Founder's Cup

Today was another race day and Sunrise had a new crew member...ME! With light winds, and sometimes no wind, it was a good time for me to go out and race.

John is my editor for the sailing club's website, so with our sun protective gear we were calling ourselves the web bandits.

We were over the start line early due to another boat being so close and we had no where to go, so we had to do 360 degree turn and start again.

The race was a challenge looking for zephers of wind and some of the boats fell into 'holes' of no wind. For some reason we were in the right place at the right time and sailed right on by them.

We ended up coming over the finish line second, but when the handicaps were tallied we WON! That makes 4 firsts out of  the 5 races held this season. As soon as the awards photos are available, I will post them. Meanwhile, many thanks to Will for all the race course images.
