2019 Sloop Race

April 14, 2019   SMP 

Greetings to the Fleet.

Four skippers tackled gusty, shifting conditions to deliver exciting racing action today.

Skipper Ron took line honors. He edged Cap’n Art by a quarter boatlength, if that, in the final race of the day. What an awesome finish!

A day of tactics, lead swaps, last-second recoveries from puffs, and some fine boathandling started the 2019 racing season.

Thanks especially to past Commodore Art Matje for loaning the fleet his two Sweet 16s.

Congratulations Ron on your Sloop Race victory.
