Havest Moon Race & Raftup

Last Thursday we were race committee for the annual final scheduled weeknight race of the season and raftup party.

Joyce working the prep flag for the start. Derek flew the class flag, and Janel worked the horn. I timed the start and barked orders.

We sent the roughly 20 boats in a single start to NEWNS, with the wind coming from the north.

Janel, Derek and Joyce enjoy the after sunset glow as the racers finish.

This is what I look like after doing a shot of last year's victory rum from The Wellness Cup. We finished the bottle that night, so we'll just have to win another this Saturday.

Celeste & John aboard Witchcraft with Gary from Shameles. It was a small raftup this year; I guess we didn't get the word out. But we really enjoyed Celeste's awesome blue drinks!

Derek helmed the boat all the way in after dark. It was a great way to end the Thursday race series, and we have the Wellness Cup scheduled for Oct. 3rd.
