Three – John Van Voorhis, Piercarlo Brunino, and Lindsay Bach — sailed on the Potomac.
Three – Tim O’Brien, Lisa-Marie Lane, and Jeff Witten – sailed on the Bay in the Frigid Digit.
I see new first names with familiar last names. I expect the younger generation took over. I see only 4 completed races on the Bay. Was it too windy?
From Will Phillipe, PRO on the River:
It was a beautiful day to sail today with sunny skies mid 70s and wind to sail in. As PRO I was certainly challenged today with our NNW winds moving to WNW. I made use of the Postpone before Race 1 because we needed a few extra minutes to get setup (remember as PRO the postpone is your friend). The forecast of NW winds with a later shift to WNW came earlier than I expected so race 1 the windward mark was off. We moved it closer to Gravelly Point to be more NW but it continued to move WNW and the gusts putting it closer to West. I was torn about trying to adjust the course and to get races off but with it shifting back and forth I opted to leave and keep running races. —
