The Columbia Gorge Racing Association is playing host to the 26 Standard rig Lasers and 52 Radials. Day One, yesterday brought typical Gorge conditions with winds in the 20s. On Saturday conditions were very un-Gorgelike.
The westerly spent much of the time below 10 knots. The Radial fleet is being dominated by Malcome Lamphere who usually sails in his home waters of the Midwest. The standard of the standard rigs is Derick Vranizan, who has six firsts and a second.
