Fort Lauderdale, FloridaMarch 4, 2007This past weekend I sailed the Radial Midwinters East Championship in Clearwater. There were 98 competitors, both male and female, sailing in the four-day event. I finished the event tied on 15 points with Paige Railey but won the tiebreaker on a count-back to take this year’s title. I had six first places to her five. Finishing third was Gintare Volungeviciute, from Lithuania, with 19 points.I started the week very sore after running a half-marathon. I felt I was fairly successful in this event, finishing in a time of 1:36.20., four minutes under my goal time. I was happy about that but I paid the price for the next four days. The fourth day was also the first day of the regatta but, luckily for me, very light breeze was forecast. And the forecast held true.
