Red Fox Regatta
« on: September 11, 2012, 01:48:46 PM »
Hi all,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that we took our little Ultimate up to do a couple of twenty mile races across Lake Charlevoix in northern Michigan. Day one was an 90 percent big air up wind with one beam reach kite ride where we ended up second in class. Pretty happy with the result as we were smallest boat in class. Day two was perfect U20 weather with 75 percent down wind with vast majority on plane. Results were first in class for a class win for the weekend and first corrected overall on the second day of racing. As the attached photo shows we had some stiff competition. Had alot of people looking at and talking about our little boat.
