or… Click Here.. Race 1 Friday June 19 2015 -Report
The winds where up this afternoon a nice 14 knots and I said great for tonight’s race….I spoke to soon at 4 the winds had
dropped to 3 knots great I thought to myself no body is going to want to go out but as the skippers meeting came, magically everybody started to appear as if they where being called to by the sirens of the sea blah blah ……
Awaiting Richard’s Report for the week..
We almost didn’t race again this Friday but in the last
minute the wind gods decided to be kind and gave us a
breath of wind……7 knots, with that 13 boats started and the race was a foot. Anonymous was gracious at the start and gave buoy room to Lorna Doone after all this is fun racing. I must say that as a group the starts have become very good as the whole fleet cross’s within minutes with no stragglers left behind.
The winds picked up to exciting 8 knots with slight shifts along the course. After the race finished the wind picked up even more making it even harder to come in. All in all it was a good evening to be out on the water.
A reminder that Beer Can Racing will start Friday June 13. We will meet at slip 65 for a skipper’s meeting at 5.
5 minute start sequence starts at 6, official start time is 6:05.
Hope to see a great turnout.
Social gathering after race at clubhouse.
