Write-up from last weeks sailing:
Yesterday we had nine boats participate in shifty, up and down conditions. Sailing were Griffin, Mark B., Eric Ro., Mike R., Tim, Forest, Joe, Greg, Adam, Andrew. On the chase boat we had Diana, Porter and Brig, who ran three challenging races, two two-lappers and one one-lapper.
The wind was a challenge as it came out of the southeast with big direction changes, and some decent gusts. It was quiet when we arrived, but soon built. Several new folks played it safe and stayed on shore or went on the RC boat. Not everyone from our club did, alas. A V15, apparently hired by Exxon to search for oil under the lake, kept sinking its mast in the sludge that is the lake bottom. No oil was found, but it was confirmed the bottom of the lake mud is stinky! All worked out okay in the end.
We had a couple of capsizes in our fleet, but everyone sailed well. The near miss capsize was executed to perfection by Eric Roman, who AGAIN, won the contest for the best save after hitting a massive log, as shall be explained.
