Wadewitz Regatta - Fairhope, AL, USA, Sept 24/25th

Thanks to Hank Saurage for his report;
The 2022 Wadewitz Regatta September 24-25th is in the books. Gorgeous weather but short on wind made racing very challenging for the small but talented fleet. One RS Aero 9, four 7's, and one 5 populated our fleet.

Saturday racing was held in light shifty NNW-W 5-8mph winds, with Eugene Schmitt and Chuck Barnes battling it out for finish line honors...Eugene finishing first, Hank Saurage and Kevin C Northrop correcting over Chuck (9 rig) for 2nd and 3rd respectively. In race 2 Chuck, in his 9 rig, streched out in the light breeze on the fleet , but not enough to beat Eugene and Hank. Eugene and Hank had great battle trading positions throughout the race, but Eugene made a timely decision at the leeward mark of the first lap to tack immediately just behind Hank and caught a nifty shift to put him back on top. The two battled the next two legs with Eugene holding on for the win. Hank second, and Chuck 3rd. the last race of the day started with the wind clocking to the west right before the start. Most of the fleet started down at the pin end to take advantage of the new wind direction and it paid off. Hank, Kevin, and Chuck had a close race with Hank pulling off a bullet, with Kevin 2nd, Chuck 3rd, and Eugene (boat end start) 4th.

Sunday was a crap shoot. High pressure prevailed with little to no wind forcing a postponement for more than an hour. With a hint of promising W-SW seabreeze filling in, The race committee sent us out and we were all on the water ready to race. Our hopes of getting a race off diminished over the next 2 hours as the wind never filled in. Races were called for the day (we had to be towed in!) and the Saturday results stood as the final results.

Our next big event will be Wurstfest November 5-6. Hope to see a large turnout for the regatta. Register at https://www.regattanetwork.com/event/25197
