Wed Night Race 1.1 Report

June 5, 2024

by Martin aboard the Kay D

Beautiful wind out of the SE and warm with no rain. How perfect. Our fearless FCR had a course with three marks, choose the one you want to round. The Flying Fifteens took the short course with a bit of a reach, most of the fleet took the middle Horda Shoals, and Steller Jay did the long course. Gyle, Mia and Steve had Shingebiss on fire and rounded Horda in the lead. Ogopogo was not in the lead, obviously missing the calming influence of April, who was off-island buying sailing parts for other boats. Vern was having his first Flying Fifteen sail, sailing with Daria, a laser sailor who raced in the Adriatic waters of Italy. Greg and Holly had Sorcery X going well in advance of their upcoming ‘round Vancouver Island adventure (two months of cruising). The Slippery When Wet crew were also in fine form, having spent the afternoon retrieving an errant mainsail halyard.

The staggered race course had all the boats converging on the finish line, very exciting, and with no one really knowing who might actually be in the lead. Brilliant work, FCR! The short course Kay D grabbed line honours, having a last minute gust save her from being run down by Shingebiss. The after race party on the dock was a great start to our Wednesday Night racing series and what a beautiful night to go sailing. Well done all.

Thanks to Lisa Lipsett for the photos.
