Results, Summer Series Race 3

From Race Captain Bob:

It was good evening for racing sailboats.  There was wind,  and some chop depending on the moment.  Rick and Libby made up a course to send the racing fleet up the west side of Sand Is. to entertain concert goers by dazzling them with spinakers and the incredible skill and daring of the fleet’s fearless crews.  I am sure that it is to our credit that no one sunk, and there were no collisions within sight of the crowd.

If anyone has photos, please send them my way and I’ll post them for you!

From our esteemed Race Captain, Bob Barnes:
Conditions were near perfect for racing.  Wind speed was characterized at “lots”, and the river was “lumpy”.  Milo, celebrating his birthday, took his big boat & large party of well wishers and observers to the red-green can to set up the start line.   Read More…

From Race Captain Bob:

A bully race, simply bully!

Now that was fine sailboat racing weather. Wind out of the north at about 15+ and warm. The river was slightly lumpy, but nothing outrageous. Everyone moved smartly, er, well, everyone moved rapidly through the course. Read More…

Results, Spring Series Race 7 (July 1)

From Race Captain Bob Barnes:

Well, race #7 was hardly anyone’s day. Drippy skies and no air. It made you feel like Casey-at-the-Bat: there was no joy in Mudville. So, that was the last race, or no-race, of a series that saw too much disappointing weather. All we can say to one another is: That’s sailboat racing. (What a really stupid sport!)

Race # 7 was the throw-out race for all of us.

See the results from the entire series, along with some comments from Bob.
