Vaporize was the RC for this pre 4th of July race on Wednesday night. Originally the start line was just east of the LGC with a windward mark set at 17° about a mile away near the southern tip of Long Island. When I got back to the start area, the wind shifted almost 180°, so I decided to used the pin originally set as the start to now be the windward mark and had everyone start at North Canoe gvt mark, using a W4 course. There were 11 boats on the start line with winds about 8 knots or better from due North. At the first mark, at 16:00 were Stinger, Wild Thing, Woot, followed by Uncle Ludwig. On the downwind run to the second mark at 28:30 was Wild Thing, Stinger Woot and Uncle Ludwig. With the winds holding steady there were some changes at the third mark with Wild Thing, Stinger, Spirit (helmed by John Jacobs) and Woot leading the rest of the fleet. At the finish Wild Thing held line honors, leading the whole race, but Stinger and crew were first on corrected time.
