In which the kids and the women take to the high seas in round-bottomed boats.
And by high seas, I mean lovely Lake Norman, NC, which had a combined power-boat and wind-generated chop that splashed the Flying Scot fleets relentlessly.
Though we lost count of the number of rainstorms that moved through on Sunday, the Women's Flying Scot North American Championship and the Flying Scot North American Youth Championships both held three races in conditions that were up and down (14 knots to 4 and back to 14, and shifty enough to make the racecourse a challenge).
Despite plans to field a Fleet 168 Women's team, my migraine won another day, so Skipper Monica Morgan and I stayed on shore. The yeuts in question -- Greiner and Stew -- steered their respective boats with their respective dads into first and second places respectively, totally carrying the torch for Fleet 168. Yay boys!
