Third Place!

Dave sailed three great races in the Sunfish class on Sunday, and ended up coming in third overall! He said that it was some of the best racing he has ever had on a small boat.

A lot of it has to do with timing the start.

His main rival was junior sailor Joey Gale and they had some great one on one competition.
 Joey is taking after his father Jeff, who is almost always one of the top three winners (Joey even beat his father in one race). At the end of this series, it was Jeff first, Joey second, and Dave third.

During the last race Dave got caught on the windward mark's anchor line, fouling it, so he had to do a 360 circle to exonerate himself, before heading to the next mark. He caught up to everyone and still finished third. Congratulations Dave!

And no, I didn't manipulate the scores, even though I am the Sunfish score keeper. ;-)
