Alden Shattuck had 3 top 5 finishes in 3 races Saturday
to take the overall title. 
While gale warnings kept sailors in the 2007 District 11 Championship off
the water on Sunday, Alden Shattuck had 3 top 5 finishes in 3 races Saturday
to take the overall title.  Several general recalls and later black flag
starts kept the aggressive 57-boat fleet at bay.  A persistent right shift
and favorable current on the left early in the day kept both sides of the
course competitive.  It was the kind of racing where 30th, was never far
from 5th and the competitiveness of the entire fleet was no more evident
than at mark roundings where small mistakes proved very costly in position.

Alden Shattuck, our eventual champion, Kevin Shockey, an Ohio-native, and
Henry Amthor, our 2006 District Champion, consistently finished near the top
of the fleet to take 1st-3rd respectively.  In the radial fleet Kim Couranz
fought back from an OCS in the first race to top the radial division
followed by Margaret Podlich and Jennifer Parrow.

Laser Fleet 10 and the folks at Severn Sailing Association led by Dorian
Haldeman put on another fantastic regatta.  Thanks to all of the sailors for
making this another great District Championship and we look forward to
seeing everyone out on the water this summer!
