FBYC One Design Fall Series

2016 FBYC One Design Fall Series #1

The first of the one design fall series I borrowed a Front Runner and took my friend Patrick Conroy for his first sail on a Front Runner.  Save one race we weren’t much of a match for the other very experienced Front Runner sailors, but we had fun and Patrick even got to drive the last race.

After racing we were joined by Jen and Patrick’s wife Lauren for dinner at Merroir.

2014 FBYC Fall One Design Invitational

It turned out to be a great day of sailing despite the forecast that wasn’t calling for any wind at FBYC’s One Design Fall Series #3. Doug and Jordan Bendura jumped on the Front Runner with me to sail against the 2 other boats in our fleet today.

The day was a mix of learning the boat, trying to pick the shifts and sailing in more current than I’ve ever seen in that part of the Piankatank due to some unusually high tides.  Mark and Melissa Stephens sailed well – their maneuvers were nice and crisp and they had great boat speed all the way around the course.  We picked some shifts to keep up with them some of the time and we were also fending off Lee who was challenging us for 2nd place.

We wound up 2-2-2 in the first 3 races.  For the 4th race Jordan drove and he did well – we won that race.
