North Sails WIN and take places 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
The A Scow Nationals were held on Crystal Lake, Michigan – a big turnout and great racing was had by this awesome fleet. The Championship came down to the last day. Rob Evans was winning going into the final races with Andy Burdick and a group of others very close behind. The final day brought light air and shifty conditions.
