Bob Astrove came to the marina to sail but there was no RC. He and his crew stepped in and ran the races. Thank you, Bob!
The RC (Jim Antonovich, Leigh Boyle and Yates Dowell) ran three races in the cove today with winds typically about 12 out of the NNW with frequent higher gusts. The wind oscillated between W and N every few minutes all day. We got off the course early before the really hard gusts came in. A beautiful sunny day.
The Lightnings were at Leesylvania for their 33rd Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup Regatta
We got more practice in light air sailing which seems to require 1) patience and 2) and zen with the wind and current. The wind was loosely speaking from the northeast and after dying it usually, but not always, came back from the east. In the Lightning class, Bob Astrove showed off how good he is in these light conditions.
