Dave and Jim went Sunfish sailing around the harbor yesterday. Both guys did really well with the challenge of maneuvering around all the moored boats. It was such a pretty day, and made even better with the colorful Sunfish sails.
It was also a perfect day to practice for the races that we have coming up on Sunday. I'll be on the race committee boat that day, and they will need all the help they can get. For the first time in a couple of years, all the conditions will be right for Sunfish, Abaco Dinghies, and Junior Sailors in Optimists Prams, out on the race course at the same time. Each division will have a separate start, but a different version of the triangular course. This makes for close finishes, and the race committee has to be on high alert keeping track of it all.
Stay tuned for exciting post-race reports and pictures!
