It was one of the best racing weekends any of us could remember: good wind and comfortable temperatures nearly the entire time, perfect enough that each fleet scored a record number of races over the two days. Credit the wind and the multi-hull committee team that turned races quickly.
Rain forecast for Sunday morning instead struck overnight, leaving the sky clear at race time. The biggest surprise of the morning came when the race committee and Lake Captain David Newland arrived to find the Pleasant Harbor Marina launch dock floating 100 feet offshore—with the committee boats still tied to it. The RC were ferried to the dock and headed out while the PHM crew went to work to attach the dock back to the land.
After a couple light-air races Sunday morning, the wind came up again and with it the smiles of race teams that knocked off a half dozen races before stopping.
