The Cherry Blossom Regatta is in the books, and as always the competition was great. For those in attendance you know it was great to get together and hangout with good friends. The Cherry Blossom Trees were in full bloom this weekend and with light air on Saturday many of us had plenty of time to admire the trees, and beautiful scenery along the Potomac River.
First day at the Midwinters in DC. Currently in first place is Bradley, second is Aspery and third, Sanderson. Light winds today with lots of challenging current making it difficult to make headway in the light and spotty breeze. Lots of fun, however, at the after party and dinner at the King Street Grill in Old Alexandria. The competitors are looking forward to new day on Sunday with a strong breeze expected.
This day had a lot more breeze. The wind was right out of the south between 10-15mph. Bradley won the first race in which all boats finished within about 15 seconds. Aspery won the next race and McClinchie won the last two races. When all was said and done Bradley and Aspery tied for first and Bradley won on the tie breaker. The results are below.
