The crew of Fuzzy Logic was our RC tonight. The decision to go ahead with the race was based on a lot of input to the RC for the evening, Christina and Willy Lund, and the WNC, Rodger Voss. Along with radar and future-cast data a consensus from those at Yankee and LGC was to not postpone or cancel but to race. We thank you for your patience. The Committee Boat set an ambitious W4 course and waited for the fleet of eight boats to assemble. In a shifty 5 knots out of the south we had an aggressive start, with Animal being called over early. They rounded the end and ducked behind the fleet and headed towards the west shore as the rest of the fleet lifted to the east. About 10 minutes later Sails Call starts and bails off to the west following Animal. Uncle Ludwig tacked to the right to consolidate even though it was a huge knock. Those that saw how well Animal and Sails Call and now Uncle Ludwig made out going west realized it was a big shift to the right and east was not the way to go. A big whoops for Vaporize, Spirit, T and woot! A lesson learned for the next upwind leg where Spirit went from last to fifth. I was okay with that. It turned out to be a beautiful night for a race. No rain, no storm, and the wind picked up to a steady 8 knots. The RC got Race 13 in and everyone back to their moorings before dark. You would think being over early at the start would put you in last place. Au contraire. Animal comes back and wins the race by a big margin. Congratulations Andrew and crew. Finishing second was Uncle Ludwig, and third was Knot on Call. Doug Brandow sailing Sails Call started 10 minutes late and comes in fourth. Nice comeback.
