RC: Spirit. The RC set a W-5 course with a windward mark off the west shore at 250 degrees and a starting area north of Hogback Reef. Each of the five legs took about 10 minites. John Jacobs and Sandy Powell set a perfect course and square line, Susan Jacobs had a quick trigger-finger on the horn, and Rodger called out the time and Diana Voss was "on It" to record all boats that checked in and finished the race. A gusty west wind of 8 to 12 knots blessed the fleet of 11 boats: What a terrific night on Lake George for the mixed group of J boats of all sizes from all around the lake. It was a full line at the start, with Uncle Ludwig just dipping her nose below the line at one second to avoid the Individual Recall. The “All Clear” was hailed and the race was off. A couple of close calls after the start but those involved exonerated themselves in the true Corinthian Spirit of WNR. As the favored starboard tack progressed the west wind headed a bit from the shore and got the fleet moving around the windward mark and for the downwind legs. Stinger led the way four of the five legs. Most improved tonight, with full crew and girlfriend by his side, Russell Merchant finished in fourth on corrected time. We all met at the Adirondack Brewery for food and drinks. Owners John and Cindy Carr were the perfect hosts. We talked about his nail-biting finish inching out the last place boat. He is having a blast with his new boat. They had the outside terrace set for our social gathering. Thanks for your hospitality.
