The middle of the fleet was anybody game and there were lead
changes on ever leg. With three one lap races followed by
three two lap races. The sailors had to stay in the game.
The 720 rule was included by the RD. This caused the sailor
to think twice before they push an issue. Only one protest
came off the water. We have included 4 boat circle markers
so that the sailors could judge their positions as they
approached the marks. These marks were smaller floats that
were measured distance from the turning marks. Most of the
comments were that it seemed to be a greater distances from
the marks than they had expected.
The Coffee was provided by the local coffee shop. lunch was
provided by the Tomato Palace. We had a great dinner back
a the Tomato Palace following the first day of sailing.
The racing was over a 12:30 pm Sunday. The entire fleet
knew that they had been racing. Most were numb.
