On Saturday - a nice breeze filled in for the first race (9-14 mph) from 240 degrees, pretty much down the middle of the lake. Brian Porter (I-49) lead the whole way with Vincent Porter (I-2) chasing him.
There was a little gap between first and second race as the wind clocked a little left for a while but then steady out at 230 degrees to give us another race course with about 1.3-4 miles legs. Course was 5 legs and winds were 11-15 mph. In the second race it was Kevin Jewett that lead at every mark rounding. Jamie Kimbell (SL-4) in second and Harry Melges (III) with his young son, Harry IV, trading time on the tiller was third.
 
 
On Friday - Race one and two were in in light winds 5-8 mph from the SSW. Race one was more to the west that allowed a long first beat of about 1.3 miles. The second race was light with the wind a little more S, about 205 degrees at the start. First leg was 1 mile, constrained by the width of the lake. Shifts were large and the pressure was up an down across the course but the left seems to have an advantage of the right for the most part.
