Soling 1M Series #13

Yet another hot and humid morning with a brisk wind from the southwest and a tide almost fully out, turning at 11.15 persuaded 6 members to “Get those boats in the water”. I was late and joined for race 3, but Paul had to drop out of racing this morning because the servo arm on his new Soling loosened and the tool to fix it was at home.  Judy David once more did a fine job of keeping score and starting the races. Thanks, Judy.

Bill Raposa set the course, starboard around the SW marks, downwind to the far red striped mark taken to port then a long run to the SW marks rounded to port, and downwind back to the line.

We held 7 races today but had only two winners, Bill David won 5 and Bill Raposa won 2. Bill David was second in the two races that Bill R won Bill R had two seconds and two thirds. 

Bill David was today’s champion with Bill Raposa runner-up. Third overall was Pat followed by Kim, just 1 point behind…………..  I was also there!

The full results, as always, are on our website

At the moment, the forecast for Thursday, August 11th when DF95s race again shows a possibility of showers and a very light breeze. This is New England, however, and we know how quickly things can change. The tide will be going out with a low at 1.15 pm. Watch out for emails and alerts on

The next chance for the Solings will be Tuesday, August 16thwhen the tide will be high at 12.19.

Bring out your Solings!

Have a wonderful weekend,
