Sailing Family Weekend - October 15, 2016

There were 8 boats amidst brilliant fall colors in the Dublin 2016 Family Regatta Saturday afternoon 10/15.  Winds were on-and-off again from the south, and from that direction Mt Monadnock strongly influences how and where on the lake the wind blows.  The fluky South wind was certainly frustrating for the sailors!  But it create a venue for the race course right in front of the Whitney Boat House.  Onlookers lined the race course on 3 sides, at the boathouse, along the highway at the bottom of Cemetery Cove, and from Peanut Rock on the opposite side of the cover from the boathouse.  After the first race, to accomplish in the light air the 5 races for the day before the agreed upon 3:30 end time the coaches in the RC boat shortened the course and then shortened it again.  Race 4 was a super short 2-leg up-and-back which put a huge premium on each team's boat making an excellent start because there was so little course on which to play catch-up.  After all the gear was cleaned up there were the usual awards for 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place finishers.
