The Albacore had their North American Championships Saturday – Monday and PRSA raced on the same course on Sunday. Nelson Pemberton ran the races from the bridge of a large cabin cruiser. The wind was from the NE, so Nelson set up the start line fairly near the airport and the windward mark was almost in the Anacostia.
The finish line was an obstruction that could not be sailed through which created a strategic problem of which way to go around it. And occasionally someone simply forgot about it and was disqualified.
It was cloudy with a nice breeze.
(October 10th, races 47 to 50 of the Spring and Fall series.)
