Early leader was Tim on Rosebud and Dave and crew on Seahawk flying his spinnaker with the rest of the boats in pursuit. Wind conditions were very light and variable. After rounding the first mark H, Tim began to stretch his lead which he would never relinquish. Following in second was Dave and crew on Seahawk. A good race between Brenda Gail and Honeycraft followed for third with MM, Deadstick and Family Fued drifting in the after guard in the very light air. The race conditions continued to be very light to non existent throughout the afternoon with boats being becalmed or speeding along at 1to 2 knots. Due to the conditions the race was called to end at 4:00 pm with boat finishes based on position down the course. No boat actually was able to finish due to the lack of wind. First 3 positions were:
Tim on Rosebud in first place
Dave and Crew Barbara, Kyle and Eddie on Seahawk in second place
Ron and Crew Duane on Honeycraft in third place
After the race we had a gathering of 20 or so folks for a good ole hot dog cooking and fixins with presentation of Hot Dog Burgee and trophies by Ron and last years winner Eddie. Food and socializing was great. Special thank you goes to Jeff for race committee, Doug for help with setting marks, food cooking set up, Kyle Wilcox and Dave Rock for cooking, Helen for bringing hot dog fixins and everyone who brought food and came by to enjoy the Hot Dog Race.
