Day 13 Recap

Day 13 of our frostbite series was a good one.  Even with some traffic delays, we ran six races, all course 4's, with the wind steadily building from 8-10 knots to 10-12 knots over the afternoon.  The SE breeze was predictably oscillating over about 45 degrees.  The right side of the course tended to be favored quite a bit, at least going upwind.  Downwind, we noticed that the boats that stuck by the channel picked up a few spots on the finishes.
 
Marty Gallagher and Cindy Olson took first place with an impressive 13 points: three bullets, a 2nd, a 3rd, and a fifth place.  Steve Clancy and Mark Deshong battled it out with Pat Clancy and John Moulthrop for second place, with Clancy/Deshong's 23 points trumping the 25 points earned by Pat and John.   Steve and Mark had one of the best starts that I've seen all season, setting up in the middle of the line and gently holding their position before heading down, easing sails, then heading up and trimming just as the last horn signaled.  Steve and Mark were hyper-aware of the line and the fleet around them - In the last ten seconds, Mark had eyes on the boats below and behind them, while Steve's head went back and forth between the pin and the RC boat checking his position.  We managed to grab a few shots in the last ten seconds of the sequence - check them out in the flickr page!
 
Thank you Carl for such a great overview of the protests, and thank you Fleet Captains Jen and Mark for the soup/chowder/rolls!
