Flying Scots Race in the Bunkie Regatta

Last Saturday afternoon proved to be a super day for sailing on Sarasota Bay. 6 Flying Scots participated in the Bunkie Regatta. We thank Herb for setting up 3 races for us. We had (2) windward leeward and (1) triangle course. Winds were about 8-12 from the west with changes in both velocity and direction to make things interesting. The mighty Leprechan used breakaway speed and brilliant tactics to take all 3 races. Sidewalk Express was consistent enough to claim 2nd for the day and joining them on the podium in third was Wind Up Toy. Teams Curtis, Eightball & Serenity all had their moments in the sun too. This being the Bunkie Regatta Capt. Ron decided to sail solo and took top FS honors for solo sailors. A keg of beer and some watermelon back at the squadron topped off a fun day of sailing. Next date on our calendar is June 29. (4:30 start)
