Georgia State Championship

Valdosta, GA, USA, March 8, 2020

The 2020 Georgia State Snipe Championship was held at the Valdosta Yacht Club in Lake Park, Georgia on March 7 & 8.  The weather was a bit chilly, but the winds were good both days.  PRO Pat Lambert was able to get in three races on Saturday afternoon and two on Sunday morning.  Therefore, racers were able to drop their worst race.  There was only one boat that capsized, and that was on Sunday morning just as the first race was beginning.  Thanks to the VYC Safety Squadron, the sailors were not in the water very long, but they chose to come in for warm showers and dry clothes rather than finish the races.

 

Sailors came from Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee, as well as Georgia.  Results are listed below.
