Fred Schroth's Easter Laser Regatta

by Pam
Fred has been putting on the Easter Laser Regatta in Austin for 30 years. His regatta is sort of like the pulse of Laser District 15 in Texas as to potential participation numbers. It's always the first circuit stop in District 15 and rarely do any of the other other circuit stops match his participation numbers. 

However, Fred isn't the best about posting the results in a timely manner. So we thought we'd help him out with this handy little summary of his participation numbers over the years as well as links to where you can find the results. We couldn't find some of the earlier years' results so if anyone has any information to fill in the blanks, please send it to us and we'll update the chart. 

You can find out everything you need to know about this year's 31st Annual Easter Laser Regatta at the above link.  It's always Easter weekend and the local talent is some of the best in Texas.  They don't always travel or do the circuit but they rarely miss Fred's regatta. 

Scott Young is already blogging about getting ready for the Midwinters in Florida. He has no expectations for how he'll finish, but let's face it, an old, fat, rusty, out of shape, Scott Young would easily be in the top 5 but a Scott Young that's training ... look out.

  1. Here are a couple of the years you are missing. (From D15 reports in The Laser Sailor. God knows why I still have copies from over 20 years ago in the basement!)

    1992 - 25 boats - Scott Cheney
    1994 - 32 boats - Lars Hansen

  2. And here is one more - from a report by Fred on the Laser Forum.

    2004 - 25 Full 10 Radial - Mark Eldred. You were second overall and first master that year Doug.


    1. Those 2004 numbers were the boats that actually finished at least one race. Looks like the total number of boats registered was actually 37 Full and 17 Radial.

  3. Wow! Thanks for filling in some of the blanks. As the chart comes together, it looks like Fred has done a pretty good job with participation.
