EC-12S ran today with swirling and wildly varying winds we got in 8 races before Chris O’s boat (#49) broke a winch line to his jib. Rick L finished first with his boat 1 race. Rick G won 2 and for the first time in his racing career Chris O. won 5 races captaining Rick G’s number 49 blue and white EC-12. After calling it a day due to the breakage we chatted laughed and had a blast. See you all soon NMYC
The weather was cool and mostly cloudy, and morning winds were low, around 0-5 mph, that came from the NNW. Right around 10 a.m., the winds fell to 1mph and shifted around with small gusts up to 5mph.

I would like to thank Jerry for keeping score and the time clock going. Chris O’ for bring the Nashua colors and flying them to indicate we are holding an event. The parks and recreation department (Jason and their team) for making the park and pond presentable. Results of the races are as follows:
Unfortunately the Schooner, Sloop, and Electric Boat Event scheduled for today had to be canceled due to strong wind that would make sailing some of the boats unsafe to sail. The event may be rescheduled. Otherwise, another event is scheduled for September 4, 2021. See you then.
This is a new addition to the fleet of boats I now have. This is a Pete Peterson designed V36. This boat sailed at Spring Lake NJ for a few years and tied for second in 2002 or 2003 when sailed by June Pendino. The workmanship on this boat is magnificent.
