Blown Out!

The lake looked awfully empty this afternoon

Week 1 of racing at Massapoag got off to an inauspicious start, as the wind blew away any chance of racing.  Wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour made safety an issue on the course, and the assembled skippers decided that it was more important to live to fight another day.

Next week is a Massapoag holiday. It is Mother's Day, and there is no racing in honor of all of our mothers.  Wednesday Night pursuit racing starts on May 14, and the annual Massapoag Safety Seminar is on May 17. Sunday racing resumes on May 18.

  1. "Wednesday Night pursuit racing starts on May 11." Huh? May 11 is a Sunday

  3. I drove past your lake about 12:30 on my way home from hiking with the grandkids at Borderland State Park. It did look quite an exciting little breeze. Didn't anybody go out for a fun blast around in those juicy gusts?

  4. Not a soul. It must have been a vicious breeze because we all shot it instead of sailing in it.

  5. Would have been a great day to demo some RS Aeros!
