Good news for club members! Pierre called and confirmed that the second mooring is now installed at Kingsland Bay. There are now six club moorings for use by club members. Four of the moorings are in Converse Bay and two moorings at Kingsland Bay. Hopefully the sun and weather will smile on us so their use will be enjoyed.

If the wind velocity could have equaled the number of Etchells that showed up for E3, we would have had a great day. With 7 boats on the line, winds in the first race got up to around 5 knots, allowing a double-windward leeward race. Mischief was first at the weather mark, following immediately by Pied Piper. At the leeward mark, Pied Piper rounded just ahead of 1300, with Mischief right behind, and continued its lead to finish first, followed by 1300.

With only two races completed because of light wind, this past Sunday’s E Series, which drew 7 boats, ended up with a 3-way tie for first between Hot Chocolate, Rascal and Senior Moment. That was followed by a two-way tie for fourth between Pied Piper and Rusty Truck.

The wind gods were kind to the Etchells fleet on their first Sunday E Series, June 14. The Bay had been perfect for water skiing all morning, and as the fleet left the moorings, it appeared that getting any races in might be a challenge. But by a little after 1pm, the scheduled starting time, and after a few practice starts in very light and fluky wind, a westerly finally filled in at around 5 knots, allowing the fleet to get in four races, including a windward-leeward, two double-windward-leewards and a windward-leeward-windward.
