2016 Deep Creek Laser Invitational Results

They gave us 9 nice long races. 5 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday.

The sailing was very challenging (in a good way). As Len put it, it was all about changing  gears as the wind picked up and died off and the waves from motorboats came and went and as the wind curved around the point and through the slot.

Len sailed great and placed second, only one point out of first. Tom Hutton also sailed great finishing 7th. The rest of us had our moments of glory and infamy. For example, I finished 13th but had a 2nd in one race!

The air was comfortable and the partly cloudy sky kept the sun from beating on us to much. The club put on a Carribean dinner on Saturday night and neighbor Jack let us all camp on his lawn. Plus, he built us a bon fire and showed us how to play Petangue, a french game something like bocce. – Nabeel Alsalam

2011 Deep Creek Lake Invitational Regatta Results

Fair winds and warm temperatures greeted the Laser racers the weekend of July 23 and 24 for the 2011 Deep Creek Lake Laser Invitational Regatta.

Sixteen Laser Fleet sailors raced six long and challenging races in the vicinity of Holy Cross and Deep Creek Yacht Club, Inc (Deerhaven).  Dave Mahan was the Laser Fleet Principal Racing Officer (PRO); he provided triangle courses with a windward mark finish with marks close enough to shore to provide some interesting and challenging racing in the light winds.  Six races made up the Regatta with racing so close competitors had to wait for the official results to learn the trophy winners.  Darrell Van Hutten locked up first place after facing heavy competition from the DCL Sailing School instructors, local competitors, and several off-Lake sailors.

Fifteen Laser-Junior Fleet sailors raced nine races in separate courses in the vicinity of Deep Creek Yacht Club – Turkey Neck. The Laser-Junior Fleet Principal Racing Officer (PRO), Josh Bullock, provided a variety of races including triangle and windward-leeward courses for the Junior Fleet sailors.  Lively discussions were held by the Junior Fleet sailors on racing rules and tactics. The Junior Fleet has some amazing young sailors, including first place winner Jon Benhart, who will be giving the more experienced sailors in the Laser Fleet a run for their money shortly.
