Wed Night Racing Results

pre-start crowd at the boat end
The last Wednesday in August marked the end of the Wed night racing series, and racers gathered at Carl R’s to see how that last race affected the totals. When the dust settled the top five boats were: Joy, Crackerjack, Flying Circus, Vaporize, Wild Thing. These five boats were awarded trophies, and the top 16 boats received race committee shirts (since they will be sharing RC duties for the 16 planned races next year). Over the course of the season, there were 34 boats that competed in at least one race, and 20 boats completed 9 of 15 races. Cumulative results will be posted soon, and of course individual race results are available at

26 Boats on Wed Night!

running downwind from Diamond Island

A record number so far this summer. A nice breeze, a long course from near Hogback to Diamond Island twice around… unfortunately the wind shifted to give us a long starboard tack to the windward mark, then a long port jibe back. In spite of some unusually creative spinnaker work, Wild Thing led around the course, but not enough time to hold off a great effort by Spirit to take the win. We have some photos; and, of course, the results.
