Mike Martin and Jeff Nelson took one big step toward winning the 505 Worlds by winning todays 8th race. Mike Holt and Carl Schmidt, who were leading going into today, finished 8th. Winds were 8-13 knots and the race course was pretty even.
After a long delay, today’s sole race got underway at 1445. The unusally hot weather shut the winds down until that time. Sun burns were the order of the days rather than the normal crash and burn that we are used to in August.
We had a good one finishing 5th after being the rabbit for the start. We are still 7th over all but just two points out of 6th.
Tomorrow is the last race with a scheduled start time of 1200.
