The last day of the fall series. Frank Gallagher and his team ran the races, getting off four in what I believe were light winds.
Below are the results for the day, the fall series, and the year long championship series.

Frank Gallagher and team ran the races and, I hear (I wasn’t there), got them off without delay. How was the wind?

- Your score is the average of your best qualifying races or all your races if you did not sail enough races to qualify.
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.
A beautiful fall day to sail. The wind started off with a lot of east in it which the Pro Bob Bear and his team set up for Race 1. By the time of Race 2, it had veered to the SSW and the RC readjusted the course. By the end of the day, we were getting big shots from the SW and the wind was up. Fun.
(October 24, Race 55 to 58 of the Spring and Fall Series)
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.
