Race1Sunday, Nov. 27 — The weekend race started Friday as a brooding calm, not ideal yachting conditions. But by 10:30, when the race began, the wind cooperated by freshening, sending some decent rollers towards the start line at the mouth of the inner harbor.

Race2Nothing could have been more beautiful than a half dozen gaff-rigged sailboats jockeying for position in the sparkling morning light. Class after class of boats, the majority being manned by single- handed sailors, crossed the start line to head into the wind to the byte mark and back.

Race3 Saturday was even more brooding than Friday with actual squalls in  the harbor. But once again, the Thanksgiving weekend weather  cooperated turning into a sparkling crystal clear day with a nice  breeze, The awards ceremony was a blast as usual.. The raffle a huge success. Congratulations to another fabulous year of racers and racing, and thanks to the Coral Bay Yacht Club for hosting this event!
