Sundays racing saw 6 boats make their way out to the race course in conditions that were building from a light breeze to what ended up being gusts to 20 knots from the NE.
Race 1 had 5 starters but only 3 finishers with the Lightweight Sharpie retiring before the start with problems. Both 3710 SNAffU and 3572 Relience 17 elected to use the new style jibs and both met at the top mark together ahead of the fleet with nothing but a layer of gel coat to separate them. After the excitement of the first mark rounding behind them, SNAffU lead for the remainder of the race, closely pursued by 3257 Think Big. Think Big declared the victor on corrected time, Relience 17 a retirement.
By the start of race 2, the breeze was solid with strong gusts, but underneath the dark clouds was softer breeze. Only 3 boats started this race, 2 finishing with Stirfry withdrawing on the second lap. SNAffU declared the winner on CT and Think Big 2nd.
Next race day is 9th December. If you want to get involved on or off the water, please reach out. We have a club boat available to sail and positions on the Race Officers boat.
