The competition was there and the conditions were far better than those in Rio as these skippers took tin after 7 races that whittled the fleet down from an impressive 9 entries to 6 that could endure the tasty conditions. There was good wind and flat water. An overcast sky that seemed tempted to cut loose in a torrent never did and kept the stinkpotters at bay while providing ample shade for the hardworking crew on the fine racing machines. Afterwards, several crew members were overheard mumbling about exertion and fun, two words not often bound in the same concept.
Friday August 12th is our Meeting for August – Bill Miller will be cooking fabulous Chicken
This will be our regular potluck type meal, so bring a dessert and /or a side to share.. Weather permitting our club should be a good place to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower.
