NOTES:

       

8/1 - Oops, I just posted the results.  I had downloaded the results but forgot ot link them.

7/30 1800 - The awards are over, people fed themselves and there was lots of gab about the race.  Another season is over.

7/30 0200 - The first boat to finish was a tri, Skateaway by Keith and Alice Burrage Friday night at 2330.  The first monohull to finish was Cutlass: 11th Hour Racing by Nick Halmos and Hugh Piggin on Saturday at 0033.  The fog came in around 0100 and the wind picked up to about 15-20kts.  Since then the fog has disappeared and the winds shifted out of the West about 10kts.

7 /29 - The weather was cloudy but a decent wind around 10-15kts starting out from the South then going to Southwest by the time the last class started.  The start sequence went off without problems.  38 out of 39 boats started; Windsong in Class 6 did not start.
