RC Laser Racing Little Harbour in Abaco
The weather was not looking good for an afternoon of sailing, but the weather cleared for a really good day of RC Laser racing in Little Harbour. Several of us met at Pete’s Pub for some lunch and then we set the course and had a practice race. We usually hold one practice race to get the bugs worked out and to give new sailors a chance to figure out the starting sequence and the course.
We sailed right off the beach in Little Harbour, so we needed a high tide. Winds and seas on the other side of the dune were very rough, but the harbour provided shelter and good steady B rig racing. Jim Kaighin humbly won all the races, so it was a close race for second place. Randy and Dwayne traded 2nd’s and 3rds, but Dwayne had one more 2nd place and took the second spot overall. After the racing, we then moved to the Palm Room and enjoyed Lenore’s famous brownies. Thanks to Amy Sands for again taking pictures and counting down the starts. Also thanks to Amanda Darville for some additional picture taking. Thanks to Dave and Lenore Mulock for setting the course and running our races.
Round 3 scheduled for Treasure Cay on January 26 has been postponed and we hope to reschedule. The next firm date on the tour is Schooner Bay, Saturday February 23. Results and Pictures below.
