2015 Michigan State Championships / Bayview One Design


10 teams representing 5 different fleets made the trip to Crescent Sail Yacht Club to fight for the title of Michigan State Champion as part of the 2015 Bayview One Design Regatta. Saturday saw the sailors make their way out to the race course with moderate breeze and temperatures in the low 80's. Only two races were possible before being sent in due to a nasty storm front approaching from the West. Jack Jennings and crew ruled the day with a 1-2 after displaying an upwind gear that couldn't be matched by the others. On the second beat of Race 2, Bob Teitge and Mike Lorenz made huge gains on a tactical decision to sail inshore toward the approaching front and held their lead all the way through the finish. They finished second with a 4-1 followed by Mike Phinney and crew with a 3-3. It was a wild ride returning to harbor as the winds piped up and the clouds released a deluge of rain on the hearty souls. Upon return to the club for Day Two of racing, the teams were met with wind, waves and more rain with the air temperature dropping 30 degrees to a balmy 51F. RC made the call right off the bat to abandon racing as there was nothing in the forecast that indicated the weather would subside. The results from Day One would stand with Jennings and crew being crowned champions. Many thanks to all those who attended. It was a memorable event as it has always been in the past.
