Boatload of Photos from July 8th Race

My apologies for not posting these sooner – I received them on a CD and my Mac wouldn’t read it… however I just discovered that Rick’s computer (which runs Linux) can read the CD.  So without further delay, here are photos of the July 8 race, which were taken by Barnestormer’s crew member, Steve Topaz.  Thanks, Steve, and sorry it took so long!

Results, Summer Series Race 6 (August 26)

Kudos to Bob & Crew for managing to WIN while the boat was slowly filling with water. What a feat! Photo by Libby 🙂

This from Race Captain Bob:

What a race!  It started out calmly enough.  The sun was shining, a light and variable breeze came from the north, then from the west, and the northwest.  A port tack was definitely favored, but you didn’t want to get  too close to the Oregon shore in the shadow of the bluff.  At the same time you didn’t want to be caught at the start line near the dock on Sand Island in a crowd, driven into irons on a port tack.   Read More…

Results, Summer Series Race 5 (August 19)

The Word from Race Captain Bob:

Results, Summer Series Race 4 (August 12)

(My apologies for the delay in posting these results – it’s been a busy week!)

This from Race Captain Bob:

T’was a beautiful evening for sailing.  Soft, warm breeze.  The water was nice and flat. Things were good for the lighter boats.  However, there was a strong flood tide.  The water was rushing up hill, which confused the reactions of some of us.  Water is suppose to flow down hill, I think.
