Heatstroke Sailboats at Tempe Town Lake
On a warm Sunday afternoon (31 July 2011), a few desert-hardy sailors showed up for Heatstroke Series sailing at Tempe Town Lake in Arizona. We couldn't stay long because we had errands to run before heading back to New Mexico, but we visited with folks for a bit.
The race signals are given from ashore.
The mark boat has the generally simple job of setting and later removing the pin buoys for the starting line.
