    J/125s Are AWESOME

    As a former Porsche cup car racer I will stop by and look at the boat in SE FL. Sounds exciting

    Woops. Years ago I directed a half marathon in Baltimore. 3 miles out one of the course volunteers sent the runners left instead of right. We lost 500 runners for 7 minutes or so... eventually they hooked back up on the proper route a world records were shattered!

    My crew expressed a wtf at the G7 approach but after that looking forward to the next race. We know how we did and how we can do better. Every race is a learning experience and we enjoy the event. Great time none the less.

    We got underway from TAYC at 6:30 by powerboat. 1.5 hours back to Annapolis via Knapps Narrows. Half hour after getting tied up in Annapolis the wind and rain was relentless. I drove over the bay bridge during the peak and it was nasty.

    Musky, You are half right. Yes 3:40 something but we (J-88) finished ahead of you ;-) you were north of the can and aft of us when we crossed. We have video! Tim?? Tim will confirm. This was before he started on the craft beers.

    We crossed the G7 & RC line at 16:45. RC was in the process of pulling their anchor (Hinckley 55) and the H-38 was underway.

    The shortened course was understandable and expected. Shortly after the RC made that announcement we are sailing for the finish at 4.3 knots with less than a mile to go first in A2. We are pleased all our efforts would pay off. Then the second announcement came to abandon the race. We watched the RC boats pull up anchor as we noted our time and crossed the line. Swan 47 (?) was 2nd in A2 as far as we could tell. TAYC had maybe 20 boats of the 90

    J-35's continue to have a strong local fleet with 5 boats. A2 is a big crowd in the NASS to Oxford race but only 11 boats here. 16 in A0/1. Maybe Donnybrook will show up under a new owner. :-)

    Sailflow says south 12-16 from 10:00-15:00 on race day. I am sure that will change by Saturday. Hopefully clock around to the N or NW. 100 boats in May, 180 boats in September for the NASS event. Did not look it up but maybe 50 for the August race.
