The Inaugural RS21 North American Championships
Seabrook, TX- The Inaugural RS21 North American Championships are the first event hosted in Lakewood Yacht Club’s new fleet of 12 RS21s with 17 teams competing in a round-robin

format. Day one saw nine races sailed with two rotations allowing each team to sail six races in a pristine 10-15 knots.

Travis Weisleder of Bay Head Yacht Club dominated day one with four first places in an extremely competitive fleet. Glenn Darden of Forth Worth Boat Club sits in second after a solid day with two first places. John Lovell of Southern Yacht Club. Local Lakewood Yacht Club Team helmed by Danny Pletsch is on the move with a solid second set and win in the second to last race.

This event embodies the purpose of this new fleet purchased by recipients of the 2019 US Sailing National One-Design Club award. Lakewood Yacht Club’s vision as explained by former Commodore Ash Walker is to provide boats with the versatility to be used by members and guest for multiple programs such as learn-to-sail programs all the way to National Championship racing events, offering opportunities to walk in, lower the boats into the water from their sling slips, and go sailing for a cost much less than traditional costs of boat ownership.

Careful consideration was taken prior to hosting this event, with special precautions being taken including full washdown of the boats each day, limiting each team to rotating between two boats, and buffs handed out to each competitor.

Racing will continue through Sunday culminating in Gold and Silver fleet racing to determine the event champion. Complete event information can be found at www.RS21Fleet1.com
