Steve Everest Wins The 2009 MC Invitational Regatta

13 July 2009

Article courtesy of Coye Harrett - The final day of the 2009 MC Invitational brought another early start time of 9AM in hopes of getting a race off before the weather systems would roll in before early afternoon. With a six point separation between the top five boats, having a good race was going to be crucial. At the time of the start the wind was out of the South East around 5-6 MPH. Once again the port angle off the starting line was the favored board. With the wind being lighter with some holes, it was very important to stay in the pressure and keep the boat moving. Whoever worked the middle left side of the course was going to come out on top, and that's exactly what Steve Everest was able to do; win the last race and seal his 2009 MC Invitational title.

A big thanks is in order for the Clear Lake Yacht Club and their members who put on a great regatta. They also provided housing for nearly every sailor along with a pier for overnight boat mooring. Clear Lake is a must attend venue!
