  1. The Nirvana Regatta for November went on Friday the 23rd instead of Saturday as the weather is to turn cold. Forecast north winds of 10-15 never showed, and the race could have been dubbed the Tryptophan Trophy as much time was spent dozing off waiting for wind. Bob (91) and Gerry (90) had an early tie after 3 with 5 points, then Gerry played the light winds well and Bob faded to a distant second. Jeff (87) gave up a safe 3rd to some late nifty sailing by William (61). He nailed down 3rd with a win as the tie breaker. Hopefully, the weather will continue to allow sailing. – Jeff

    Results:
    Gerry: 2 – 2 – 1 – 2 -1 = 8
    Bob : 1 – 1 – 3 – 5 – 4 = 14
    William: 4 – 5 – 5 – 1 – 2 = 17
    Jeff: 3 – 3 – 2 – 4 – 5 = 17
    Dick: 5 – 4 – 4 – 3 – 3 = 19

  2. Nice writing, Jeff. I think light wind is my friend. Congrats again to Gerry. A real pro.
    Jeff, You and I were in the same boat those last races (couldn’t resist the pun, man)!
