Yesterday's final dinghy race of the season set a record for the amount of boats watching the 3 race series. There were all sorts of dinghies and skiffs, plus a 49 foot yacht!
The 12-14 knot breeze was a bit too much for the Abaco Dinghies to sail in, but there were 10 Sunfish and 4 Junior Sailors in Optimists Prams that participated. One family came all the way from Guana Cay. The father and one son were each out in Sunfish and the other son, who is going to the World's Competition in the Dominican Republic, was in an Opti. All three of them placed in the top 3 finishers. Very impressive!
Dave came in 5th place, but that's pretty good, considering all the hotshot racers that were ahead of him.
Best of all, everyone had such a good time. It was a great way to end the season.
