f I told you that 7 boats retired from this race that went from X- E- C- X, what would you assume about the race? I think an apt description of this race was painful. The pileup at E mark gave any Nascar race a run for the money. It is hilarious what people will do when they get bored.. As we all painfully drift around E mark, just ahead of me Ol Sole Mio puts up there black and red spinnaker and starts to drift slower. Here is the highlight of the race, Ol Sole Mio decides they are going to help their spinnaker by starting the engine and going backward. The spinnaker filled and we were all excited until we noticed there was something funny afoot. Obviously we did not follow suit, but I applauded their tenacity to make their spinnaker fly.
A picture is worth a thousand words and this picture shows the pile up at E mark. Thank you Dona Cardenas for this great shot.
A big thank you to Dona Cardenas for the excellent Gumbo this evening. I believe next week Wheeler Sutton and company are preparing our dinner for Week #5. Something new and different every week.
I want to encourage everyone to register for the Barefoot Open Regatta. There will be great sailing conditions, but getting a Tshirt with this great logo should be great incentive. I have to applaud BFSC, they put on a great party (this year it will be at UYC) and really know how to put on a top notch regatta. Go to BarefootSailingClub.org to register.
See you on the race course, Dana
