Race Report 12 November 2016

Fall Series: 12 November 2016.

Venue = Nanaimo Yacht Club.

Marsha “in charge” and ruling with an iron fist.

 

Eleven sailors began the day at 11:00. The wind was from the south-east and was light with A sails all around. The course was set pretty much north to south with the start line about mid-course, two upwind marks and one downwind mark. At about the 5th race the wind pickup up and some switched to B sails, then for the rest of the afternoon as the wind moved to the west and then to the north-west and then back east,  A and B sails were exchanged many times by many participants. Four of the 11 sailors were from Victoria (Thanks folks!!) including Betty or newest member (Welcome Betty!!). Angie started the day by whipping us all and that’s pretty much the way it went all day with Angie placing  THIRD behind John, a man of mystery who appeared for the first time this year, grabbed the pencil to figure the scores and somehow placed SECOND, behind Tim who sailed way with top honours FIRST. The post-race meeting at Millers was excellent as always and we all made our way home ready to fight again on November 26th Venue TBA.
