AYC does it again!

Warm southerly winds ruffled the skirts of the 6 brave skippers that took to the waters to do battle in 4 buoy races on Padilla Bay. Very tight starts and lots of corners, including an Olympic course kept the gaily attired crews holding onto their tiaras in the mayhem. Yes a womens' regatta @AYC is a sight to behold. Of course without a system in place for gender testing or performance enhancing drugs nearly anything goes. Thanks to Charlie and Debbie Guildner for providing an RC boat and all the helper people on board also Kyle for scoring and I think I spotted 3 different bartenders. Results are posted. 7 skippers, skipped services Sunday morning for the annual singlehanded race. Tanker dock, round Huckleberry and back. Steph on the Rumpus was first across with a full spinnaker and chose to go the wrong way around Huckleberry which turned out to be the right way but still couldn't find the legs to save time on new guy Mark Robie in Zipper, results to be announced Wednesday night. We will need RC help in July as the Rumpus is headed back to it's birthplace for some regattas, please contact Andy if you can help.
