Quiet beginning to the RGSC Fall Series 2 Regatta, October 9, 2010

Balboa 20 sails by the C&C28 Renovatio, which was anchored as the race committee signal boat prior to starting the first race of the Fall Series 2 Regatta at Elephant Butte Lake. Two races were completed on Saturday in spite of very gentle breezes. All of the boats at this race were from the Rio Grande Sailing Club's cruising fleet.

Race results with elapsed times, if attached to this post, would make interesting reading.

As it is, I have to ask two questions:

(1) Is the B-20's outboard all the way out of the water? (Can't tell!)
(2) Shouldn't that black dog be sitting to leeward?

I think one of the boats at the regatta was racing with its fenders still out! In very light air, some cruisers have difficulty determining the wind direction and trim settings.

Nellie dog likes foredeck but may not have learned high-side / low-side.

More pix to come.

Racing against cruisers = taking candy from babies!
