The wind conditions at the start were light and variable, but the wind picked up enough to continue the 8 nautical mile race. We had ten boats show up at the line. The light and variable winds continued throughout the race, but we had a lot of fun. This included a lot of practice setting and dousing the whisker pole.

Bill and Judy Kelner’s “Jump Start” from Sandusky Sailing Club was the overall winner of the race and the 2019 Stein Hospice Cup. Therefore, they qualified for the 2020 National Championship Regatta.
Congratulations also go to Mic Kaufman from SSC for winning Division B.
Hotly contested was the Pickle Jar award won by Oley. Next year, he might use his GPS.
If you missed the racing, there are future opportunities. The Cruiser Fun Race 2 is scheduled for August 17 and Robby’s Regatta is set for September 14.
