8 Lightnings and 8 Albacores came out to play on a beautiful gusty day. The RC set up a nice long 3 lap Olympic course with the windward mark all the way up by Roaches Run. Because the wind was out of the NW with frequent shifts west, the “Triangle” portion of the course was not much of an angle. It was more like a very long offset. At the start, winds were in the 10-15 range with gusts to 25. This faded as the day progressed, and actually got quite light by the time everyone came in. Rick Welch won the day for the Lightnings, while Barney Harris took top honors for the Albacores. Special thanks for Special Olympians Frank Altrichter, Rod Sellers, and Isaac Sellers for help on RC. Scores after the break:
|2||7962||Nathan D. Marsh||3||3||2||2.667|
Yates Dowell (PRO), Ben Ackerman, Chris Bolton, Frank Altrichter, Rod Sellers, Isaac Sellers.
NW 10-15 with gust to 25 slowly fading throughout the day. Temps in the low 70’s. High Tide at 8:59am.
