Current forecast for Sunday, February 9th is for a high of 59 degrees with wind from the SSE at 10 to 20 mph. How lucky can we get with this weather, right? Noteworthy that “Saturday’s” low will be 29 degrees and hits around 4-5AM Sunday morning. It might be a little chilly when we get there but should be well above the cutoff by race time. We had a few swimmers last weekend in very similar conditions, so I’d stick with a farmer john and a spray top despite the warm air temperature. Folks of lighter frame will probably want to pack their radials.
I got an email from ILCA D12 Secretary Rob Bowden about upcoming Laser regattas and am happy to share this info. I think it would be great to get some HIYC Laser sailors on the road. I’ve checked the D12 schedule against the HIYC regatta calendar and there are no conflicts with our dinghy events. Their first event for 2020 is the Lake Lanier Laser Southerns on March 7/8th.
