The crew of Wild Thing was our RC tonight. With a light north breeze and a front approaching from the southwest, RC set a W-2 course with the windward mark at 20°, southeast of Cotton Point, and a start/finish line southwest of Hogback. In spite of the threat of rain, 12 boats turned out to race. A bit of a crowd at the boat end resulted in Cut Loose being shut out. Stinger started down at the pin end along with Uncle Ludwig, t and Vaporize, woot! started mid-line, and Spirit, Animal, Knot on Call and High Jinx (with Bob Rippel coming out of retirement) down at the boat end. Uncle Ludwig was first around the top mark, followed by the two sportboats, who quickly jibed to head east. The spinnakers did not last long — the rapidly approaching front spun the breeze around to the southwest, and turned the final leg into an upwind beat to the finish. Congratulations to Uncle Ludwig for breaking her string of deuces with a line honors finish and the win! Animal cross the line next for second, followed by Stinger in third. Check out the "Series" page on the website for current season standings — with four races in the bank we've earned our first drop.
