Well, apparently I didn’t write a report for Aug 1, so this one will have to serve for both
A big wind day saw lots of close racing. Emily, Heidi and Stephanie set up a short course with a 20 minute target time, and we managed to get 4 races in (wow!) A significant shift to the right meant that the later races were not quite square to the wind, but it made for great racing. The cat (Tony/Annie) scored its first win of the season in Race 2, and the 29er showed what it could do with the spinnaker in the gusts, but the Albacores were the consistent winners. Dominic/Jeremy took the night with 1/2/1/1 finishes, with Ken/Frank S (2/4/2/2) following. Jean/Frank (Albacore) and Max (Laser) tied with 3/5/5/3 and 5/3/4/4 finishes respectively.
The first of 3 races saw big wind and waves, while the second and third were light-air races. The course was much more square than the previous week (great job, RC) and good close racing followed. Carla/Steve (Tasar) took the night with 3 1st place finishes, followed by Ken E/Norm with 3 2nd place finishes. Jason (Laser) scored 3/3/4 to round out 3rd place for the night.
Standings so far
