Beautiful Fall Weather, Sunny 65 Degrees F.
Saturday: The Race comittee decided that more races were better and, with light wind, stuck with a one-time-around, W-L-W format for 5 races. It worked well.

Sailing started in SSE 5 mph breeze which went left throughout the day. The last race was in ESE breeze at around 3-4 mph.

A great dinner at the club was capped off with a toasty bonfire.

Sunday, 2 races were sailed: Race 6, once-around, started with NE 5 mph winds but diminishing breeze. No wind by the middle of the leeward leg but it gradually filled into SSE 3 mph to finally finish the race. Race 7, with SE breeze gradually increasing from 4 mph, was the series two-times-around race. A picture perfect start led to a 5 boat overlap a the 1st leeward mark. Very Cool!

Rolland Vortriede and Neil Cooper (DR) won, Mike Phinney and Brad Balmert (CLE) took 2nd and Mike Szymansky and Jason Kleidohoukis (DR) were 3rd.
