There was a good showing at the Fall Fling. Fifteen sailors showed up to share food and stories. While the food was coming off the grill, the lake was lying still. Where were the nine knots of wind called for in the forecast? Grumbling spread throughout the group. Just as the boats were getting loaded on the dollies, the weather man made good on his promise as a strong breeze came in. Ten of the Fling attendees soon took to the water for the September race, while two others got rigged up to watch and do some fun sailing of their own. All six Hunter 140’s were on the water! Rain threatened from the east, but it stayed there while creating excellent racing conditions on Lake Baldwin.
There were no photo finishes at this race, but the overall points were remarkably close. In A Fleet, third and fourth place were determined by a tie breaker, with both boats scoring eight points each. This tie went to Matt and Dinielle because they had a first place finish while Rick and Gavin did not. First and second place were also determined by a tie breaker. Each boat scored seven points, just one point less than third and fourth! Kurt and Myk took first over Penny and Charlie as this tie breaker was determined by who had the best finish in the last of the three races.
