A beautiful warm evening with nice winds and close racing. Phoenix finished first just ahead of Imagination, then Grunion a few seconds ahead of Ferox, followed by Marnie Kai. Pleiades started but wasn’t able to finish.
A blustery day on the water
We tried out a new three-mark course … let’s just say it needs work … as two boats got hung up in the anchor lines.
Otherwise, it was a great day for Radio Controlled Sailboat racing. We had two new boats join the fleet and, as usual, the competition was fierce. One spectator suggested it was “like NASCAR out there”.
Thanks to the Westpoint Harbor staff for the use of the Whaler, the party barge, and a dock box to store our race marks.
Also thanks to the crowds who came by and tried their hand.
In the end, honors were shared with every racer having a first or second-place finish. Congrats to all.
Next race July 19th from 2:00. to 4:00 pm.
Join us to race (we have spare boats), or come and hang out in your dingy on the racecourse, and enjoy a couple of hours of Radio Controlled Sailboat racing.
We will be trying out a new course away from the dredging.
The races will be on the party barge and you are welcome to race with us, act as race officials, or just come and enjoy the fun.
Social Distancing rules apply.
