Seven Millies showed up to race on a perfect day. Six races were completed, and there were several different winners. It was a competitive group, Pete Veasey 99, Liam O'Flaherty 212, Paul Turner 52, Chris Davis 117, Bill Fructerman 111, Bob Scholl 12, and Pax Davis 214.
As usual, the courses were all windward-leeward, but severe wind shifts from the northwest and the southwest added to the competition.
Two weeks prior, seven boats competed. The wind that day was a little lighter. After these last 13 months, it was great to get back to some competitive sailing.
Please take note, the dates of the Millimeter Nationals have been changed. The new date is September 4-5.

What a great day, perfect weather, nice breeze, shifts westerly to north-west and the excellent attendance of 9 Millimeters. The five races, taking about 25 minutes each. All races were windward-leeward, but good downwind legs to produce jibing. Hugo Kneft, who purchased Dan's Millie was a new attendee. It was great to have him sailing with us for the first time.
Also racing were Pete Veasey Liam O'flaherty, Arron Lee, Chris Davis, Bob Scholl, Greg Owen, Paul Turner and Pax Davis.
The racing was very competitive and the fleet was pretty compact in their finishes. The movement in the order of finishing also attested to the competitiveness of the fleet.
Saturday October 31st 2020
Halloween was a good day for five Millie racing. The breeze was 4-7 knots and not as shifty as it has been recently. We were able to alter the direction of the windward leeward course, as a result we had good windward legs and the downwind legs forced some jibes in the close contests. The racing was close but as usual Pax was easy to follow. Attending were Turner 52, Veaseyl 99, Scholl 12, C Davis 117 and P Davis 214. Turner and P Davis left after 5 races, the other three had another race. Peter Veasey was a great addition to the fleet and we look forward to Peter tuning his Millimeter #99 with the fleet.
