Steve Wesson, PRO, did a fine job. The kitchen crew did a great job with food and drink for all both days, we couldn't have done it without them!

Barry Bowden, pulling the anchors up yet again on the weather mark boat. Sunday we had to use 3 anchors to sorta hold us in position. That skin will grow back I hope.

Mike Kilpatrick showed me the ropes on the race committee weather mark boat. We stayed busy, I tell you what! Most of the time we were setting and resetting the windward buoy in over 100 feet of water, and the mark for the finish, and anchoring our boat for the finish line, AND writing down the results.

It's a lot of fun pulling up the windward mark's over 100 feet of rode to put another anchor on because the high wind is dragging one anchor, but not near as much fun as 10 minutes later pulling up TWO anchors to move the mark a couple hundred feet to try to keep the course straight in the shifting winds, only to get to do it again to move it right back where we started. You should try it! I recommend gloves.
