Off To A Great Start

Boxing Day signals the start of the Hope Town Sailing Club's race season. This year we had to postpone it a day, but it was well worth the wait. The conditions were perfect with sunny skies and 10-12 knot NW winds. This annual race usually only draws a few boats, and this was no exception. However, even though there were only six boats, the skippers and crew made up for it with their enthusiasm.

 No one was timid at the start line, that's for sure. 

New Horizon was the race committee boat, so we had great seats to watch the action, including the Abaco Rage sailing by with 16 people on board (always thrilling to watch!).

 This was a well run race and a perfect start to the season!
