Sunset Series 5

Wednesday Night Racing.

15 boat fleet and real tight racing. On the ground a sailor found a price tag, it read LP plus the bar code. That usually means the first 2 races would be won by LP. Timur Rudnitskiy and Dick White were out for the first time of the year, Dick warmed up and showed his speed in race 3. Dick quote, “you need to sail to get good at sailing”. Ilia fresh off of his Wabamun success were he won a race was in the mix with a 1,2 to go with his 11 and 8. Ben had a 2, 3, 3 for 3rd on the night.

T.O. Randy started strong with a 3,2 and was the most over in race 4, but went back……….AND NEXT TIME WE WILL HAVE THE GENERAL RECALL FLAG IN THE BOAT. although I was told my start was also ‘too good”. 2 Europe’s, Jaime and Kristine were in the mix and finished with equal total points, Kristine winning the tie breaker, the loud hard sail can startle you when they jibe right beside you. When Pat Byrns drops his hiking pants off, plan to hike, discourage him from picking them up. Lewis fresh off his Apprentice win at the Western Masters was a little late from his celebrity golf tourney. Still got out for the last 3. Tanys’s was happy with a dry boat, Sydney would be happy with a sail that was only 10 years old vs 15.

Mountain Madness is this weekend, lets do this again on the weekend.

Blackstrap Sailing Club – Wednesday Night Racing

The world has been taken over by females sailing full rigs.

Good to see the little sails go away when it gets light and then have more fast boats in the mix. Sydney Byrns won 2 races, Kristine Coons won 2 races, Ilia won the other. Quebec’s Canada Games rep Louis Pierre is showing his old form with strong scores. District 3 secretary and water Rat member Randy had good scores including a 2 in race 5.

Randy is from Toronto and commutes, please show a nice hospitable prairie welcome, not everyone from there ……………. can play hockey.

Race Committee Lewis Otereulo was heard asking many questions of RC Patty Coons, while in the same boat. How much time between the Warning and start? ……… How much time between the Prep and pre down? ……… How much time? ……….. How many races has Lewis won ….. and he still does not know this?

Nic had a great start in race 7. Leading the race with the little sail.

Kristine port tacked the fleet in race 5 for the easy win.

Matt is still yawning from the lack of sleep from the night shift.

Good to see Jordon out for the first race of the year.

Wet spring, good for the mosquito population. To see mosquitoes in the middle of the lake on the start line, that is a new one for me. The last race is actually a race to the team container for BUG SPRAY ……………..

Your scores as follows.

1. Sydney 1 3 2 1 3 10 pts
2. Coach 2 5 3 4 2 16 pts
3. Ilia 3 1 4 3 6 17 pts
