Day 7 Recap

I hope you have all recovered from our incredibly exciting race on Saturday.  
The harbor was glassy until about 12, when a hint of breeze took enough of a hold for us to send boats off the dock.  Our first and only race started at 12:45.  An outgoing tide and open Charles River locks combined with 3 knots (and the occasional 5 knot gust...) made for a slog of a race, taking nearly an hour to complete.  Patrick Clancy and Laura Clancy took first with a nicely executed and well timed gybe (watch the clip here), followed by Niko Kotsatos and Emily Zalewski in second and Matt Marston with Ben Geffken in third place.  Full results here.

A big thank-you to guest RC Steve Brett for bringing a last-minute vat of chili.
 
Carl will be holding a rules clinic from 9:30 - 11:00 this Saturday in the Seaport School at the base of the pier.  As always, please let us know if you won't be able to make it this weekend or if you need a crew.  
 
Stay healthy!
