Marsh Harbour Kicks Off 2013 Abacos Series

Beautiful January weather was on tap for the first round of the RC Laser Tour of Abaco. Winds were unfortunately very light and out of an unfavorable location for this venue. We had a good turnout with 2 first timers, Cameron Sands and Thomas Key. The light winds proved to be trouble for not only the regulars, but especially for the newbies. The course then had to be shortened to a part of the harbour that had more consistent winds. Weeds were also an issue catching Jim Kaighin’s keel in race 2. Then, after much of the fleet sitting in storage for about 8 months, electronic problems gave Randy and Thomas trouble.

Round 2 will be held in Little Harbour January 19th. Come for lunch at Pete’s Pub and the racing starts at 2:00 . Lenore’s famous brownies will be served following the racing. And as always, thanks to Lenore Mulock for running the races and also to Amy Sands for counting down the starts and taking pictures while Ylva was recovering from a cold. We hope to see Ylva and Anders in Little Harbour. Results below.
