August 2016 Race Results

The racing is always good on Lake Baldwin. No crowds on the water. We sail far enough away to silence the barking dogs. The weather was cooperative this month, no rain and some challenging winds. One unexpected gust blew one boat over just as they crossed the finish line. Three JY15’s took to rigging on dry land and launched from the dock. Climbing aboard a small dingy, has to be done nimbly. No one fell in the water. Racing was close. More than once all three boats converged on a mark at the same time. Everyone got around with out fouling. Kurt and Penny took first place for the day. The 2016 season scores now have Kurt and Charlie sharing first place. Rick is just four points behind. With the hot sun beginning it’s retreat, we hope to see a few more faces in September.
