Northwestern As it should be

Happy to report, after the second try the Northwestern Regatta had a great first day. Two races were raced in all four fleets.

Nice long course with a medium breeze. Snow flurries on the ice.. with a spots of older, stickier drifts, and no hazards that I saw.

Fleets consisted of the DN, Renegade, Skeeter, and Stern Steerers. We all raced on one long course and the starting area was close to the launch area, so that made it nice if you wanted to come in and change equipment, or have a snack.

No snow flurries.

Right now, the wind is picking up and Mike and JD are heading out on the haywire. The Michigiander is out.. and a few of each of the fleets are out having some fun.
Brats were provided by steve0 to finish the day off.. Day one was pretty nice.
