Joe Ewing won the second national circuit regatta of 2018 with six bullets at Indian Lake June 23-24 against a field of Ohio locals and east coasters. This was Ewing’s second national circuit win, scoring first at the Cherry Blossom Regatta in April.
Heavy winds of 12-18 knts. and threatening clouds on Saturday kept everyone on their toes, with three capsizes in four back-to-back races. Sunday saw lighter 8-12 winds and sunny skies. The entire weekend was captured on drone footage so the class can see the amazing venue that awaits them at the national championship regatta in September.
The Indian Lake Yacht Club dished out pulled pork and tasty sides. Details from the sailors will be reported here in upcoming days. Until then, here are the scores.
