The post-race Party

The results are in, we won 1st place in our division by roughly 9 minutes. In a five hour race that isn't necessarily a huge margin.

Joyce, Janel and me, with the eminently practical "trophy".

Close-up of the engraved mug. The beer tasted sweeter than 2nd place!

View from the deck. The weather was decent, but not nearly as nice as race day was.

The big raffle. Joyce won a harvest flower arrangement, but Mike snagged the Pentax digital camera, and his gal Nancy won the giant wine cache! It was a good day for them!

Janel with the perfunctory "Dark 'n Stormy", which described the weather when I brought the boat over on Friday.

Did I mention how good the beer tastes out of a 1st Place mug?

Yes, you did, but what exactly is a 'Dark & Stormy'? Me thinks I'd rather have tall one of those in the first place stein!

Gosling's Dark Rum & ginger beer over ice. It's a favorite of sailors around these parts, especially when the weather turns a bit harsh.

But I'm a beer drinker first, and that amber Autumn Harvest Lager was pretty damn good!
