D11 Sailors at 2011 Midwinters East

Laser Midwinters EastThis week is the 2011 Laser Midwinters East Regatta in Clearwater Florida.  Not only will some of the best sailors from District 11 be there, but so will some of the best Laser sailors from around the country and around the world. With 194+ boats pre-registered including a 78 in the Standard Rig fleet and 103 in the Radial fleet, it’s bound to be a great regatta.  Now if only the light winds that plagued the Florida Masters Week last week will give way to a little stronger gulf winds.

“Sailing World” Ted Morgan and Luke Shingledecker Featured

May issue article about the Midwinters East Laser Regatta did the laser fleet a great thing- The news and elements of the regatta not only featured the “celebrity” laser sailor; he interviewed sailors who make the regatta numbers and add class spirit to the sport. The author balanced out the story on the total laser regatta experience. Sharp closeup picture of Ted Morgan at the helm. It was another huge fleet regatta and a great read on those experiences at the starting line.
