The Mid-South Regional was held on April 22-24, 2022. Eleven sailors gathered in Shreveport, LA for this annual regional and were not disappointed.
Friday saw moderate winds, and in typical FWC fashion, the results were quite mixed over the first six races completed, with four different sailors earning at least one first place finish.
The winds kicked up on Saturday, and really made things interesting. A strong, gusty breeze brought favorable conditions to some sailors, while making it a challenge for others. Father and son sailors, Chris and Xander Wessels, owned the day, combining to win four of the five races completed.
Winds were backed off some on Sunday, and allowed three more races to be completed. All sailors had a great event, and and the party was fun as always. Shreveport continues to be a favorite regatta for the FWC - see you next year!
Overall top three finishers:
1st - Doug Seib
2nd - Mark Ralph
3rd - Xander Wessels
