Race #2 Results!

Hello Race Fans!

Fast and Furious left town on Saturday for Fall Series Race #2.  Replaced by spotty winds which went from “an awesome day for a sail” to the other extreme which can best described as a drunken turtle race!

That being said, thanks again for Russ and Gayle for Committee Boat duties, Commodore Anita for organizing the potluck, and Bill and Adair for an amazing Low Country Boil!

Congratulations to Captains and Crews:

A- Racers

1st Place – James Little and Crew
2nd Place – Marc Nachman and Crew


1st Place – Bill Murdoch and Crew
2nd Place – John Middaugh and Crew
3rd Place – Rob Remme

Stats are at WLSC_2017-Fall-2_Stats.

See you on the docks!
