7 June - So the 2016 JYC Spring series is in the books with an interesting weather evening, and our first venture “outside”. Thankfully, the fog never rolled in enough to obscure our finish. Hopefully, it wasn’t too bad out in the channel south of House On The Rocks. Thanks to all who braved the early season chills and drizzle. On to the summer series…. See you on the water next week.
PS. Thanks for putting up with the slip designating race mark 3; 30 year habits are hard to break.
