It was an excellent sailing day and Dave came in 2nd over the finish line in the first race, 5th in the second race (slow start), and 3rd in the third race. Competition was fierce at the windward mark, especially between Heinz and Dave. After the handicaps were tallied, he placed 4th overall, out of seven boats. That really is good because Dandy is all original and most of the other boats are all modified with higher masts or longer keels and rudders to help them go faster.
Even Winer Malone, builder of the dinghies, was at the awards presentation for the Reingold Trophy (Will sailing Mac & Cheese won and Janet Reingold presented him the trophy with Winer sitting next to them).
What a memorable race day!
