We had a beautiful, breezy day on Sunday with sunny skies and about 10 knots coming right down the Estuary.
The Race Committee used courses 8, 8, 7, 5 and 5 so that all boats had a two lap course, and everyone would finish at roughly the same time. In practice, boats finished in 60 to 90 minutes.
Twenty-five of our 31 entrants came out to race, with all eight of the class A boats racing. Being first in an eight boat class is never easy, but Good and Plenty won with a corrected time 93 seconds ahead of their nearest competitor, Wile E Coyote. In class B we had five of the six entries come out, with Loose Cannon in first place. In class C we had four of the five entries start, with Carina in first place. In class D, we had four of the eight entered boats start, and Puff Mommy took first place. In class E, all four of the four registered boats competed, with Anemone winning. Full results are on Jibeset.
As usual, the race was followed by socializing and prizes at the Boathouse.
Of course a race does not just happen, and we’d like to thank all the volunteers. Especially the new markset crew. They arrived at 10 AM to put the buoys in place, and then spent the day practicing with our new “big” marks, before picking everything up and putting the boat away. To volunteer, please reach out to Fernando at: email@example.com
Our next race is Sunday, December 11.
