Laser GCC’s 2017, Corpus Christi, TX


What an awesome way to end a solid training camp in Corpus… sweeping the podium at the Laser Gulf Coast Championships!

Firstly a massive thank you to Corpus Christi Yacht Club and all their staff for making both the training and regatta so easy and fun! We all can’t wait to be back shortly.

Thank you to the race committee and judges for running a great regatta, it was truly world class! A special thanks to Shannon Wood Bush

Congratulations to all the GCYSA Laser team, you all pushed and supported each other all weekend.

The regatta provided a mixed bag of conditions which each sailor adapted to extremely well. The team left Corpus last night feeling confident heading in to youth champs at the end month.
