2006 D5 Championship/King of Spain

 

Photo and report by Rick Burgess:

26 boats arrived on Friday to compete in the 5th district championships. Every fleet in the 5th district was represented thanks to the hard work of district secretary Mike Marzahl.

On Saturday we left the dock under bright sunshine and a gentle 8 to 10 kt westerly breeze to sail 3 of the scheduled 5 races. The Race committee as expected was on station and set to go on time. When the day ended it was Rick Merriman and Rick Peters in first and new Santa Cruz fleet member and former World Champion Freddy Loof and Anders Ekstrom one point behind, and Jim Buckingham and Eric Monroe in 3rd.

Upon returning to the dock we were greeted with cold beer, pizza and salad. From what I saw it was smiles all around as it was nothing short of a great day at Cal Yacht Club.

Sunday arrived and we were again treated to great RC work and a really nice breeze of 10 to 12 kts. In the end of the day it was Freddy's day as he and Anders did what they needed to do to win both The King of Spain and the 5th district championships.

Again Cal Yacht Club greeted the fleet with cold beer and a buffet of make your own tacos.
