It was snowing and Terry Waters was the only sailor brave enough to show up.  No racing took place.

Spring Series #3 - March 18

After an hour of drifting around waiting for the wind, Race Committee decided to start a short windward to finish race for something to do. It was a drifter but everyone made it around the course and spirits were lifted. Unfortunately the first boat finished just a couple minutes shy of the 30 minute minimum length of race that is required for the race to count. This little jaunt did manage to summon the wind, and Race Committee pulled off two good solid races for the day. With a northerly breeze at 4-7 knots, the Snake Island Bell buoy was the windward mark from the start line off Angle Point. Race 2 (or the first race that counted) was a windward - reward. Race 3 threw in a mark off Protection Island making a triangular course. The sun even came out of the last race of the day and smiles were wide! Check the NYC Facebook page for photos.

Spring Series #5 - April 29

The last race day of the season began with some serious rain that cleared for the majority of the race and all sails were put away dry at the end of the day. The course was a start between Encanto and Snake Island Bell Buoy, upwind to Five Fingers Island, around Entrance, and finish at Snake Bell Buoy. This was a shortened course from the original which had the finish in the harbor. The wind began with a decent 10 knots and there was a great, tactical upwind leg with position changes on almost every tack. Spinnakers went up enroute to Entrance, but the wind dropped and it was very slow going. It became a close reach by the time we reached Entrance and most of the spinnakers disappeared. The return to Snake Bell Buoy was a bit of a struggle as everyone tried to optimize their light wind sailing, and figure out where the wind was coming from. Great day on the water and close of the Spring Series!
