We sailors or should I say some sailors are made of very tough stuff. The predictions for race time were not looking good and because we have had thunder/lightning every day for the last week, I was not sure how this evening would go. But as I looked out over the water at 5-6 pm, conditions looked like they were going to be good this night.
So I set a long course hoping the wind that was present at 6 pm would continue during the race. It looked pretty good until the beginning of the pursuit starting sequence at 8pm and then it began to rain. The wind started to fail as the night crawled on and the boats ended up short finishing at H.
Here is the order of the finishers:
The next and last Moonlight race will be on Saturday, Aug 21 with a 98% full moon with moonrise at 8:14pm. I will send a reminder email the week before this last Summer race.
See you on the race course, Dana
