April 15th was one of those easterlies we love so much.  The wind was 10 to 20 with gusts higher and  30 degree shifts.  We had three boats today.  Andy came down to crew with Stu but was so sick that Stu let Andy off the hook.  We probably all should have stayed ashore.  We set a windward/leeward course and got the first race started.  The Kelly's were in the lead on the first downwind and set the spinaker, gybed it in a lull, doused and rounded the mark.  Their timing was good because as soon as they rounded the mark they were in a strong gust.  Bob and Bob were preparing to douse and had just removed the pole when the gust hit them.  They were history and Bob got another successful capsize under his belt.  He is safely in the lead for "most capsizes".

Finally up.  They got their main back up and we all headed to the docks.

Pool Party at Stu and Shirley's tonight
