2013 Midwinters at Sarasota Day 4 - Race 4 and 5

A wonderful day on the water with lighter air and lots of sunshine. Got in 2 good races but the 3rd race did not materialize with not enough steady wind to pull it off. Congratulations to Championship Division winners Paul Abdullah and Alex Krumdieck and Challenger Division winners Harry Bernstein and crew. The prestigious Allan M. Douglas award for sportsmanship was awarded to Mark Taylor. Full results are now available here. Thanks to Sarasota Sailing Squadron for hosting and to Regatta Chair John Domagala and PRO Judy Hanlon for a wonderful week! Super regatta!

There's always tomorrow...

Well, the wind just doesn't want to quit. We waited patiently all day for a little lull from the 20-23 mph or so that was whistling by the club. Finally at about 2 Judy Hanlon decided it was dropping and we all trooped out. It was a lovely 11 knots or so as we arrived at the line and as the race committee set up. But it was a trick. After about 10 or 15 minutes the wind cranked up again, just as high as yesterday. Still, we were all game, but the committee boat anchor refused to hold. They had one line, two lines, three lines and then a fourth and still the boat slid downwind.
