RC Laser Regatta Double Dips at Snappas
Round 5 of the RC Laser Tour of Abaco returned to Snappas for a second event. It was a warm summer day in the middle of winter. A light south off-shore wind was forecasted and we started off that way, but the races were soon postponed after a brief rain shower. The wind that we had was drawn away by the passing showers and then shifted more to the west, and then back to the south, and then back to the west and finally ended up out of the northeast, so we called it a day after 7 races. Anders Ljungholm got off to a quick start winning the first race. Brandon Sands had a great showing, recording three 2nds and finished 3rd overall after his second radio controlled regatta. But Jim Kaighin won 5 of the 7 races to win the day.
We must thank Snappas for welcoming us to use their facilities. Also, thanks to Harbour View Marina for the use of their dock. Ylva Ljungholm manned the count-down clock and took the pictures, while Lenore Mulock kept us on our toes and kept the starts clean; thanks Lenore and Ylva. We are looking forward to returning to Little Harbour March 22. Also on the calendar is the 24th Annual Homer Lowe Memorial Regatta April 5-6. The headquarters will be Snappas. Sunfish and Optimist classes will be racing.
