10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short
The most recent day race was great fun. The race began with a light air drift up the back side of Douglas to Pt. Hilda. At the half way point the wind filled but remained fickle. Lorax a trimaran, was first to turn followed by Shoeless with Haiku close behind. Loa’a Nalu found a few lucky tacks and was able to catch the leaders on the quick return to Marmion.But as most would predict, getting around Marmion to the finish line proved daunting and Shoreless, Loa’a Nalu and Lorax all scratched late in the evening. “10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short” Haiku, with a masterful display of light air sailing, drifted across the finish line minutes before the 9:00 PM curfew.
