This year, expecting the conditions to worsen later in the day, Stan picked the
secondary course around Dyer Island, see the Notice of Race.
The race started with a NW breeze, leading to a downwind start.
All four boats opted to sail around Dyer Island first,
and all chose to go counter-clockwise.
The breeze held until around 1pm, when it got steadily lighter, and the fleet was almost becalmed between 2 and 3 o'clock, when a sea breeze came in. The race was unusual for the number of downwind legs.
At this point 2 boats retired, and the remainder, RI Red and Remora, both stayed close together around Poppy Bell, and to the finish. It was a hot day on the water.
We had a pleasant social "gam" Wind Hill before the race,
Many thanks to Stan and Martie Livingston for their kind hospitality.
