and Megan Place continued their domination of the Winter Circuit with a win in race one. Nick Voss and Tom Fink won race 2 but due to a Z flag violation on one of the several starts for race 2 ended up with 8 points for his victory. Race 2 had 2 Z flag starts and at least 8 competitors received Z flag penalties and 5 were OCS and did not restart. The scores are on this web site under Regatta/Results Don Q.

We expect more wonderful condiotions today and we expect Augie and George Sazabo to join us having finished the Star racing on Friday. This should stir things up!
