Day 2, Sunday, October 5th:
The weather was a little more like what one might expect for a series named the “Frostbite Series”, on October 5th. The morning low was 4°C, but by race time it was a comfortable 12°C, with a gusty wind out of the SSW at about 15 knots, with gusts to 20. The bosuns and brave RC volunteers started on time, and it wasn’t long before most of the crews on the 36 participating boats were working up a good sweat. The first boats finished the W Course in just over 30 minutes.
There was a short delay while the RC reset the course, following a 30° shift that hit just as the PHRF fleet was starting the first race. The wind was down a little for the second race, but was still generally 10-15+ knots, and most boats were back at the dock by 4:00 p.m., or shortly thereafter, celebrating another great day of sailing.
Mostly, it was keelboats, that is PHRF and JAM fleet. Us little guys were Cats and other fast boats: which included a Capricorn F18, NACRA F18, Classic Tornado, Unicorn, WETA, two brave Lasers, our SX18 and an New International 14. Wonderful Club racing..... one more weekend, and we're done for the season. Note to self, next time, wear scuba booties....
