Soling Series #7

Soling 1 Meters at the cove today. Six skippers arrived to sail in gorgeous conditions in an ebbing tide with winds SW at about 5-7 kts. Bill Raposa, as fleet captain, set the usual course of upwind to the red buoy taken by port rounding, past the green offset mark, downwind to the leeward red mark, taken to port and then back to the start/finish line. First 5 races were once around, and the final two were twice around.
Bill David was “dialed in” with his boat and his sailing skills. He won all races except one. His throw out race was a second place. The other 5 skippers were clearly outmatched today; but, the skippers trailed Bill in this order………Paul, Kim, Dan, Bill R, and Pat. See the race scoring below.
