Randy Phillips and his team certainly pulled the rabbit out of the hat this race. It has been exciting having completed our 5th race of this series with only one more race to go. This has been such a popular series, I noticed we had guests out there tonight. I saw Jim Chambers in his new boat, Wind Spinner, haunting the race course while Rene Ward in his boat Queen Bee along with a Viper that followed us around the race course.
We had some good racing this night which will affect the overall standings. In the Cruiser fleet Sails Call has sailed into the second position overall, while in the High PHRF fleet, the Pussy boat (Bill the Cat) continues in first while his father “the Red Baron” is solidly in second with She-Devil pushing him hard.
The Mid PHRF fleet has one of the closest races with the battle between Your Move and Perpetual Motion who are tied for the second position. But this last race of this series will most affect the Low PHRF fleet because Iniki, Renegade and Wave Bye SR are all less than one point away from each other. This last race should be a lot of fun to watch.
The Melges 24 fleet in their usual fashion have a tie for first between Fellowship and Rapscallion and then another tie for third between Ex-Kahn and Lamorak.
This last race should be an exciting evening.
Just a reminder of upcoming events. The Encore series will begin on Sept 16 and the first race of the Fall LARC series will be this Sunday, Sept 13.
Good luck to everyone, Dana
