sailed sat/sun: meyer, markham, kennedy and molly ran

good wind till noon when kennedy showed up, not that we're blaming him. 3/4" snow ice on top, stayed hard, didn't need angles. little rough but ok. sun sailed 9am till noon, 10 mph wind, smoother, stayed hard till 11. i used 1/4 dull inserts makham used blunts then angles. didn't make any difference i still beat him. so i am declaring myself winner of the first annual easter regatta. we also made a contact with an ice-checker for mille lacs. when we left at 2 pm the sun was killing the ice. and increasing our sunburns. but the miller tasted good, forgot my lacrosse lager.
