It was good to see Rob back at the cove following his adventures at racing events in Stowe, VT, and Chicago. It was a hot and humid start to the morning with a moderate but strengthening wind from a southerly direction. Rob set the course: south from the line around the orange mark taken to starboard, downwind to the green mark also taken to starboard, then repeat, orange mark, green mark, and back to the line. Six races were held and Connie Sampson came to our aid by starting the races and keeping score. Thank you very much, Connie.
Soling Fleet captain, Bill Raposa paid us a visit to see what the Thursday crowd gets up to. The “crowd” totaled eight members with boats and not a rescue in sight.
Paul won the first race and went on to win three more to be first overall today. The other two races were won by Rob and, with three second places, was second today.
Rich Field had four third places and that was good enough to clinch third place.
Also there to enjoy the fun were Bill David, Al Sampson, Albert Meyer, Pat Donovan and me.
The full results are on our website mhbmyc.org
