A fleet of 71 one-design boats took part in Cleveland Race Week at Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland, Ohio from June 14-16. Seven fleets competed, including twenty Tartan 10s seeking the title of T10 Lake Erie Champion.
Light and inconsistent breeze on Saturday allowed only the J/105s to complete a race. Sunday dawned with winds between 14-16 knots, and all fleets were able to run three races. The Tartan 10s began their Championship on Friday, when they tallied two contests in breeze between 10-12 knots.
