To PRO Bob Astrove’s surprise the wind started off from the SW and he set up the course that way. But after the I20s were off and as the Lightnings were to start the wind shifted to the west and it was a beat/reach for them to the windward mark and the chutes could not be carried downwind.
The RC reset the course for races 2 and raised the T2 flag — two triangles. The wind picked and everyone had enough after three races.
Thank you, Bob, for stepping in to fill the empty PRO slot.
