The wind made up for last week, and a great time was had by all! I counted 6 Albacores, 4 Lasers, and a Hobie out (with at least 9 actively racing, and a couple others out for a leisure sail) and even more folks who showed up for the apres-sail. High gusts (along with a bit of equipment failure) led to several capsizes before the first race but the wind calmed to about (a relatively steady) 7-8 knots for most of the evening.
Old-hand Frank and rookie Jean took home the most points of the night, with a 1st place finish in the first race, and a 4th place in race two (Albacore #86). Only one point behind, old-hands Andy W and Liz took 5th place in the first race, and 1st place in race two (Albacore #90). Rounding out the top 3 was club newcomer Luc who placed 4th and 3rd (Laser #281).
A special shout out goes to all our rookies who came out (Jean, Fanny, Andy L, Monica and Bill — apologies if I forgot anyone), our race officer Mario, and Frank and Jean for bringing the food/beverages to the apres-sail!
