Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!
Well The first race went off yesterday 4/20/2013 at Cave Run Lake. Today the temp is
36*- F I am not sure what it was yesterday but it was very cool. The sunshine was nice. Everyone was happy to be back on the lake The wind was good.
Sails everyplace the fleet was out. We did not have a lot of motor boats on the lake. One soul on a jet ski, bless his heart. He never slowed down. Pounding over the chop in a shower of spray. He never came near enough to see if he had a wet suit. A few hard core bass boats looking for the right fish.
The wind was strong at 20-25 mph and gust to 30 at times. The lake has hills and trees around it that can make some interesting wind shifts. It is a very pretty lake. The Catalina-22 was the most popular craft on the lake. Other sailboats from 21 to 26 foot were rounding the marks.
We had a nice social after the four races. We have some new club members ! That was the best part of the day meeting them ! It was so much fun to get out and say good by to the cool weather. Soon we will see green trees. The grass has started to grow. It is time to sail ! Who wants to mow grass anyway ? Kind Regards, Lou
