Turnout for the Linc Davis was up by a third from last year. Four DN’s raced on smooth hard ice, full sun and ten degrees. Wind was a wonderful 8-10: low enough to keep the wind chill at bay but big enough to bend masts and hike. Thanks to Bryce Geele for running the racing, taking photos and counting laps.

Racing was close, with wind shifts and light spots giving many lead changes. The ice was 3+” and flawless, except for a thin spot deep in the marshes.
This lovely plate of ice is just at the northern edge of the latest blizzard track. If only an inch or less falls it will probably blow clear. We’ll check in with the spies later today for an update and post it here. Friday looks good for sailing, Saturday offers light and variable at this point.
Well done Bill. Way to find and put on a competition. Logistics just didn’t allow.
