2012 Flying Scot NAC - on our way home

29-Jun-2012

We left this morning from Lake Carlyle where it was 92° at 8am and we knew we were extremely grateful that the RC got us off the water yesterday.  We watched the temperature go up to 109° at one point and then we saw the weather coming.  The temperature dropped 30°, the winds were reported as high as 80 knots and the camper was being blown around a bit along with the trailer.  We took shelter at a comfort food stop where we gorged on shakes and cheese fries!  Glad we were not anywhere near a lake at that time.

Wow!  Another gorgeous day in the 90's but with good wind.  We raced 3 today so we can try to finish early since it will be 100°+ the rest of the week.  We had 10-14 the first 2 races, then 8-10 after lunch for the 3rd race.   Rod Stieffel and Randy Santa Cruz are leading the Championship after taking 2 bullets out of 3 races so far.  Frank and Marianne Gerry did the same in the Challenger Division and are leading that series.
