There seemed to be some wind in the morning, enough to race plus a little more. There seemed to be a few canoes that were late out to the rally point and therefore the RC postponed the start. The fleet has certainly diminished, missing from this weekend were Persistence, Noddy, Mystery, Oliver's Gift, Silver Heel and The Spirit of Wyetown unfortunately. There was talk that Mystery would be back this weekend but that did not seem to happen, hopefully they will be back for the Labor Day series on the miles!

The course was set windward to leeward around 3 times, giving plenty of opportunity for anyone to come back from behind, also making for a fairly quick race only about an hour. The start was a tight one Jay Dee almost pushed up into the committee boat, and Patricia and Edmee S. got squeezed out and had to circle around making it to the line late.

Jay Dee got the gun!

The second race wasn't looking too promising, as the wind seemed to drop out and barely enough to start at race, but some dark clouds moving in seemed to bring some wind with them towards the start line. The Line was set close to the shore up past the TAYC which always makes for an interesting start. Everyone reaching back and forth across the line, Jay Dee decided to do a port tack start but unfortunately Billie P. Hall was on starboard headed down the line as the Jay Dee tried to sail ahead to avoid coming down and circling around, but was unable to make it and Billie P. Hall's bowsprit speared Jay Dee's outrigger sending Jay Dee's mainsheet tender in the water. Billie P. Hall's bowsprit snapped in half and was unable to continue, while only some slight damage was done to the outrigger on Jay Dee she dropped out due to the collision. From what I was able to see the race upwind was looking great but as the fleet came up the river approaching Peck's Point it seemed as many painted boats upon a painted river. Rounding the mark seemed to be everyone together but coming back upwind some went towards the left shore and some went towards the right shore picking up steam and heading towards the finish, although Island Lark seemed to stay towards the middle of the river chasing wind shifts and fell behind the fleet. The Edmee S. just lifted above the fleet and finished well ahead earning the first gun they've had since 1998! Congrats!!!

Edmee S. got the gun!

There seemed to be some wind for the day but dropped out and became a floater kind of day. Reaching the first mark seemed to take quite some time and the thought of coming all the way back to that mark was not a kind oneĀ… Jay Dee was able to move ahead of the fleet and round the first mark with the fleet some distance behind. Then it became a search for wind as everyone headed towards the Bellevue shore on the downwind, with everyone parked on the leeward rail trying to resist the urge to break out some pie pans and start paddling. It became apparent that the race would not end in the time allotted even with a 3 hour time limit so the course was shortened to once around and back up to the finish. Jay Dee was able to hold her lead as Island Blossom and Patricia came up, and finished 8 minutes ahead of the rest of the fleet giving her not a only a gun but a first as well! Island Blossom finished second with Patricia and Island Bird fighting for 3rd.

Jay Dee got the gun!
