U.S. Nationals Sunday, Jan 23 AM Update

Message from the Governing Committee and PRO:
Well, Mother Nature has sent us a curve ball. We sailed Lake Monona today, and it’s sailable with the snow, but the current temperature does not allow for racing. The Governing Committee intends to proceed with the regatta. We have to investigate alternate sites to continue the regatta. We have sailors proceeding to both sites to evaluate them and report. We ask that everyone stand by, stay put, and we will have another update at 4 PM CT.

2022 U.S. Nationals Update #3 Jan 21, 2022
Walled Lake in Novi, Michigan is no longer under consideration as the site for the 2022 U.S. Nationals. Safety, launch, parking, and course size were factors in that decision. Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin is the primary site. Two ranked sailors are inspecting and sailing the lake this morning. Weather will play a factor in the decision to hold the regatta. We are waiting for a report from a professional weather forecaster.  Racing is still scheduled to begin on Sunday, January 23 at 10 AM local time. Next update is Friday, January 21, at 2 PM CT/ 3 PM ET. Thank you for your continued patience.
