Women's Team Wins Silver At S2 7.9 Class Championship Regatta -
The Women's team took Barigenae #78 to the Racine Yacht Club for the S2 7.9
Class Championship Regatta and made a respectable showing for their first off
lake regatta. Jill Schleis helmed for three hard days of racing on Lake Michigan
placing 4th over all in the Silver Division, 3rd on Saturday Silver Division and
First in the inboard division. Betsey Day served as Tactician, Peggy Elath
trimmed jib and flew the chute, Judi Trampf trimmed jib and Anma Ingeana on
foredeck. Conditions on Thursday were moderate winds but rough seas. Storms
blowing in from the west shortened the race day to only one completed race.
Friday brought calmer seas and a variety of wind direction and speed, which
allowed for 4 complete races. Saturday allowed three races to be completed.
Next year S2 7.9 CCR is in Holland Michigan and the team hopes to convince
more of the S2 fleet to join in the fun.
