HHSA at CHESSS Poplar Island Race
Blew Bayou II finished 2nd out of 2 boats in the double handed jam (non spin) class. We were within 90 seconds corrected time. So close, yet….
In better news, Bob Spann sailed Resilient to a commanding win of the Alerion 28 OD class. (Out of 2 boats racing). He was 24 minutes ahead of the second boat, too. Nicely done, Bob!!
Firth of Tay also registered to race but did not start.
Despite WindAlert predicting 5-7 kt winds, we had nearly constant 10-12 kts for most of the race. They did shorten the course from the 15 nm course to the 10 nm course We could not have asked for better race conditions, or for better wind to sail home from West River.
