Windy Start to First Weekend of MBYC Fall Series

Windy Start to First Weekend of MBYC Fall Series

Things got off to a moderate start on Saturday with the first two races sailed in light shifty conditions, with the final race of the day bringing on the breeze that would hold for the rest of the weekend. Paul Beaudin and team loulou had the edge on day one to take all three races with Damian Emery's Eclipse in second, and a strong showing by Marcus Wunderlich's Stratos in third. Revelation, skippered by George Wilbanks, came on strong on the windy second day to win both races. Day one had some interesting action with the fleet heading to a change mark, only to have it picked up and towed off with the fleet in pursuit. Turned out, the change was for another class. Day two had cool temps and solid breeze in the 20 knot range with higher gusts. Loulou broke their jib tack at the start of the first race putting them back a few minutes, with Revelation showing their usual comfort in high wind to take the gun. Stratos blew the tack off the kite just at the finish but held off a late charge by loulou. Next Saturday will be the last of the 2014 LIS Season with a distance race.   Results
