Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

These North/South bay races are frustrating. I'm routinely told by veterans that 95% of the time, there is no value in staying on the western shore, then after the race, I find out that these same veterans went there.

When I ask what their rationale was, they simply say that "this time", conditions warranted it.

Honestly though, there seems to be little value in following the Western shore most of the time, because it just has you driving extra miles to follow the curve.

The weather seems...different this year. Mild temps for much deeper into June, sustained Easterly breezes (which is very rare), and powerful Northerlies for the Miles River Race and DtB. It'll be interesting to see what conditions present themselves for Gov. Cup, Solomons Invitational, Oxford and Screwpile.
