2014 Poltergeist Results

Saturday racing was cancelled because of high winds.  We had consistent winds around 25 mph with gusts ranging from 30 to 35mph!  We had a blast on Saturday watching football, playing cards, having a few pops, and the highlight was the famous pork chop dinner.  We also had entertainment with a karaoke machine.  Joe Hurst rocked the house with several songs.

On Sunday we had steady winds in the low teens out of the southwest (210 range).  We had four excellent races with Steve Aspery and crew Lisa Aspery and Alan Freeland taking four bullets.  All of the races where extremely competitive.  At the top of course it paid to get left and approach the mark on port tack coming in from the island which was off to the left.  Consequently downwind it paid to hug the island side the first 1/3 of the downwind leg and jibe to the middle to approach the leeward mark.  In race 3 Team Aspery took a quick tack on starboard and launched out of a cannon on port to cross the fleet.  It happened right in front of my boat and it was awesome to watch.  Andy McDonald sailing his dad’s boat (#1401) sailed very consistent and finished second overall.  Don Wilson sailing with his son, Tim, and friend, Matt, also sailed very consistent and finished third.
