This past Sunday 3 FBYC Flying Scots and 8 FBYC sailors attended the Final 2006 Team Race at LOWSC. Due to the dire weather predictions on Sat., Selby Bay Sailing Center did not show (someone suggested we rename them SELDOM Bay Sailing Center) and one of the three LOWSC members didn’t show either. Conditions turned out to be sunny, in the mid 60s with between 5-15 knots with occasional gusts to 20. We made the most of it and turned it into a 5 boat regatta and had a great time. Conditions were ideal for practicing all skills from very light & shifty to planing downwind on main & jib. (spinnakers were not used) Mike Miller, John Wake, & Mike Schmidt won the day with Hans Noordanus, Josh Guenther, and crew in second. Also in attendance from FBYC were: Brad Miller, Noel Clinard, Len Guenther, Ellis Hubbard, and John Hubbard.
