May 14, 2016The last races of the season were on a beautiful, warm and sunny day. We had shifting westerlies with 5 boats on the course. The dolphins were plentiful and they even played with us a bit, diving under our boats and coming up for a peak on the other side.
Look closely. There is a dolphin.

Five boats did 5 races. The Kelly's and Stu and Andy retired after the five and the other 3 boats stayed out for a 6th race. What is this? Sarasota.

Here comes the shots we have all been waiting for --- the photo finish.
|Nice close finish but still hard to tell without a line on both pins. You be the judge.|
Scores? Stu won a couple of races, the Kelly's won a couple of races-- Who won the last race? Do you think we should keep track next year? Take a vote.
Closing Party at Angies - Worst dress party
|Janet was pretty mild compared to last year|
|This was a real outfit that Angie's mother wore back in the day minus the shoes, socks and horizontal striped shirt|
|We really don't know who this is - some nerdy woman crashed our party|
|Always a little ping pong action|

News FlashThe Day Sailer women defended their 5 year winning streak by taking first place again in the Women's Challenge in Boca Ciega. Peter once again generously donated his S2 7.9 for the event.
