RC: Judy. The crew of Judy persevered, challenged by the persistant shift of 180 degrees from west to east, as the passing line of storm cells made it difficult to set a starting line let alone a course. They were patient and set a short I-3 course based on the light-air forecast with a windward mark set 100 yards north of the starting area and the North Canoe buoy as the leeward mark. The fleet of 13 boats started in another shift to the west with Spirit tacking on the shift and going right while most of the fleet took the knock to the west. When the wind clocked back Spirit tacked on the layline and rounded first with Stinger close behind. Downwind saw a couple of shifts to no wind at all but Spirit held on to the lead contested by Stinger in the zone of the leeward mark. Stinger banged the east corner as only he does and is famous for. I thought he was going to drop an anchor at Hogback Reef to fish he went so far, but finally tacked for the long knock back to the finish riding a new breeze from the north, and crossed the line for the win. Uncle Ludwig hugged the west shore and leap-frogged the entire fleet and came in second, leaving Spirit to fight off the challenge from T and Jaded. It was great to see a few more boats out on our fun Wednesday nights. After a beautiful sail back to shore in failing winds many of us went to the Diamond Point Grill to enjoy each others' company.
