The Vintage Gold Cup and ISCYRA announce results of the first day of racing in light and variable winds. The three scheduled races were completed with very close racing.

At the top of the day's result are Brazilians Lars Grael and Mauricio Bueno with a 5-1-1 performance. In second place is local skipper Josh Powell and his crew Luke Lawrence of Stuart, FL with finishes of 1-8-3. In third is the Illinois team of Joe Londrigan and John Wysockey who finished 2-10-8.

Sailors knew going out that the lake was going to be tricky due to the light winds and its easterly direction. The race committee was able to manage the shifty winds quite well, getting high praise from the sailors.

Three more races are scheduled for tomorrow. The wind forecast, if correct, will make sailing even more challenging as the velocity declines from today.
