A funky west wind, six short windward leeward legs and a season high of 19 boats meant lots of boat-handling, lots of position changes, and finally a good night for the J/22s… check out the results.
Three weeks in, here’s the latest Wed Night Racing summary from Rodger Voss:
“Current standings after three races with one throwout in effect: Flying Circus is in First Place with 4 points, a very impressive start to the season; JaKo is in Second Place with 6 points, the Most Improved so far from last year’s finish of 13th overall; Crackerjack is in Third Place with 8 points, always a contender with a First Place the first race; Wild Thing is in Fourth Place with 8 points, very consistent with two fourth places finishes; Vaporize is in Fifth Place with 9 points, determination certainly shows with a First Place in the second race. There is a lot of excitement on Wednesday Nights. These next couple of weeks I’m sure will start to show an increase in participation. COME ON OUT AND JOIN THE FUN.”

Wednesday Night racing begins on May 14, check out the Committee boat schedule for 2008 and get your boat ready!
Certainly the beautiful weather played a part as 26 boats turned out for a perfect evening’s racing. Well, perfect until the breeze slowly dropped on the downwind leg… although enough to keep the spinnakers full for these great shots by Ron Byrne. We also heard Ed Ostberg’s shutter firing at the weather mark, hope to have a link to share for those photos soon.
