It was blowing in the 20’s and seemed to be building at race time on Friday (4/8/2016). Several crews decided to go out anyway and the race committee (Dave Burrows) went off to City Dock to set up the course. However, after mulling it over, and listening to the wind howling in the masts at the marina, it was decided that a better idea would be to consume the race beer and other refreshments at the dock. John Lynes rode his bike down to City Dock to tell Dave. While there he saw that Martha and Sparkle had made it out and seemed to be enjoying the strong winds. Several of the other crews took shelter in Jim Heumann and Karen Sullivan’s power boat (Raven) for an impromptu dock party. Let’s hope for better conditions next Friday.
