The last event of the year was a lot of fun. It also included some racing (two races on Saturday).
The fun part included a fantastic pot luck supper, including the Roast Pig Entrees brought by the participants in the "Leftover Roast Pig Throwdown". There were a lot of creative dishes and all were FANTASTIC! A vote was held to see which was the best, but as there was no winner, a first place tie was declared by our Commodore. John G. then ran a fun "Jinga/Scrabble" event that went well into the night.
If you like weather, there was plenty to be had. A cold front moved through early Saturday evening that reaked havoc on the tent campers. One poor tent was completly flattened. As I was not sleeping well in my flattened tent, I decided to check the boats at 3:00 or so in the morning. Twas a strange site seeing some fellows fishing at the end of the dock in this storm. Finding one of the boats had torn away from its bow line, I was able to get it back and secured before the winds picked up again (which they did with full gusto).
Sunday morning dawned bright, but with significant winds. Some of the club's more experienced sailors called it a race and stayed on shore while the rest of the fleet went out. Steve C. in his Laser seemed to be having the most fun as he was surfing his boat at about 10-12 Knots. That is until he took a cold bath or two. After about a half hour or so, the fleet came back in. The committee had called the racing on the account of too much wind.
Stay tuned for information about the upcoming Christmas Party.
Thank you everyone for making this a terrific year!
