WLSC 2013 Spring Racing Series Results

Ahoy WLSC Racers!

Thanks for supporting the WLSC Spring Racing Series through your excellent participation.  For the 4 races, we had 12,11,12, and 10 captains sign up at the Skipper meetings which was a very good turnout. The wind conditions were pretty good for Spring racing and one race even had some very challenging 20-30 kt winds. 

Congratulations to Skip Greene who captured 1st place for the Spring Series in the A-Racer class!  Skip and crew finished strong by winning the last two races.  Kevin Donovan started the series with a great win in the first race, but in the last two races had a slight disadvantage without use of a spinnaker in the lighter winds.  Congrats to Kevin for earning 2nd place with a strong Batting avg.  Yours truly benefitted by the misfortunes of missed races by Wayne, Mike, and John to capture 3rd place.  But my crew still worked hard!

Congratulations to both Clarke Lucas and Paul Poulakis for tying for 1st place for the Spring Series in the PC class!  Paul won the first two races and Clarke won the last two races, and their best 3-race Batting Average was identical at .944!!  Special recognition to Paul for coming out of nowhere this Spring and capturing first or second places in all 4 races.  Congrats also to Marc Nachman for taking 3rd place in the PC class, with a very good run in the strong winds of race 2, and a good run in race 4.

So the table is set for a competitive and fun Fall Race Series.  But next are some Summer FUN races for which I will put out a schedule within the next week.  You all are invited to join in on the fun!
