It's hard to imagine how much more proud father Chris and mother Kathy could be. This is truly a great example of what makes Lido sailing Family Fun. Ten of the 24 teams were comprised of family members sailing together, fathers and kids, brothers and sisters and husbands and wives. Terry Johnson of Long Beach won the Silver Fleet winning the tie-breaker over Steve Vincent of Marina del Rey's fleet 2. Team Elsharhawy, cosisting of the 13 year old twins Adam and Nora finsihed third.
Santa Monica Bay was pretty passive for the day's racing as the predicted clearing never really materialized and the wind never fully established itself creating a course that was generally favored on the right side but also created a few game changing shifts to the left. Winds stayed in the eight to nine knot range with some occasional puffs where both skipper and crew would sit on the high side. This created ideal conditions for the ultralight Teams Elsharhawy and Ho to post their best finsihes of the regatta.
