Subject: Day 2 update


Hey all!  Light air day - yay!  There was a general recall on the first race as a bunch of boats were gathered at the port favoured end. They tried again and we had a great start - Hartleys just above us and Mike MacNamara in the pole position at the port end. It was "gusting" to 5kt and a bit patchy. Just enough wind to call it a race. One missed patch or bad tack and you lose a couple boats. We got infringed at the windward mark and love tapped a Danish Woodie. We dropped from the top five to about 15th but recovered to 6th by the last leeward. A couple bad choices had us finish in 9th on the final beat.


North Bay Weekend
greatly enjoyed by the few

(160708)  After an inauspicious beginning on Canada Day - light winds and buckets of rain -   winds picked up as we headed home from a shortened race at J5, giving us a marvellous planing reach through the rain. Three mostly sunny, warm days followed with winds ranging from medium to partially overpowering. Sue Pilling and Steph Romaniuk took W line honours in the Canada Day Race ahead of Uncle Al. The Long Distance Race - in solid hiking breezes was captured by Dave Hansman and Dave Richardson for the first time. Congratulations, guys.

Even Uncle Al's solo sail to DFL in the LDR
had its moments of glorious excitement.

Sue and Steph picked up a second weekend win as they edged out Dave and Dave by a mere one point in a 4-race series. And as if that was not enough, Sue teamed up with Meaghan of the NBYC to win the Poker Race, this time edging out Jan and Alannah d'Ailly. More here - photo albums only so far.
