2014 U.S. Youth Sailing Championships - Fast and Furious on Day 3

2014 U.S. Youth Sailing Championships Jake Fish
At the 2014 U.S. Youth Sailing Championships it was a fast and furious Wednesday on Lake St. Clair. The talented 156 sailors, race committee and Grosse Pointe Yacht Club volunteers exhaled this morning, as they were graced with fantastic sailing conditions for the first time this week.

Sustained winds between 13 and 18 knots under sunny skies and temperatures in the low-70s provided great sailing for everyone involved in this US Sailing National Championship. However, the conditions were extremely challenging with unpredictable puffs and shifts throughout the day.

New champions will be decided on Thursday. Start times have been bumped up an hour to 10:00 am EDT.

Quote of the day:

Sean Schotthoefer, Event Chairman - 'It's special to be able to host this championship on the 100 year anniversary of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. These young sailors are the future of the sport. It's a great opportunity for these kids to come here and race at this great venue. Our volunteers worked hard to make this a memorable experience and a first-class championship.'

And her sceptical response... Hoh! Daddy, Hoh!

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
