Report Grosse Pointe 2016

IMG_1715This one day June 25th, 2016 event seen great summer weather with a light breeze, a sunny sky and temps in the 80s.    I counted 21 sails on the water for the first race.   A good sign was there were 5 new racers in the beginner fleet!    Hopefully they will all return next year.   As usual everyone got at least one raffle prize and many got two.        Three races were ran before pizza lunch and two after lunch.   The wind was slowly building and a few people even got up on a plane on the way in for lunch.  Unfortunately after lunch the winds started to diminish again.    The lovely award medallions were hand made with care(picture below).  The award presentation and raffle were completed about 5:30 and then many of the group headed to a local establishment for drinks and food.
