RC: T. Eleven boats came out to the general area of the race, some boats in irons pointing north, some others pointing south. Nevertheless, the Race Committee well-staffed by T laid out a short W-6 course at 220°, and at 6:30 pm sharp on the starting gun, a breeze filled in from around 240°. Three boats were over early and recalled. Starboard tack was favored and the wind clocked further west around the windward mark. Stinger was first to round that mark at 6:40 pm, followed closely by Cut Loose. Stinger set its kite directly back to the pin end as the leeward mark while Cut Loose somehow found a shortcut closer to shore and rounded the leeward mark first at 6:58 pm, closely followed by Stinger. Judy arrived there third at 7:01 pm. Jaded surprised everyone as fourth, and III arrived there as fifth. Spirit did well despite a late start and the crew redeemed their standings. No sight of the asymmetric as of yet, the short course seemed not in their favor. Similar sequence at the second windward rounding: Cut Loose rounds at 7:10 pm with Stinger closely behind. Second leeward mark same sequence: Cut Loose rounded at first at 7:20:40 pm, followed by Stinger at 7:21. Immediately after their rounding an interesting maneuver of four boats on starboard, Cut Loose and Stinger upwind and Judy and Jaded downwind. It was amazing to watch how they all escaped unscratched! The late summer sun set behind the mountain range but the wind kept going steady. On the final downwind leg to finish Stinger took the lead over Cut Loose. The race was appropriately celebrated at the Adirondack Brewery.
