Loulou Wins Cedar Point One Design

15 boats made it out for what was to be a very trying regatta. Day one only finished one race in a dying breeze with Revelation showing good form in their home waters to take the gun, followed by Strange Brew and Conundrum. Loulou was over and took penalty turns at the start to put them in last at the first mark. The next run was a reach, and on the last two legs they passed nine boats to scratch out a sixth. Sunday brought more fickle light winds and rain squalls. Bad positioning on starts or lay lines took a heavy toll on many boats, putting teams from the front row to the cheap seats with a few extra tacks in no wind and current. Loulou just pulled out reasonable top four finishes, while most others posted at least one pushing double digits. That was enough to take the gold, followed by relative newcomer Dave Willis and family on Solution. Za Jelliffe’s Arete rounded out the top three, also by sailing a consistent regatta.
