Port Jefferson Race & Rendezvous

We had perfect weather again for the 2010 PJ R&R last weekend. Joyce, Janel and I were Race Committee as usual, and the cross-Sound race started promptly at 11AM on Saturday.

Evergreen was an early boat in the staggered-start race, where each boat was given a start time base on their handicap rating. So some boats started right around 11:05, while the fastest boat started at 11:45 for the 11-mile race.

Fleet Captain Larry Welch pilots his boat around the start line.

Defiant hits the start line under full sail.

Jeff, Kyle and friend aboard Schock Therapy sail by just before the start.

Oz makes it's debut at the 2010 PJ R&R. It's good to see that boat on the water!

After our crossing, we rafted up with friends Tim & Lori's new boat, the Albin 31 "Ebb Tide".

The beach party looks suspiciously like a rave with all the glow sticks and dancing! Great time once again this year, and thanks are due to the Windjammers Sailing Club officers and volunteers for putting on such a great race and party!

Sounds like yet another great event. I particularly liked the glow stick pictures in the dark!

Yeah, and there's video of the kids dancing with the glow sticks on my Facebook page, too.
