I'd like to formally recognize Eastern YC RC PRO, Susie Schneider, assisted by Nancy Glover and Jack Cochran, whom ran 4 short course informal races on Sunday Afternoon for the Etchells, J70 and Sonars in the cold and blustery North west wind conditions.
The races didn't count for spring series but they were great practice with dinghy starts from the EYC inflatable. They did a fantastic job of communicating with the fleet over the VHF 78 on courses, start sequence and intensions so the fleet understood clearly the practice. The practice races were held inside Marblehead bell between Cat island and harbor entrance.
Everyone really enjoyed the practice session that was much like the successful laser racing they have been running in the spring and Fall. Well done Susie, Nancy and Jack in the very cold, puffy and challenging conditions.
Thanks Jud & Cindy Smith
[Editor's note: Thanks also go out to Dana Woodward, Norris Strawbridge and Richard Sides for their help with setting marks and manning the safety boat!]
