Wet Your Thistle Regatta Initiates Ohio’s 2018 Sailing Season

On May 12 Hoover Sailing Club’s Wet Your Thistle Regatta launched Ohio’s 2018 Thistle Season with 7 races, 13 boats, and 36 sailors. Moderate winds shifted from southwest to northwest as the day progressed which meant fairly short legs for most of the Windward Leeward races. By Race 6 the wind was finally out of the northwest so the race committee could take advantage of the longer axis if the lake. Unfortunately, the wind started to diminish so the longest race also had the lowest velocity. Race 7 was back to the shorter legs.

Tom Hubbell with John & Betsy Yingling won with 3 1st Place finishes. Nicole & Jesse Shedden and Kyle Finefrock each took turns skippering to come in 2nd. Steve Lavender with Dave Stetson and Charlie Yingling earned the privilege of writing the Bagpipe article by coming in 3rd.
