Sunday, Sept 5 2021

Another cool and variable day, but winds settled down from the strong morning gusts, so we set a course and completed four races in a mix of light to brisk winds.

Saturday, Sept 4 2021

Strong, gusty winds, cool temperatures and threatening clouds caused some hesitation about going out to race, but enough people were keen to race that we set up a course, including a gybe mark, and seven boats set out to race. The weather rolled through with strong gusts and rain, so after successfully completing one race, we quit while we were ahead.

Cold shower included at no extra cost…

There was some hesitation to go racing Sunday, because the wind was quite strong from the Northwest, the temperature was cool, and the sun was obscured by thick clouds, but a quick poll determined that racers wanted to sail, so the race committee set up a “sausage course”, and five boats headed out.

It was a bracing wind, and about mid-race, a rain shower rolled over us. All boats finished the race, but we were soaked, so no enthusiasm for a second race.

Patti wins second race

Saturday the mood started out downbeat because there was no wind, but when some ripples showed on the lake, the race committee was dispatched to set up a course, and the light wind from the south held up just long enough for all boats to finish a second race, but there was hardly any pressure to push the last boat over the finish line.

Nice breezes from the south; variable pressure, but nothing too strong. The sun came out half-way through, which was totally delightful

Saturday, August 7th

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.
