A stiff Nor'easter and Sunshine welcomed eight able skippers for the sixth round of metre yacht racing in the club's current series. There were gusts, lulls, backs and veers in the breeze, what to speak of some engaging, if not entertaining sailing.

Course: 5/8 Start line - ( 'zero' - 1 - 6 - OB) x 2 - Fin' 3/BO.

Today's "Triple Ripple" :- 1st Place - #63 RD, 2nd - #80 JB, 3rd - #85 TR.
