The End of the Season



Though the forecast was for increasing clouds and cool weather it turned out to be a beautiful fall day.  A great sail to wind up the season.  The wind played tricks on us again as it died just after the race started and picked up again 200 yards from the finish line.  The course had been shortened due to the light wind.  We decided to pull a trick on it and just sailed on, completing the original course to RGN and Ohio Ledge, up north into the bay.
