Easter Regatta Austin

Let's start off with the ending, on the left the winners and their trophies, on the right Fred Schroth, was he in charge or what?

I volunteered for race duties and was assigned to the weather mark boat on Saturday. It was very educational!

Friday night, a severe storm with large hail caused mucho damage. Bartlett Sails had roof torn off, I saw several hail dented vehicles and many houses lost windows and now have leaky roofs. Renee had to miss the races to patch her house.

Starting was delayed a bit while the thunderstorms moved over, then we got one race in before lunch. Here's a pic during the first mark rounding in the first race. Fred Schroth, THE MAN Note the form of the racer on the far left, winds were 15 to 20 for this race and it was a common sight.

Radials left to right with their overall rank, Kate Donnelly 5th, Johan Backstrom from Sweden 4th, Patrick Ryan 8th, and Ravi Subramanian 7th. Early in the first race. That could possibly be John Bowden, 162347, in the background, who won every radial race. No, this isn't Fred

The leaders round the weather mark the second time, Scott Young who won this race is leading Mark Eldred who finished 2nd in race 1.

Eric Faust was right behind them and was 4th in the first race.

Anthony Hudson was 4th around the mark here, but was 3rd in the first race. He passed Eric somewhere.

Frederick Backstrom, who finished 5th overall. He was consistent.

On the left is Matt Sterett, who finished this race 6th and took 4th overall. On the right is Doug Kern, 8th in race one and 6th overall.
