FALL RACING SERIES - RACE 1 & 2 RESULTS
SEPTEMBER 6, 2014
Once again, the Cape Fear Yacht Club sailors conquered the mighty Cape Fear River and all the stormy elements thrown at them Saturday to initiate the fall racing series for spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes. Eight boats registered for the initial races, but several more fair weather racers are expected to join the fleet for the next races October 11. The first two races were completed as all got a little wet, but none were deterred in their quest for a win. Winds were out of the south southwest at 6 knots to start and increased to 13 knots for the second race. Currents were quickly running to sea for the first race, but turned and were building back up river for the second race. Each tactician had their own special strategy for dealing with the tricky currents, some were successful and some were not. Of special note, Skipper John Bates’ vessel, Stray Cat, was named the “prettiest boat” by one of the young ladies on the race committee boat. Sometimes a racer has to be a winner anyway they can.
The Cape Fear Yacht Club invites all interested sailors to come race with us. All club members are automatically eligible. Non-members are welcome to join all racing events at a slightly increased registration fee. Our goal is to have more racers on the water to enjoy sailing in a fun and safe environment.
