Event News

What a great weekend for racing with plenty of wind to get the entire fleet around the full course legs. The forecast rain for the most part left us alone. We loved the time together with our crew in Roche Harbor Saturday night and visiting with other boats on the docks. There was one of the strangest finishes Saturday night out side of Roche that I remember. Challenging and memorable apply. Super fun weekend. Thanks go to Charley Rathkopf for running the starts like clock work and for getting the results posted in a timely fashion — with the help on dozens of volunteers from the Orcas Island Yacht Club and the Friday Harbor Sailing Clubs.
