Tough Going at Gov. Cup

The annual Austin Yacht Club’s Governer’s Cup Regatta was held on April 7 & 8 and was listed as the first stop in the 2018 Texas Sunfish Circut.

Saturday was one of those exceptional days on Lake Travis in northwest Austin as the temperatures plummeted to a low of 45º with wind gusting to 24+ knots throughout the day.   It became quite a challenge for the AYC Race Committee to handle the large keelboat fleet let alone our Sunfishes.  Alas, there was no racing on Saturday.

Sunday became a completely different day and races were set into motion.   The fleet sailed 5 total races in lovely sunny 5-8 knots breeze.

David McCary was able to take the regatta with a total 10 low points and start the season on the top of the Circut leaderboard.
