Race Results September 3, 2016

September 3rd was a beautiful day for sailing.  Sunny skies with pleasant temperatures.  The winds, however, were “a bit” fluky:  at times about 4 or

5 knots and at other times gusting up to about 12 knots.  Racing was never predictable!

There were nine Dragon Force RG-65 boats racing in the morning.  Six RG-65’s raced again in the afternoon, as there weren’t enough EC-12’s to compete then.

Vice Commodore, Jarl Wathne, won both sets of races, with Mike Cavanaugh coming in at a close second in each set.  Congratulations, guys!

Race results for the morning RG-65 races are below.

The end of the day brought with it some unplanned excitement.  When Jarl went to return the rescue boat, he saw that the chain to tie it up to a tree was gone!

Jack valiantly went to two stores to purchase a 14 ft. chain, which was used to successfully tie up the boat!  While waiting for Jack to return, Jarl made the most of that time, as you can see.
