A light wind start for our Wed night series, with several boats showing off their spring finery: a new jib on woot!, a new paint job on Cut Loose, and a new skipper for Knot on Call! Witch Way was our RC tonight, and set a W5 course with the starting line near Hogback and a windward mark set at 327° for the northwest breeze. Pre-start indications of a right shift meant most opted for the boat end of the line, with Knot on Call and Wild Thing starting furthest to leeward. The breeze settled after the start for a square course. Uncle Ludwig worked the right side in the first beat, reaching the windward mark first with a bear-away set down the west side of the course, followed by Wild Thing, who jibe-set and headed east. Knot on Call and woot! rounded next, with woot! also making the move to the east. Wild Thing passed Uncle Ludwig on the first downwind, then extended on a long port tack north all the way to the starboard layline. With the breeze dying as boats made their way downwind on the fourth leg, RC signaled a shortened course and finished boats at the leeward mark. Congratulations to Wild Thing for line honors and the win, with Uncle Ludwig and Knot on Call finishing second and third — only eight seconds separating the first three boats on corrected time!
