Good wind tonight, should be a great evening of sailing (if we can avoid the storms). Hopefully will get some of the Jr. Sailors to come out with us, in which case I expect we’ll have traditional starts (rather than rabbits).
Had a great weekend sailing Lightnings in Bay City at the MI Districts. Saturday’s winds were blowing 15-20 mph, and the waves were 2-3 ft. It’s the cleanest our boat as ever been, as we were constantly taking waves over the deck. (My foul weather gear was continually put to the test.) The legs were set at close to a mile, and running downwind we surfed from mark to mark. I didn’t think to time it, but those legs could not have taken more than 3-4 minutes. Mike Welch will post the results, but it sounded like PYC members Mark Allen and Jim Allen took 1st and 2nd.
See you tonight.
