WOW-WAH 2013 wrap up

The 2013 WOW-WAH Regatta was again a successful event, with over 50 women racing in three classes.
Winds ranged from 6-8 kts on Saturday, and held 7-9 kts on Sunday, with overcast and some fog making for challenging navigation in the later afternoons.  The WOW fleet was particularly competitive, with a general recall needed to start one race, and only 2 points separating most competitors over 5 races.
Winners were:
WOW – Sandbox (Skipper: Jennifer Arrington)
WAH Performance – Aquabella (Skipper: Helen Brierley)
WAH Cruising – Yassoo (Skipper: Judy Alfter)
Congratulations to everyone who raced.  Special thanks to Event Chair Sasha Zaripov for her tireless multi-tasking, and to everyone who worked to make this event a success.
