SSA's Spring Series was a great start to the season with 13 boats on the line, a forgiving Southerly, and perfect weather. 

Congrats to Jeff Todd, Chip Carr, and Chris Ryan who won the day and thanks to everyone who came out!

WINNER'S WRITE-UP, Jeff Todd -- Racing was postponed on shore for an hour waiting for the wind to fill in. We had a light southerly breeze 3 to 8 knots and 3 races. The first race the leaders went to the left the first upwind leg, followed by going right the 2nd up wind leg. The 2nd race we won the race by going right the 2nd upwind leg, while some boats played the middle. The 3rd race it again seemed better to play the right going upwind. Less current, more wind to the right?  There were shifts all day it was not steady. There where areas of more pressure, with holes of no wind. Of course it picked up to 10 knots for the sail in.
