UK CHICAGO ONE DESIGN SAILS HAVE PROVEN RESULTS

Small One-Designs off to a Great Start this Early Summer

The early summer sailing season has kicked off with impressive results for UK Chicago sails in various small one-design events. From dominating the first Women’s MC National Championship to excelling in the COLORS Regatta, UK Chicago customers consistently lead the fleets, showcasing superior speed and racing skills. Here are some highlights:

Woman’s MC National Championship Regatta

The first-ever Women’s MC National Championship Regatta took place at Lake Beulah from June 7-9. Although high winds led to a Friday clinic by John Porter being held as an indoor chalk-talk, the racing continued in shifty conditions on Saturday and big puffy breezes on Sunday. UK Chicago customers excelled, with Andrea Jarecki taking first, Christine McNeill second, and Vicki Clayton third.
