In what was supposed to be a wet and windy night, a few brave Wednesday night racers had to settle for a wet night with no wind! The RC set a course for the prevailing SE winds, only to have it completely shut off.
Our town crier Richard solicited the wind Gods with a song and to our amazement the wind magically appeared, except this time from the NW! The RC managed to get one race started (same start for all boats) in a course completely opposite from what they planned - but hey, we will take what we can get...
So the moral of the story is - when the wind shuts off, call Richard and have him call up the wind for you - seems to work every time!
PS - now what happens when he sings backward - does this mean the wind shuts off?
