Grand Masters Day 3: Prize Giving
The heavy air and racy, wet ice contributed to the majority decision to call the 2023 GM complete after two racing days. We gathered in an area sheltered from the wind for the award ceremony, a very Swedish affair with coffee and Semla, traditional Swedish cream buns served until Lent. Hal Bowman US1277 was recognized as a top competitor in his age group.
We are now 2 hours south of Lake Siljan at Lake Erken this morning, preparing for a two-day Swedish Ranking regatta. Of course, there is much speculation about where the European Championship will occur when it begins on 18 February. Everyone has their theory as to the location.
