Everyone To The Bow!

The Hope Town Cup two race series was an eventful regatta with 15 knots of wind, a shallow water course, and a close call with the committee boat….and that was just the first race! The Rage kept hitting bottom near Porgy Rock, bouncing along the iron coral. Getting everyone to the bow helps reduce their draft (they ran aground on the way back into the harbor too). Once they got to the finish line, they were so close to the committee boat that they had to pull in the prys in order not to hit it!

Day two had more wind than predicted and a few less crew, so everyone, including newbie Muffin Heyer, were ordered out on to the prys.

A big thank you goes out to Ben Doliber and Dave Pahl for keeping the bottom of the Rage clean this season!

Note: The Rage came in 8th overall after the handicaps were tallied, but it’s the experience and fun that count!
