2008 Results Page

     The 2008 event was our 25th regatta. Lots of celebrations were had about that including a cake with candles and a poster that everyone signed for display in the trophy case.  Saturday morning we were greeted with flat water and nearly no breeze. We went out, sailed a leg and the committee towed the fleet home for lunch.

     After lunch we were greeted by 3 to 12 mph winds from the East. Easterly winds must cross over 1200 foot hills before arriving at 680 foot above seal level Lake Travis. The winds were consistently centered around about 90 degrees but the winds were extremely tricky to navigate.  The fleet enjoyed four fine 45 minute races at the front and endured four annoying one hour races at the back. The near perfect sunny blue sky day made up for any suffering on the course.

     Sunday morning the fleet was greeted by cooler temperatures and cloudy skies and lots of wind. The wind again centered around easterly but the shifts were huge and the velocity changes were outrageous. Even the sailors at the top of the fleet occasionally found themselves fully hiked and lying in the water while frantically yanking their tillers to avoid a weather capsize or the dreaded "in irons while backing past the fleet" condition.

     Eric Faust had a weekend to remember. He was leading the event after six races and all he really needed to do was sail around the course a couple more times to claim the title. He made it through 2 1/2 of the four weather legs and then drifted back to the harbor with a torn sail and a three piece mast. As Eric Frantically scrambled to find parts, a sail and re-rig he was unaware Doug Kern, who won race seven and led the regatta by 4 points had more important things to do than sail the last race. Doug has young daughters and, when your kids are that age, Easter egg hunts trump sailboat races. Eric returned to the course with a six point lead and his favorite left side favored shifty wind conditions.

     Gavin Rudolph took off the official Easter Champion Belt and presented it to Eric.

Yellow means: signed up as Radial. The Radial fleet was too small so full rigs were provided and  rig switching per race condition for the yellow highlighted numbers was absolutely encouraged.
