Wed. August 17, 2016 - Races 12 (Summer Series)

See Race Results for finishes.

Wed. August 10, 2016 - Races 11 (Summer Series)

First race started as a W4, but was shortened to W2 when the downwind leg became a light air/no air free for all. Second race never got started.

Wed. August 3, 2016 - Races 9 & 10 (Summer Series)

In spite of the early predictions of a very light Southeast breeze, the wind cooperated and moved to almost Southerly at 8 to 10 knots, providing a beautiful summer evening for flat water & a clear bright sky racing event. With sunset at 8:07 pm, we set a course for mark R, starting race 1 with R4 course, and race 2 with R2. Both races completed with time to head home in the twilight. -Race committee Watercolour

Wed. July 27, 2016 - Races 7 & 8 (Summer Series)

Two races, wind out of SSW, first race about 8 knots increasing late in the race to about 10 knots.  First race 4 legs to Mark R.  Second race was set for 4 legs to R, but shortened to 2 legs due to fading light..

Wed. July 20, 2016 - Races 5 & 6 (Summer Series)

   RC went out one hour early to keep an eye on the light clocking oscillating breeze. RC set two marks, a W and R, so as to work for the best course. A great summer time Eight J-24's came to the starting line.
   Race 1 course was R-4 with 8 to 10 knots for the most part. Wind was clocking back and forth 20 to 30 degrees. All boats had a clear start and boats that went left side course made out best. The wind stayed up for most of race 1 and it was very competitive with Panic Attack winning the first race, Force G4 second and Trinity third.
   Before Race 2 was started the RC was trying for an R-6, but the breeze abated severely down to 5 to 8 knots and still oscillating left to right. Again all boats had a clear start and for the most part were a bit late to the line due to lighter breeze, current effect and traffic with a much tighter start from each competitor boat on boat. This time Trinity got a good start off the line and lead the way around all four legs in clear air. Force G4 again finished second with Jeepers third.

From RC Willie C./Trouble: Hope you guys had fun out there. It was a beautiful night.

Wed. June 1, 2016 - Races 5 & 6 (Spring Series)

Trinity won the first race in light wind. Panic Attack won the second race, which had a crazy shift before the first mark, giving a big advantage to those who were smart enough to stay right. The rest of the race became reaching legs to the finish.

Wed. May 25, 2016 - Races 3 & 4 (Spring Series)

Jeepers takes advantage of the best evening of the year with two wins. First course a W2, then a W4 when the wind held.

Wed. May 18, 2016 - Races 1 & 2 (Spring Series Begins)

First night of the 2016 season was a little cool, but with fairly steady wind under 10. RC set two courses to the south. First a W2, then a W4.
