The 9th race of the 2024 season was a great afternoon for sailing.  With the winds from the south at 12 to 15 mph the RC set a W2 course with the start/finish line near the LGC and the windward mark being the Diamond Island government mark about 3 miles upwind.   Thanks goes to Graham Blackburn for helping out on the RC boat and it was great to be home after my 4 weeks off on vacation to San Antonio, Tx with family.  We saw 105 deg there while the rest of Ya'll had warm temps in the 90's. HaHa    At the start most of the boats, 13 in all took the pin end and using local knowledge, keep going east for the big shift that was to come off of Speaker Heck Island.  From the start line it appeared that Wild Thing led the fleet to the first mark.  Ben McAndrews helming Joia sailed a great race on a J/22 with their small jib beating the J/24's to the first mark and managed to stay ahead on the downwind sleigh ride to the finish.  At the finish line Wild Thing got line honors.  Joia took 1st place on CT with Stinger in 2nd, and Wind Machine for 3rd.  Knot on Call came in 4th for CT giving the J/22's a good showing.  Can you believe we are already past the mid point of the 2024 season!
