Not a lot to report this race night. Very light air meant we only got one race in, before the second one was cancelled due to lack-of-wind. It was all for the best though, just as the fleet got back to shore a bit of thunder rolled in, so good call by the RC.
The exciting part of the race was just at the end, when Carla and Ken were neck-and-neck on the downwind leg, each trying to score 3rd. The wind had shifted slightly, and Ken was to windward of Carla. With just a few seconds before the finish, a tiny gust must’ve hit, because Ken accelerated and got a foot or two over Carla. I didn’t see any Rule 42 violations (not that Ken would do that anyway) so the tiny-gust is the best explanation I can come up with (because Ken was windward it affected his boat before Carla’s). Contrats, Ken!
(edit — I forgot that Michael was helping out the race committee. Doing RC leg work entitles you to the average points sailed this race, so Michael scores a 3rd place finish too)
