Wind Hill 2010 Results

The Wind Hill race took place on August 29th.

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.
