October 28 Centerboard Fleet results

Congratulations to John Kreidler (2) and Rick Fontenot on their bullets this past Saturday.

 

PRO Joe Martin and crew were on the water early for what was originally forecast as a spirited day of 15-25 from the West. However during the setup, we were seeing a very comfortable 6-10. That was about to change.

 

First race with 30 degree shifts being the norm, you had to get in the right place at the right time. John with Mitchell Brannon crewing did that and won the race, with Marvin Brinn and Bruce Elhert crewing captured silver (say whaaa?) and Rick Fontenot on his Weta Trimaran was third.

 

Second race was much of the same with the breeze building and moving left with Joe and team making a course change. John and Mitchell got the bullet, Rick was second and Marvin third.

 

Third race it was breeze on, especially for the last leg where puffs were in the upper teens/lower 20’s. Rick and his Weta were absolutely flying around the course and got the bullet, John second and Marvin third.

 

A big hand clap to three of the fleet members who raced this past Saturday. Marvin and Bruce did a great job Sunday and have come a long ways during the second half of the season and are becoming competitive. New fleet members Trent Gamble and friend Ross are really doing well and after just 9 races are starting to figure out this racing thing. I expect them to be a factor next year as I heard them say they are going to practice thru the winter. Look out CB fleet members! And lastly, Rick Fontenot is sailing really well, making great decisions on the water and has his Weta Trimaran smoking. Great to see Rick really improving his finishes over the past year. It’s been fun to witness.

 

One more race date this year remains, Saturday November 10th. See you there.
