AUGUST 31st

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.

May 4th

Race 1 canceled in a dying NW wind before a rotation to the South at 9 kn in Race 2. Congratulation to TeeSou and Run A Way in their respective classes.
Next outing is the boats parade, where boats round a mark anchored of Boulineau beach, Cherry Grove ( 12 miles round trip). Staggered start with the slower boat first. A lot of fun, catching the boat in front and leaving behind  boat starting after you. Grand prize for the biggest fish caught, bragging right for the first one to finish and many moreEmoji
See you on the water…
