European Championship Complete
An optimistic morning skippers meeting brought about half the sailors derssed to sail.
But wind and snow had done its work, and teh regatta closed with 4 Gold races, three each Silver and Bronze, and two Aluminium.
Some Photos of the ceremony follow, including of B Zeiger, the European Champ, and Ron Sherrry, third.
Everyone packed up and hit the road, headed in various directions. I joined Derek and Adam and headed to northern Poland, a 12 to 14 hour trek. Uneventful, except we lost a trailer wheel half a kilometer from our destination. We went about a quarter mile on the rim to a gas station, and put on teh spare with two lug bolts from teh other side, and made it home. The Ice Gods must have been smiling on Adam all week. He drove both the boat and the car hard and all but made it home...
This will close out the trek log for teh World Championship for me. Thanks for following.
Two weeks until teh North Americans!
