Racing 7/8/2017

Beautiful clouds and light air.
The forecast was for very light air but we ended up with just enough breeze for 3 races. Race committee set up Windward-leeward courses with two downwind finishes (shortened in one of the races) and one upwind finish. They were just about the right length and RC made some little tweaks along the way for the wind shifts.

John took two bullets in the first 2 races and Burton was first in the last race. I went from DFL in the first race to taking a couple of seconds. Larry got a 3rd in the 1st race. And Gary got 2 thirds.

Overall since we had not sailed since the Wrangle all 8 of us were happy as can be to be out there!

This summer has been a little strange. Lots of rain. Not complaining there but sometimes it has timed itself for our sailing time and/or there has been not enough wind or too much. Let's hope it continues to be strange as far as more rain but we get better sailing weather for our Saturdays.    

Setting off it did not look too good - wind-wise! 

Pam joined Sandy and Miles on race committee.

Doug joined us on his Laser and gave his young friend a sailing lesson.
