Abstract (Document Summary)

Racing Sunday was difficult. The wind started light and went downhill from there. Mendelblatt had a fifth in the race with [Joe Blouin] first and [Mindy Strauley] third.

In the first race Arthur Anasov from St. Petersburg, sailing with 7-year-old daughter Sonja, was late to the starting area in very light air. But they showed the speed resulting from a new boat and sails skippered by an Olympic-level sailor with a very light crew. By the finish he was second in the fleet.

After a two-hour wait on nearby club docks, two more races were run for the 'Mills. Anasov did a classic port tack start from the favored pin end of the line in the second race and never was challenged. In the third race he again led by a small distance when a zephyr came his way just after rounding the windward mark. He and Sonja rode the wind to a commanding win.
