2003 PENGUIN INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
By John MacCausland
year’s event was held on
one got off without a hitch. During the
morning we measured all the boats and checked their sails. After a quick lunch it was out to the lake
for the first two races of the regatta.
The conditions were light, four to sic knots but pretty steady. After the two races that were sailed many
boats had good scores to start the regatta off with.
two dawned very hot, humid and no wind.
We all stayed ashore to wait for the wind and had lunch and an afternoon
snack. Then late in the day a little
wind appeared on the lake and off we went out to the lake. The committee was able to run one race before
what little wind there was finally died.
three was much the same as day two, hot, humid and no wind. Just after lunch out to the lake we went to
try for some more races. Again the
committee was only able to run one race before the wind shut down for the
day. With only four races completed we
did not have a throw out and had to count all our races.
& Erin MacCausland came out on top to win the 2003 International
Championship. Defending champions Steve
Lavender and Jory Hanselman finished second.
Past International Champion Sandy Rapp & Margaret rounded out the
with the racing there were parties each night with the kids and adults having a
great time. A job well
done to all that were involved in running this event.
