I think the thing that stood out in this race besides the gorgeous day and very shifty wind was the start. Normally a pursuit start is pretty relaxed because almost everybody starts at a different time but today there were a lot of people in the starting area long before their starting time and there seemed to be a lot boats trying to sail in the same small area. It was the trickiest start I have experienced in a pursuit race and lots of fun. As we raced to “C”, it looked like we were all going to round “C” to starboard at the same time. From the comments made after the race, there was some contretemps at the windward mark, but once the spinnakers were up, the fleet started to spread out and raced to E.
A big thanks to Tedd Meinersmann and the BFSC for getting us started on this gorgeous Fall afternoon. We had a record number of boats that came out to enjoy this second race of the series. The next race will be on Sunday Oct 17 sponsored by UYC.
Here is the order of the finishes, Note we have a new boat on the lake, Slingshot a C&C 99, owned by Kent Rogers. Congratulations Kent.
Attached is the results according to fleet. I might mention that the scores would have been done earlier, but several people were unsure of their finish time.
See you on the race course, Dana
