The crew of Sails Call was our RC tonight, setting a W6 course in a 5-knot south breeze with North Canoe as the windward mark. Twelve boats turned out on this beautiful summer evening — and most of them wanted to start down at the pin end of the line. Throughout the race, pressure seemed better on the east side of the course, and boats that worked that side of the course came out ahead. Wild Thing was first to the windward mark (which included rounding a stubborn fishing boat drifting near North Canoe), and led the long starboard tack run down the course. Animal, Vaporize. Uncle Ludwig, Knot on Call and Stinger rounded next in close succession. The wind started to drop at the end of the first downwind run, and RC signaled a shortened course as Wild Thing rounded first, followed by Animal and Vaporize overlapped at the mark, with Knot on Call, Uncle Ludwig and Stinger in the next group. The wind died almost completely for the first half of the second beat. Thankfully the breeze began to fill again from the southeast, and boats headed towards Long Island to reach the pressure. At the windward mark the RC again signaled a shortened course and indicated that a finish line would be set about halfway down the run. With the breeze filling in, boats split on the run, where again the east side seemed to pay off. Congratulations to Wild Thing for line honors and the overall win. Vaporize finished next, though on corrected time Knot on Call took second and Uncle Ludwig was third. After the race we christened a new location, the TR Lounge at the Holiday Inn in Lake George Village.
