Thanks to Race Committee Chris Webster, Tom Graham, David Pope, Bill Boetcher, Kyle Weamley, Karen Christy, Reilly Christy, and Cyndi Stirne. We once again topped new records of attendance with 45 boats racing this night. With that many boats circling the race committee for the course and other boats taking measure of the starting line, it really helped when Tom Graham made the announcements over the radio. But generally RC does not answer questions from competitors, especially once the sequence has started for the first fleet. Please familiarize yourself with all the visual signals that RC can possibly use.
I had an interesting conversation with Chris Webster tonight before the race. He was bemoaning the fact he was going to have to use “E” as his windward mark. He really wanted to give us a fun race and that wasn’t going to help. But we were lucky this time because in the usual Lake Lanier style the wind had shifted almost 90 degrees since our discussion and now we were going to “F”. We had great (though gusty) wind all evening and great racing conditions.
Now that we have completed 6 races, the races are heating up and I noticed that the starts are getting much more aggressive. Good luck everyone.
Don’t forget the LARC after Dark, Moonlight race on Saturday. Summer is creeping up on us.
