Four boats braved the steep waves of  the  inlet  to race the intended  two laps course : Sea buoy to NC weather buoy and back. Wind well established from the East at 15  gusting to 20 kn. Swell was between 3 to 4 ft with the occasional  5ft. For the first time of the season TeeSou changed the genoa for the 100% blade with Likety split  following shortly after.  No change on the cruising boats as they were ready for condition favoring their size. Rough ride indeed to reach the first  mark ( 1 hour for 3 miles for the first boat) as the gusts went one notch  higher to 25kn .   It was decided to shorten the race to one lap .  Bohemian Blue retire from the race due to steering problem but was able to return home safely.
