It was a very muggy morning at the cove but full of fun. Paul set the course with a vaguely east-west starting line. We used our normal southwest wind clockwise route. South to the red stripe and orange marks, both taken to starboard, then downwind to the northerly red stripe mark also taken to starboard and back to the line. We had eight races, the last one being twice around.
It was great to see the return of Dick Mahoney who came down to the cove to try a couple of races. We also welcomed David, a new resident of the Village who raced Jim Kelly’s boat for three or four races. Connie Sampson and a friend came along to cheer on boat 44.
I kept score and started the ten boats racing today.
Half the races were won by Paul who, with one second and one third did enough to win overall today. Second today with one win but 4 second places and 2 third places was Nick Bailey just 2 points behind Paul.
Other race winners today were Henry DiPietro and Bill David. Henry was third overall today and Bill was fifth. Splitting them was Rich Field. These three sailors were just one point apart.
Also joining in the fun were Kim, Jim, Albert, Al, Pat, and Dick. Well done everyone. Smiles all around.
