The Wellness Cup 2009

The Wellness Cup was another fun race this year. The weather was slightly better than last year because the rain stopped right before the start. Even though we wore our foulies for most of the race, it was dry and reasonably warm out there. The breeze averaged around 8-10 most of our race, but got weak and variable right after we finished.

Transporting the boat to Branford the day before, it was much cooler. Joyce warmed up with a swig of Capt. Morgan "Tattoo".

During the pre-start I was able to snap a quick photo of "Sagacious".

Joyce did most of the genny trimming, and she did a great job during the variable conditions.

Me, steering and self-portraiting.

Post-finish we broke out a bottle of wine and toasted a successful race.

Yes, I toasted as well.

Sunday at the awards ceremony, we got a trophy and a nice bottle of wine.

Final results are posted on The Wellness Cup website.
