Another great 'Round Whidbey in the books!
Boats finished Round Whidbey in the dark, and the sound of a sailboat crossing the finish on a beam reach in 20 knot winds is more dramatic than the sight. The wind through the sails, the hull through the water, then gone!
Congrats to Sofa King Slow (Gary Stuntz) for the win. Pearl Jem (Larry Munns) took second, and Family Affair (Tom Busse) grabbed third place.
Thanks to Byron Skubi for taking on Race Committee duties and to those who participated.
Jan's Marine Photography stopped by and grabbed some shots of us making the turn on the south end. Thanks Jan! https://janpix.smugmug.com/Events/Round-Whidbey-Island-Race-2017/
Another great Round Whidbey in the books. Join us next year for a fun overnight sailboat race!
