FRED HERR WINS 2012 COTTONWOOD

Fred Herr won three of five races to win the 2012 Cottonwood Regatta at CYC.

19 boats took to Lake Wylie to compete.  Seven boats from Lake Norman and Lake Murray Yacht Clubs joined the CYC fleet for the annual event.

The winds were light and the courses were short.  CYC sailors showed their expertese in these conditions winning four of the top five positions.  

Tom Martin took an early lead after three races finishing 5-2-1.  The fleet took a break as the wind faded. But just when it seemed we might be done for the day, the RC called us back out for two more races. Fred won them both to take the regatta.
