Womens teams at the start - 2012 Lido 14 Womens National Championships Michele Pope
The Lido 14 2012 Women’s National Class Championships were held on Fidalgo Bay, Anacortes, Washington, on July 27, 2012.

The day brought perfect wind and weather for the six teams that turned out for the Lido 14 Women’s Nationals found themselves in a fast and furious battle for the top three podium positions. Fidalgo Bay produced its classic westerly with winds pegging the anemometer at a steady 13-15 mph.

Alexis Orsini and crew Ginger Orsini nailed the first start but came in third for the heat. The next four races evolved into a shoot-out between teams Mandy Smith/Amanda Wayne and Terry Johnson/Stephanie Carroll. Tied going into the fifth and final race, Smith and Wayne grabbed the lead early and never gave it up winning the 2012 Women’s title followed by Johnson/Carroll and Orsini/Orsini in third.

On shore, all of the Women’s Teams were beaming and happily complaining of sore abs from the hiking while gleefully boasting of the best sailing conditions of the week. A fitting competition and wrap up to a great week of sailing and hospitality thanks to the volunteers of Anacortes Yacht Club.
