2010 GTYC LASER FALL REGATTA
and Babel Cup

hosted by — GRAND TRAVERSE YACHT CLUB (GTYC)

sanctioned by — TRAVERSE CITY LASER FLEET

Saturday, September 18, 2010 — Traverse City, Michigan

The 2010 LASER Fall Regatta was held on Saturday September 18, at the Grand Traverse Yacht Club. A total of nineteen boats sailed in this, the second leg of the Babel Cup. Racers were treated to a variety of conditions. PRO Eric Lind started the first race in a shifty 12-15 kt Northwest breeze which would eventually die by race #5.

 

Ken Swetka (Crescent Sail Yacht Club) came out firing on all cylinders and basically put on a Laser Clinic for the fleet. Most impressive was his down wind tactics and speed. Congrats to Ken on some great sailing and the overall victory with 8 pts. Mark Lyons (GTYC) and Tom Babel (GTYC) were 2nd and 3rd with 15 and 18 pts respectively.

 

Top junior was Pete Kirby-Miller (Glen Lake) in 8th place overall with Abigale Skibowski (TACS/GTYC) the top female in 9th.

 

The 2010 BABEL CUP was also decided by total accumulation of points for the spring and fall regattas.

PETE COMFORT (TACS/Torch Lake) took the cup by winning the spring regatta with 12 pts, added to 22 pts in the fall, for a total of 34 pts. Jamie Stuursma was a close second with a total of 36 points.

 

Special thanks to PRO Eric Lind, Mark Boat Bob Clark and crash boat Jim Sorbie. At the conclusion of sailing, the fleet was treated to refreshments and Hot Dogs from WARES FROSTY TREAT.
