What a Turn Out for Last Night Big Boat Racing

05/10/2019 9:49 AM | Keith Fetterman (Administrator)

This Thursday's race was held in gorgeous weather. Nine boats showed up, with many "over crewed".  The boats in order of finish were:  Ace, Wood n Wind, Intuition, Bravo,  Hyphen, Smilin Jack, Skye, Araminta, and Whistler.

The race committee were Zac Cooper and Dillon, Jim Llewellyn's crew for Solace. They did his RC duties while Jim is away in England. They set a perfect  windward, reach, run course, starting at Halvorsen's, going first to Miller bay, then Indianola, then home the finish at Halvorsen's. The race lasted short of one hour for the fast boats, and about an hour and a half for the slower boats. Corrected times will be posted later.

There were many Juniors aboard boats, and many Jr Juniors. The Thursday series looks to have a good start for a stellar season. Of note was the fine performance of Bill Walker's Skye, and Nick Paradis's Araminta which showed remarkable ability up wind, but sailing without a spinnakers were hindered downwind. New sails on the horizon??
