Nice weather with breeze from the North for Race 11. Crew of woot! on committee boat. Course was an I-5, with windward mark set into the breeze at 25 degrees, leeward mark Hogsback. Wind of course shifted to the West after race underway. The start was delayed a bit due to the pin mark working its way free and drifting downwind. Spirit grabbed it, used its on-board anchor and line, and reset the pin. The pin-end boat had a perfectly timed start - was crossing the line one second after the horn. Uncle Ludwig hit Vaporize at the start, Vaporize protested, and then took off north, keeping the fleet far behind for the entire race. Cut Loose and Brandow and Wild Thing were the next group around the windward mark. Wild Thing made some ground downwind, as the asymmetrics did their thing with the skewed course. While the committee boat was enjoying the race, we noticed the pin mark was once again drifting south... We fetched it, and it appears the line was cut by a propeller! Two anchors and line lost at sea! Damn! Viper kept growing the separation and finished first on corrected time - congrats! And second place to Brandow, and third to Cut Loose — nice to see some new boats taking the top spots.
