2013 Race To The Straits

May 7, 2013

DFL in our division Saturday.  Ugh . . .   DNS Sunday due to outboard problems.  Ugh . . .

Still, STYC put on a great race, and the party in Port Townsend was fun.

Friday’s delivery to Shilshole was an easy 30 mile run.  Saturday’s leg of the race was a beat into stiff winds all the way back to Port Townsend.  The weather was nice, but in my small-ish boat we really took a pounding.  Sunday’s leg–the one we DNS–was probably the best Seattle sailing day ever.  80 degrees, sunny skies, and a 15-20 knot breeze behind the fleet all the way back to Shilshole.  I watched the fleet approach Edmonds from the deck of a Washington State ferry.  It was all I could do not to pluck out my own eyes.

Oh well, the 70 miles or so we did get in were fun, and there’s always next year.
