We had 8 Waves at the start line for the Carlisle Classic this year. All were club boats except for Mike Powers who came into town for the race and brought his own boat. Mike won by a long-shot with bullets across the board. CJ Bast came in second in almost every race (with one 3rd and one 4th place finish.) Your's truly was third over all with two 2nd place finishes and 3rd place otherwise. For the rest of the fleet, the deciding factor was more on how many races they finished than what place they came in (all of us except Mike were new to regatta racing.)
Wind was 10-15mph with occasional gusts up to 20 and steady out of the NE both days. The food was great and Mike gave CJ and I lots of tips on how to improve our sailing and be more of a challenge for him (even while we were on the water! He's a great guy.)
A great time was had by all, and hopefully our club will be able to make a better showing of itself next time and more outsiders will come give us a challenge!
