Good Morning and Happy Veterans Day to all!

I think you would all agree that Sunday was a fabulous day to be out on the water. As I drove around the bay toward Centre Island, I looked out over the glassy bay and was convinced that we would have a drifter at best. As I pulled into the parking lot, I began to see some ripples on the water and a tiny breeze filling in from the south and west. By the time we headed out, we had about 6 kts from the west. Plenty to get going. John McGrane and I were in agony as we watched the fleet of 16 sail around the course; we observed that there would not be many more days as warm and easygoing as this past Sunday.

Attached are the results which David Trinder has been kind enough to process until Eric Johnson is released from the manacles of various judge and umpire duties that delay him from joining us.

I am also including a list of gear which is for sale. I am planning to post it on the website and suggest if you have excess equipment that you would like to sell, forward me the items and the amount so I can add it to the list.

This Sunday, November 16th, Bob Terry and Bob Blanco are scheduled to serve as RC.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that the southern section of Shore Road will be closed; i.e. from Mill Hill to Cleft. So, if you are coming from points south of 25A, I would suggest coming in via Glen Cove. Just know that you will be diverted if you come through Oyster Bay.

Finally, SCYC is also hosting the Collegiate Match Racing Nationals on Saturday and Sunday. This event should not conflict with our racing but could provide a bit of a distraction for those of us who like to zone out going downwind!

Aloha and fair winds.
