Fading winds on 2/10

Sundays in 2013 seem to be feast or famine: either we get too much wind to stay upright, or too little to move. Today was closer to the latter, but 4 skippers managed to make their way around the course in dying winds for 4 races. Catherine came away with the day's honors for the second time this season.

Wind: NNE 2-7 knots
