Summer Solstice Race Results

After our late start this year, the conditions for racing on Saturday could not have been better. 8-12 knots SSE, steady with few holes to either get stuck in or to take advantage of. Much hotter than it seemed as evidenced by the bright red burns on some.

We had two boats representing the Silver Fleet (non-spinnaker), Sanity and Rob Nuttall, so we would like to encourage more boats entering into this category.

There were a few close battles along the way with Auberg and Raven exchanging positions a few times. At the finish line it was Raven and Grand Cru neck and neck with Grand Cru edging out Raven by a boat length for honours. Micangelo shaved the distance by cutting close to the last island to pass Auberg in the final ½ mile.

Results Summer Solstice Pursuit 2013:

Grand Cru 1st

Raven 2nd

Micangelo 3rd

Auberge 4th

Black Knight 5th

Rob Nuttall 7th (2nd in Silver Fleet)
