The Mid-South Regional in Shrezeport (a traditional Nebraskan pronunciation) started off on Friday, the 21st. Sailors were welcomed with a great breakfast, and racing started mid-day. The first two races were sailed in medium air, and the winds backed off quite a bit during the third race. Race Committee waited a bit before sending sailors in with not enough wind to hold quality racing in anymore. The evening took the group to Daqs, a local restaurant. The food was great, and the company and conversation was even better!
Saturday didn't have a promising forecast, and sadly, that was played out. The lake was very calm, so sailors entertained themselves by playing cornhole, measuring boats and sails, and generally solving most of the worlds problems. Racing for the day was officially called in the early afternoon, so many enjoyed the on-site keg for the rest of the afternoon, or went to explore other parts of the city. Saturday evening was the traditional cook your own steak dinner with lovely music on-site. It was a beautiful evening.
Sunday brought cold and rain, but also some wind. The sailors who ventured out bundled up to withstand the low 50's temps, but the racing was high quality. The winds were mostly steady, and three races were held pretty quickly before sending sailors in to tear down in the rain.
As always, the Shreveport Yacht Club members were amazing hosts, and the Mid-South remains an annual favorite for many sailors.
