Overall Results for WLSC 2014 Spring Racing Series

Ahoy WLSC Racers!

Sorry for the late posting of the subject results, but we have been on vacation (sailing in the VI’s).

We had a total of 50 captains participate in the 4 races this Spring! This was 5 more than in Spring 2013.  The wind conditions were unusually light for Spring racing, but at least two of the races had winning elapsed times of less than 75 minutes.

Congratulations to Skip Greene who captured 1st place for the Spring Series in the A-Racer class!  Skip and crew had a difficult 1st race but rallied to win two races.  Congrats to Kevin Donovan for repeating last year’s results by capturing 2nd place in the Spring Series; he won 1 race and 3rd place in another race.  And congrats also to Tony Catoe for earning 3rd place by winning 1 race and 2nd in another; oh but for that one mark rounding….

The first 3 places in the PC class could not have been any closer!  Congratulations to Clarke Lucas for capturing 1st place for the Spring Series in the PC class!  Clarke won 2 races to edge out Geoff and Heather Patterson who took 2nd place. Congrats to the Patterson’s for their consistent effort in capturing four 2nd places this Spring; if only they could have collected 1 more point in one of their 4 races…. And congrats also to new racer Rob Remme for earning 3rd place; Rob won 1 race and had two 3rd places.
