Fantastic turn-out, lively winds. Thanks to David Baker for moving the marks with his motorboat to adjust for a significant wind shift. We had 12 boats on the start line, including Josh in an Optimist. He started with us, and sailed a shorter course, so unfortunately he can’t be scored with the fleet, but maybe next time there will be a second Optimist sailing.
We were not able to race keelboats on Saturday due to the lack of wind, but on Sunday a warm, fluky wind firmed up as nine boats set out to race, producing a mix of strong gusts and quiet moments, all generally from the Northwest, but varying quite a bit in typical Falcon fashion.
As of Saturday, we can hold club races with up to 25 people, so we will start our racing season with the keelboat race on Saturday, which other boats can join as well, and the first dinghy race of the club series on Sunday. Please be ready to sail by 1 pm both days.
