Four, three, two, one, BOOOM! Victoria Blanckensee (filling in for Dee) has her unique countdown style. Troy “boomed” on 5 marks and was just one second off on the other 6 marks. Congratulations to team Dalusional winning the 1st place flag in State Heat 3 with 6 points lost. CYC’s Liquid Asset 2, Paul and Mairead Hodgson were second on 8 points and Purrfect, John and Lynne Cooper 3rd with 9 points.
A fleet of 48 boats braved the cold, windy and wet day. A big thank you goes to the check boats, especially some of the smaller, uncovered tinnies, bobbing around at anchor, recording times.
Etiquette…A reminder, when returning to the club after the event, please be courteous by going behind and not crossing at speed in front of other boats still on the course competing, causing unnecessary distraction and wake.
Double header coming up this Saturday AND Sunday…Nominations required…
The Seafarer’s Measure (Navi/Skips) event is on Saturday afternoon when the Navigators take over the wheel. It is not a requirement for the Skipper to take on the navigator role. Note: This is a nomination event.
Sunday morning at 10am is the re-run of the Bob Blanckensee trophy, postponed from earlier in the season due to bad weather. Please advise Bernie if you are NOT competing in the Sunday morning event
