Race Report: Sunday August 7, 2022
By Bob Asher
Yesterday was another stellar day of sailing at Lake Jacomo with typical shifty and gusty winds blowing 8-10 and building throughout the afternoon. All four fleets saw exciting races packed with chills and spills.
Newer skipper Sean Deidel, hot off a great showing last week at the Cowtown Showdown Regatta, scored his first race win against old pros Barry Skikne and Fred Langford. Sean is one to keep an eye out for the rest of the summer.
The fleet welcomes their newest member, Jim Haddock on hull #1069. Jim had an epic sailing day yesterday, sneaking around Rob Mayer and Bob Asher to take 2nd place in his first race. Then he capsized in heavy wind in the second race and nearly sank the boat.
Bob Hyland narrowly edged out David Gibbin in both races and series results are very very close.
It was great to see the club's Sonar, "Good Vibrations" out on the course, skippered by Stacey Honer and Paul Zahner with a crew of brand new student sailors. Meanwhile on the M15s, Tina and Pat Kershaw edged out Wes Ory and Brad Heffron in the first race and then Wes attempted to kill Brad by capsizing in the second race. Fortunately, Brad emerged from his last sail at Jacomo unscathed to sail away to new horizons with his family. We all wish Brad the very best and thank him deeply for his years of outstanding service to Jacomo Sailing Club.
