Happy Wild Weather Wednesday! The only thing predictable in the last month was that it was going to rain. If you made it a whole day without rain, then that was a great day. I thought this was going to be one of those days, but I was sadly disappointed.
If someone up there didn’t want us to race this night he/she did a good job of discouraging us. First, it starts to rain as we motor/sail to the starting area. Then the rain quits and it looks like we are going to have some wind and they start the cruisers. The cruisers make it halfway to the windward mark when the Melges 24’s start and then Wild Weather Wednesday showed its ugly face with a 60+ degree windshift followed by a complete shut down of the wind. The RC abandoned the race at this juncture and I appreciate their announcement over the radio.
Thank you to the RC committee volunteers, Jim Chambers, Randy Baker, Ken Blankenship, Bob Bumgarden, Linda Hoopes and John McCarthy. They did a great job in recognizing that this evening was going to be painful, if allowed to continue.
I want to remind everyone that we will have dinner served at LLSC clubhouse after the next race. If you are docked at another marina, we invite you to park your boat at our ramp/guest docks and walk to the clubhouse for dinner. Will Brown will be serving burgers and brats after this next race..
Another reminder that we need more race committee volunteers and we would be also happy to accept volunteers to make a Wednesday dinner.
For RC, please contact Jonathan Stewart (770-598-4346), email@example.com or sign up on the website https://www.llsckeelboat.com/rcinfo.html.
See you on the race course, Dana
