DAY TWO - ILYA X CHAMPS - FOUR HEAVY RACES

REPORT BY NANCY DREISSEN 

X Inland participants woke up to a gorgeous morning at Gull Lake with the forecast of light to moderate winds for the day. But as the first race started, the winds began building and were approximately 15-20 mph from the northwest throughout the morning. During the second race of the morning, wind gusts surprised the X boaters, especially in the senior fleet, which was sailing in the windier northern section of the lake. Several senior fleet boats tipped as they tried to complete a W2 ½. Safety boats, coaches and spectators were on the spot to lend a hand. The junior fleet's course, also a W2 ½, was shorter and less gusty.   

The winds kept gradually dropping for the two afternoon races. Both fleets completed one W2 ½ and one W2.
