First Fleet Races of the New Year 2015

January 10, 2015
We had 5 boats today.  Bob's boat not shown because he does not believe in mast head flies.

Brrrr.  Overcast skies with wind predicted to pick up to 10-15 for the afternoon.
Lil is prepared for the cold.  Make sure "This Side Up" stays this side up.
Mark and Dave chillin' before launching.

Bob and Bob figuring out how to put a stop knot in.

Janet is untangling the running rigging.
Mark & Lil warming up before the start

Stu and Andy getting ready.
We had 3 good races.  The wind never came in as predicted but we got a little sunshine and high 60's with wind north northeast about 6-10.  The wind shifted right before the 4th race which left the course a bid skewed but we raced it anyway.  
The Kelly's bow with Mark and Lil by the mark.

Close one.

Here they all come.  Where are the Kelly's.  They must have taken the picture from out in front. Ha
Close finish with the Bobs just eking out ahead for the finish.

Next Fleet Race Sunday, January 25th at Belleair Causeway
