The Flying Scots experienced conditions at both ends of the spectrum for their midwinters this week. The fleet has a heavy population of lake sailors and Monday and Tuesday’s weather was a bit much for some, with 15-20 from the Northeast and a really lumpy Tampa Bay. Many competitors were happy with Wednesday’s dying breeze and Thursday was a complete drifter. That’s undesireable for us, but we were happy to get the two days of great action photos. The Flying Scots are a great family fleet, with many parent-child teams and even more wife-husband teams. In fact, they have an annual Wife-Husband Regatta. It was also great to sit in on some of their Top Gun training and debrief sessions. It’s always great to see sailors that are so dedicated to helping each other improve.
