Sailing began is light southerlies. As the day passed, the breeze built to 15 and clocked to the southwest. Success at this event meant meant that the sailors had ot know how to shift gears as the wind built. However, many sailors ground rahter than shifted. The increasing breeze took it toll on the fleet as by the middle of the day, eight boats were out of service for repairs. Resourceful model boat sailors quickly performed the needed repairs and return the boats to the action. Through the day, Luscomb and Ramos were able to shift gears most effectively and traded positions at the front. Howie McMichael, Julian Croxall sailed well with Howie ending up third. Kevin MacLellan was also a steady performer and finished in fifth. Model boat sailors from as far away away as Mablehead, MA to Annapolis MD came to the club to participate. Dave Van Cleef of Deep River, CT flew in from Sri Lanka. The fleet completed 26 heats in two sections for a total of 12 races (two seeding heats).
