Rain on Day 1

Not much racing on the first day of the Annapolis NOOD regatta.  The J109 fleet went went out to the course in fog and sat around postponed.  The fog lifted when a thunderstorm came through just south of the racing area.  There was a little wind after the storm and we got to do some sailing, but the race committee never had steady enough wind to set a course and blew off the day by 3:30.

We did get a little video from the top of the mast:

Stopped by the party and caught up with some of the other Fishing Bay Yacht Club members at the regatta this weekend.

Sunday afternoon we made a GoPro mount for the back of a J109 that I’ll be racing in next week at the Annapolis NOOD Regatta.

We took a 8′ white wood curtain rod, fit it in the flag pole and added a GoPro to the top of it.  I have yet to add a safety line and bungee tensioner to help keep it from bouncing around.  Look for video from this next week.

Here’s what it looked like:
