Sail Fleet Race – Aug 17, 2019

(8.29 nm.)

Saturday August 17, 2019 was a fine day for sailing. Winds were light from the west at 8-10-12 knots. These light winds favored the lighter boats. Nine boats were circling the starting line for the noon start of our monthly pursuit race. The noon start included Pie in the Sky and Bibbity Bobbity Boat. The 12:03 starters were Atsa II and Imagine. The final group start at 12:06 had five boats: Astra, Consigliare, Bon Temps, Marilee and Rai. Rai is a fairly new boat. If anyone knows the owners, type and size of the boat and how to contact them please let me know.

Welcome Rai!

The starting line was crowded for the third start and Marilee almost collided with Astra so we are thinking about adding another starting group. Going from three starting groups to four. With the light winds the smaller boats stayed ahead of everyone until about the third leg and then the larger boats began to compete for leader. Finish times were as follows;

Consigliare 13:34:08,

Astra 14:00:30,

Marilee 14:01:11 Rai 14:08:12,

Bon Temps 14:08:57,

Atsa II 14:18:30,

BBBoat 14:25:32, Imagine 14:34:021,

Pie in the Sky 14:52:00.
