Spring Series #3: Light and variable

It took a bit for the wind to fill in for Spring Series #3.  The RC postponed ashore on the advice of the folks out on the river running the I-20 Cherry Blossom Regatta since there was no wind between 1000 and 1130 or so.  A light southerly began to fill around 1130 and those boats who still wanted to sail — 4 Lightnings and 2 Bucs — made their way up to the course.  We were able to get off one W2 race and then a shortened second race in the light breeze.   With no wind on the river at all as the second, shortened, race concluded and with some storm clouds brewing to the west we contemplated towing boats back to the marina area.  The breeze filled in again though to help folks get home in time, and just ahead of the really gusty bands that came through later in the afternoon.  As they say, a day sailing on the water is still better than a day at work!
