Viper and J/80 Sport Boats Sailing at Lake Pleasant (Sunday, 21 October 2012)

Sportboats hanging together on the east side of Lake Pleasant during Fall Series racing day four. Pairs of Vipers and J/80s keep it very close.

Sunday saw a slightly different cast of racers and boats; a trimaran and some of the Catalina 22s went home, but were replaced by a group of catamarans.

Sunday was quite nice on the water, with the winds quickly switching from a northerly early morning drainage wind to the more prevailing southerly direction while the race committee was setting the courses. A lull set in near mid-day and many boats went home, but more winds followed within an hour, letting people still on the lake enjoy cruising around or sailing just for fun.
