|The wind died in intensity as the racing wore on, but it was still hiking weather until the end. Griffin scored three firsts with Mark and Brig taking one each.
Two capsizes were recorded on the evening in the heaviest air first race, with Brig taking a swim while doing a penalty turn, and John must have turned in a decent death roll based on the hooting I heard! Granted, I had 3 mm neoprene on, but it was not cold at all.
After racing, we retired to Shady’s for some delightful conversation (well, most of it was delightful!). Jim joined Eric, Alex, Adam, Brig, Forest, and Griffin for a few adult beverages and good food. When talk turned to Game of Thrones, Brig was banished to the kid’s table with Adam to geek out over the upcoming final season. TV watching is a sport, you know!!
What a wonderful evening for sailing and friendship. Dust your boat off and join us!!
