Thanks Iko Iko for doing race committee. Race number six was a beautiful day with light winds. RC set the windward mark/orange ball roughly a 1/2 mile down the lake at 175 degrees between Long Island and Canoe Island. The starting line was out in front of the club and the wind was very light at race time. Unfortunately, Knot on Call got caught on the windward side of the starting line and struggled to get back before the gun. Stinger and Windfall were down at the pin, while all the other boats were at the committee boat.

Everyone headed left, and eventually at the top mark it was Stinger (leading) and Windfall in 2nd place. On the downwind leg, the wind stayed light as Stinger and Windfall rounded the mark in the same order. At the windward mark Stinger still lead. The RC shortened the course to finish downwind changing the course to W-4. On the downwind leg, Windfall passed Stinger to get line honors. On corrected time, Stinger was the winner. Special thanks to the official sponsor of Lake George Wednesday night racing Yankee Marine for lending us the committee boat for last night's race. Thank you very much Andrew Brodie.
