We went back up to the Columbia River Gorge for the second summer in a row for the Optimist Northwest Championships. Simon wound up 3rd behind the Subbiah twins. Wind was mostly light but there were some twists in the conditions, but most notably a heat wave.
Our first Long Beach regatta. Viewing is great form the Long Beach pier. Simon and Liam won 2 bullets in silver fleet on first day. Some of the best high school racing I've seen. 30 colleges also compete and give a presentation about their schools' sailing programs.
