Gulf Coast Champs - Galveston, Texas, USA

Write-Up

RS Aero Gulf Coast Championships - Sea Star Base, Galveston, Texas, USA, May 18 -19.,

Thanks to Ash Beatty for his summary;

Saturday's racing showed who was in hiking shape as 4 great races were held in 15kn gusting to well over 20kn at times. I sure was glad I dropped down to an RS Aero 7 rig. Danny Plesch took a commanding lead into Sunday's races as Hank Saurage demonstrated his gybe-capsize manoeuvre the first race and forgot to read the course in the second! Of course no-one has gotten better at capsizing and recovering than Chandler Self who battled it out to the end in her RS Aero 5 rig.

Sunday saw much more civilised racing as we sailed 4 more races in 10-15kn, with Danny cementing his victory.

Special thanks to Jack Yoes and his RC crew from Houston Yacht Club who did their usual exceptional job running the event. Thanks also to KO Sailing for providing beer and charter RS Aeros.
