Saturday July 27th
Yesterday we had four millies race five races on a beautiful warm day. The 4-6 knot breeze was
relatively steady until the last race where the northerly came in. Those racing were Bob Scholl -12,
Paul Turner -52, Chris Davis -117 and Pax Davis -214. It was a good day to have a beer at the club afterwards.
Saturday August 17.
Once again a nice turnout of 7 Millies on a very nice day. The first two races were light with big shifts in the wind.The direction was across the estuary with with mostly a south wind. The course was twice around, using the starting bouy as the turning mark. The fleet was spread apart. The third race was windward mark and then to the finish. Thebreeze had shifted more to the west, but not enough to have to tack to the weather mark. Almost a double reach.
The final race, the wind began to blow a little as only three millies finished. The results are attached.

What a great day. The breeze about 6 knots, smooth water, minimal shifts, enough to tack on and
5 millies. Those present were Liam 212, Bob 12, Bill 111, Chris 117 and Pax 214. Chris and Pax had to leave early after four races, but the remaining millies had a couple of more races.
It was really a great day of sailing.
The next day of off schedule racing will be November 9th
