A sunny, warm, and thoroughly delightful day of sailing was enjoyed by the (not yet) Frozen Few. Temperature was nearly  60 degrees! Breeze was about 8 knots out of the North East. Nine skippers came out to race. Eight returning skippers (Ray W., David W., Kyle, Fauss, Jeff, Jonathan C, Doug and Catherine) welcomed new skipper Bill S at the line.

In the six races, the leeward mark was set daringly close to the observation dock. Skippers remarked that they could see the shoe laces on the spectators. There was a selection of the "standard" courses: a triangle course, T;  a double Windward-Leeward course, W2; a G, sailing a triangle course then back up to the windward mark and then to a downwind finish; another Triangle, T: a single windward-leeward, W; and finally an O, combining a triangle with a windward-leeward to the finish.

In a gently increasing breeze, boats got good speed and sailed close together, with no mis-haps; just plenty of fun.  All the skippers finished all the races.

Ray W. took the day's top slot. Kyle and David tied next, with 18 points. The tie-breaking rules gave the second spot for the day to Kyle. And Doug and Catherine also tied for the day, with Doug edging ahead in the tie-breaking rules. Many thanks to Dave W. for feeding the fleet, and for Stuart on Race Committee with his sidekick Baci!
