Perry Cup #2

15 Mercs competed in this month's racing in the Perry Cup Series. This brought the total of the competitors for all 8 races to 17. It was a sunny day and there was enough wind to get the Mercs to the starting area. It took a while for the race committee to set a course until a very weak breeze gave them decent direction. There was a swell running, but very little chop.

The first race was a twice around sausage, finishing downwind. The starting line was set so one had to tack to port to cross. David Morris with Jared January and the Chandlers, Mark and Liz, led the fleet to the right side of the course. Bill and Katie Worden led to the left side of the course. Worden was first around the weather mark. However as the wind was dying, Morris and Chandler passed him downwind to the finish on the shortened course. Morris was first followed by Chandler and Worden.

A breeze, about four knots came to the fleet and race two was off. Twice around and this would work. Jim Bradley with Gage Bradford started right at the pin end of the starting line. they tacked immediately to the port tack then after a very short time back to starboard to the favored side of the course. Bradley held the lead to win. He was followed by Doug Baird with Kate Conway. Morris placed third. This puts Bradley and Morris tied for first in the series after eight races. The scheduled third race did not take place.

Once again Dick Clark, running the race committee, showed great patience to get two races completed.
Many thanks to Dick and his crew for good job on the water.
