Day 2 Report

the prospect of a light air day the R/C postponed racing until early
afternoon and sent the fleet out around 1230. Once again the conditions
were trying with breeze on both sides of the course and lots of holes
to deal with. This event has certainly been one of the most challenging
Class Championships I can remember and the high scores can attest to

Going into today, yesterday’s leader Paul Stephens, was comfortably
in the lead by six points over Jim Martinez’s ‘Loose Nuts’
team with last year’s runner up Eric Kownacki in third five points
back and trying to recover from a deep place (15th) in the first race.
Britt Williams from OKC was in fourth place, seven points behind adrift
of third. Britt has truly been on of the stalwarts of the class and
has hooked up his boat ‘Fayest’ and driven to many of the
West Coast events. His enthusiasm and Corinthian spirit is one of the
reasons the class has remained active outside of the West Coast and
everyone appreciates his commitment to the class and to Oklahoma sailing
in general.
