Summer is winding down and we are coming into some beautiful sailing weather. Last Saturday was glorious on Sarasota Bay. Six Scots met out by the goal posts and with Sidewalk Express serving as the rabbit we set of for a race out to mark 13 and back. Sidewalk Express fended off all comers followed closely by American Dream and Eight Ball. Within moments of finishing the race, the conditions changed from glorious to very interesting. A blast of breeze came through with some clouds that had us wondering if the breeze would build past our comfort zone. Prudence prevailed throughout the fleet as most boats shortened sail, some with jib down, some with main down, some with all sails down. Everyone handled the conditions beautifully and we all sailed in to enjoy the Octoberfest festivities at the squadron.
It was great to see Sidewalk Express, American Dream, Eight Ball, Mojito, Serenity & Lucky Dog enjoying a fun day. Looking forward to seeing the rest of you guys soon!!!
Next race date for us is Oct 12 START TIME IS BACK TO 1:30 (leave the dock @ 1:00). Good luck to our road warriors as they head to Miami this weekend for Florida District Series race #1.
