Race Day 10/25/20

Today was a beautiful day for sail boat racing albeit cold. Sadly only half of the members of the club were in attendance. However in the half that made it we had an even split with 7 t37’s and 7 Dragons which is a bit unusual but very gratifying to see. The t37 class has been building slowly but in a very strong manner that I think has durability. Those who made it today know I had a great day, my best ever. The wins  in the dragons were much more evenly distributed with great racing. The wind varied from ferocious to almost dead calm, many boats did some some bow dancing especially on the downwind legs. Today’s weather was a bit more frost bity than mid fall and some sailors were caught off guard temperature wise, the wind had a definite bite. So today wrapped up our summer series for what we could do around the covid problem. We have one more scheduled event on Sat nov 7th noon at tualatin commons for a season finale funsail I hope to see everyone there for some casual sailing and racing. We are on the look out for a meeting place for mid January (no date picked yet) that can handle 20 members with proper six foot distancing, space needs 4walls lighting and a restroom, food is not mandatory but maybe preferred. I am open to all suggestions, I have one maybe in NE pdx Stan will be checking on Elmers Delta Park other than that it is an open plate. So start your repairs and improvements and we’ll put together another great frostbite series for next year.  Thanks Gary
