Big Mac delivered today. After a brief postponement for the wind to settle, the RC cranked off five races in 8 - 20+ kts under the bright Nebraska sky. There was a dismasting, a holed boat and one trip to the hospital (4 stiches) to keep the chase boats busy.
Tom and Cindy Erdman struggled to maintain their lead over Stephen and Sabrina Cooley, but the Cooleys' heavy air prowess won the day. This is Stephen and Sabrina's first North American Championship - after coming in 2nd five times.
