Thanks to Paul Sutton for standing in as race organiser and reporter...

Wind varied 10-27 Kts generally easterly.  Course: Langdon (S), Bolivar (S), finish.  Even port tack start with Pipedreamer and Just Enough to windward.  By end of breakwater, normal service resumed with Espresso leading, JJ second, JE third and Pipedreamer languishing in fourth.  JJ and Pipedreamer flew their kites to Langdon, but with doubtful efficacy and the order did not change.  Almost a beat to Bolivar and broad reach from there to finish.  JJ and JE both flew kites from Bolivar, JE overtaking Pipedreamer again......once they had rescued their spinnaker halyard.

The real fun started in the marina, but that would be telling tales out of school!
