It was a thunderous beginning of the second series of the Wed night races. RC of Jonathan Stewart and Bill the Cat crew (Bill Quinn, Will Shirley, Steve Sudderth and Rachael Green) made the maximum effort to run a race. I think many people have included their crew in their family circle and if not, there was always the example of the masked crew of Strega (thanks for being a good example). But we ended up following the RC around, trying to find something and when the wind came up so did the thunder and lightning.
Technology is great, now we have tools to aid in the decision-making that RC makes for each race. Not always a popular decision (you can never make everyone happy), but usually a safe decision. Most of us came prepared for a possible rainy night, but fortunately the rain (did you see the rain in Cumming) stayed in Cumming and we didn’t get our sails wet.
Look forward to seeing everyone for Race 2. Dana
