Fantastic Sailing at the 2013 Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup Regatta!

What a great weekend!  Two straight days of good breeze (10-15 from the E/NE throughout the weekend) gave us some tight racing on the course and some hungry and thirsty sailors for the legendary steak & salmon BBQ on Saturday.  Those of us that camped at the park enjoyed two beautiful nights out in nature along with our annual pilgrimage to Tim’s for some extra libations on Saturday evening.

Congratulations to Team Constants (Steve, Mike, & Dave) for a strong performance and the overall regatta win.  Team Shadowfax (Nabeel, Laura, & Jess) took 5th overall after a great 3rd-place finish in the final race, and thus earned the honor of top Fleet 50 finisher.  Full results here: 2013 Potomac Cup Results

Overall we had 24 Lightnings and 2 Flying Scot’s compete, making for a great turnout!  We’ve posted a couple of photos below (with links to more) to whet your appetite, and a full writeup will also be posted soon, so keep checking the website!  Finally, and perhaps most importantly, many thanks to our sponsors — Yuengling and Annapolis Performance Sailing — and to all of the volunteers that made this regatta such a success — we really could not have done it without you!
