Doctor 2nd at DN North Americans

Mark "Doctor" Christensen (US 4824) did the Minnesota crowd proud at the 2014 DN North American Championships.

The regatta was a one day shoot out held on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, New York. The four race event featured incredibly smooth 4 day old black ice covered with hoar frost, a huge course and winds in the 18 to 25 range. The 2nd day of racing was cancelled due to sustained winds of 35 mph!!!

The Doctor sailed a consistent 3-3-2-4 but could not best Ron Sherry (sailing his blue US 44). Ron narrowly won the NA's crown beating the Doctor by just one point.

Those of us in attendance know that Mark was about 10 seconds from winning the crown. But that is story you'll have to hear from Mark.

Congratulations to the Doctor on a spectacular performance!
