Thanks to Paul Stouffer, Mike Iuvone, Hudson and Bridget Brock for the great job of doing race committee this week.
I was transported back to February as I experienced the cooler temperatures and crazy wind we had this evening. Everyone reached back into their closets and grabbed their winter foul weather gear, gloves and hat. It was an evening full of wild shifts and puffs coming out of nowhere, often happening so fast that you didn’t have time to deal with them unless you had someone reading a crystal ball (which I keep in the sink of my boat). Race committee gave us a great course and ended the race at a perfect time.
We are halfway through this series and it has been full of surprises and lots of wind (often more than I want). We have had some surprises this series, but the biggest has been the incredible growth of the Cruiser fleet. This fleet has grown from 7 boats on the racecourse last year to 16 registered boats this year. It has grown so large that we had to split the fleet. Great job in getting out the word, what a great time we have on Wednesday nights.
See you on the race course, Dana
