If there was any doubt that Fall is here, it was this wet and wonderful day! What a surprise after the light air race we endured last Wednesday. I know everyone had a fabulous time and a big thank you to Stefan Schulze, Amy Larkin and Chris Jackson for setting up the 8 mile course we had for this race. It was not an easy race, but the kind of day that really makes you glad to be on the water. The wind came out of NNW and I clocked wind speeds from 6-20 mph. We got some fabulous videos, though I am still working on sound quality and I had some difficulty in that some of the videos at the end of the race were accidentally put on Slo-Mo video or I was running out of battery, but I did not include those.
A super big thank you to Chris Jackson who provided some very insightful observations of the participants in this race. It was a challenging and fun afternoon. Thank you everyone that participated. After the race we all gathered at the LLSC clubhouse and had snacks and watched the videos. What a great way to end such an exciting afternoon.

The picture above is of #77 Strega on a close reach going to “H” mark. You can tell the wind speed by the huge wake behind Strega and her mainsail is fluttering. Notice the whitecaps in the background, it was an exciting day.
