It was a chamber of commerce weekend at Lake Pleasant (Feb 22-23), with nice breeze and temperatures pushing 80. After a delay waiting for the wind to shift Saturday, the breeze continued to fill, making for some great race conditions. Meanwhile, back on shore, Peter Lehrach lit the fire in his big smoker at 6:30 am to deliver tasty meat for hungry sailing carnivores.
This was the first outing for the TransLoch fleet and 8 boats showed up for the long run around Horse and Balance Rock islands and then back to the finish line. The race brought out some never-ever race people and some been-a-while race people, such as Craig Seaman, who hadn’t raced his J/27 since being transferred to Atlanta a decade ago.
You’ll find the results here. (The Delta correction gives all boats not flying a spinnaker a 20 second bump.)
