West Bay Yacht Club Summer Series  - Withdraw

Alas, some things are more important than sailing.  Thunder has had to withdraw from the WBYC summer series.

 

 

6/13/07  EGYC Summer Series #3

Race postponed due to high winds.  I guess last week's drama is making the race committee more cautious.

 

6/20/07  EGYC Summer Series #4 

crew: Charley, Roberto, Jeff, Greg, Art, Eric, Maureen, Bob, Gary 

 A good stiff wind most of the night.  A little crew rotation.

6/27/07  EGYC Summer Series #5 

crew: Charley, Jeff, Greg, Art, Eric, Maureen, Roberto, Gary 

 Stiff wind.  We still got beat by Vixen, even though they didn't fly their chute.  Hmmm.  We did dork a few things up, but still there were two downwind legs.  Hmmm.

Party of 4 did a spectacular broach at the first leeward mark and were laid over with the mast in the water for what must have been a couple minutes until they could release the spinnaker.  Quite a show.

No camera, no pictures.
