Twas the day after Christmas and all through the bay
5 Day Sailers raced on a warm summers day
There was War Horse and Swamp Thing and Stooze Bote and This Side Up
And a Christmas Miracle because What showed up

Rigging at the boat ramps

It's Bob

Angie is back.
Lil and Angie ready to sail
Dave and Mark thinking
What is Dave holding?  It is some piece from the boat that Bob built this summer.  Not good.
Bob having lunch probably during the skippers meeting since he skipped the reaching mark on the first race.
Stu and Andy.  Nice wind maybe 6-12 from the East, Southeast
Andy on the helm
Bob and Angie heading right for us. 
Stu and Mark reset the starting line for the third race to accommodate the wind shift.  We eliminated the reaching mark  and just did windward/leeward.  Bob must have been having a snack again because he went to the reach mark anyway but still won the race.
Stu and Mark crossing
Mark and Lil making sure the Kelly's don't tack
Stu in the lead
Mark and Lil sailing off somewhere

Beau and Dedee Plessner in What made it out for Races 2-5.  They got two firsts.
Photo finish.  Bob and Angie squeaked in ahead of the Kelly's.  That is Dave's big head in the picture.

Everyone got a first today except for our Champions Mark & Lil.  They had their issues.

The competition continued the next evening at Stu and Shirley's home. 

 Pool Party!

Mark was the winner for the night!

Or Bob was?

Lil and Angie didn't care.

Thanks Stu and Shirley for hosting the pool party.  We will let you know when you can do it again.

Next race is changed from January 9 to January 16th because of the Good Old Boat Race.  We will still race on January 23.
