Once again, even though we had a rainy Wed. morning and afternoon, it cleared up for our Wed. night race. I think everyone was quite happy with the 8-10 knots of breezy wind and according to some 40 degree shifts (what else do expect from an easterly). RC used F as the windward mark and it must have been a great show for all the people who sit on the point and watch the sunset. A big thanks to RC of Steve Sudderth, Matt Dollacker, Daniel Postell, Savannah White, Doug Ireland, Tony and Jordan Milligan, Sidney Brown, and Rachael Green for the fantastic job this night.
In the Low Cruiser fleet, Greg Cash has successfully held off his competitors, but they are getting closer. Jim Chambers in the High Cruiser fleet has won 2 races while David Wright who won Race 2, is pushing him hard. Michael Linkeit and company are reigning top dogs in the Melges 24 fleet, while Davis Macleod and Tony Cellamare are waiting for them to make a mistake.
Everybody in the Large Sportboat fleet has won a race, so this is going to be the fleet to watch in the upcoming weeks. The J-80 and the J-88 are duking it out in the Low PHRF fleet, while in the Mid PHRF fleet the big boys of Bailey White and Tommy Sawchuck are trying to keep the little guy, Parker Thran off their tails. The J-24 fleet has a rivalry going between the top 3 boats. They each have won one race. Kyle Meyhoefer continues to dominate the High PHRF fleet, but Tedd Meinersmann and Jim Rapp are giving him some stiff opposition.
Thank you everyone for signing up for race committee for Series 1, we still need people to sign up for Series 2.
On the food front, we are talking about having a cook out in the gravel parking lot by D dock. Will is waiting for fair weather to satisfy our hunger, we will keep you up to date about our plans. I am sure Mr. Brown will be happy to accept volunteers to help with the cooking when we plan to do this.
Speaking of plans, the Dogwood / Ga Tech Open Regatta is being revamped post-storm style and we are planning a cook out (most likely at the beach) on our new date of May 20 after the races with trophies on Sun May 21. More details to come next week after we have our meeting.
Scores will also be posted on our facebook page each week.
Thank you Will Shirley for this great Wednesday night picture.
See you on the race course, Dana
