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.
