Windseekers Late Summer #2

Windseekers,
Hey! That was cool. 42 boats finished! Well...we fudged, we let the time-limit run a little long. We were still pulling anchor anyway. After the "No Wind" race on July 31st this was just what we needed. Wind.Congratulations must go out to Don & Debbie on Red Splash taking a first-to-finish in the Windseeker fleet. Just three Wednesday evenings in the series and the year. Hope you can make them all.
The results for the July 31st race have been tweaked. We missed a boat, Slow Children At Play, the raw data however didn't and the spread sheet has been corrected. Blue Moon has moved from Windseekers to PHRF and that is now reflected as well.
Next up this weekend is Vashon Challenge. A Single-hand, Double-hand around Vashon. Skippers meeting is Friday the 16th, 1830 at Rock-the-Dock Pub.
