Jim Graham ran the races with Barney Harris running the mark boat. Natalie Rehberger, Mike Heinsdorf, and Eva Hogan assisted.
The Lightnings were finishing day 2 of the Doc Gilbert Memorial Potomac Cup.
The winds were from the NE with shots from the ENE. During the 3rd race, the winds died completely leaving the sailors helpless against the current pushing them up river. The wind finally came back in to allow them to finish.
