Score Another Nice Lake Pleasant Weekend

Make it three race weekends in a row of nice temperatures and good wind at Lake Pleasant.

Saturday (11/3) was delightful, with good breeze most of the day; Sunday (11/4) started with white caps and petered out to glass, but only as the final race of the day ended. The battle in the Santana 20 fleet continues to be the contest to watch, with Santana 20 newcomer Joel Hurley taking it to perennial champ Martin Lorch. So far, Joel is coming out ahead, but the scores are close.

The PHRF Spin fleet was the host race committee.

Scores here.
