Come early at 3 PM and watch the Chris Henkel Mad Scramble sailboat race. This is an unusual race with peculiar rules and is a lot of fun. N10’s and Lasers will be sailing.
Can’t believe this tiller extension joint lasted through the entire first race.
7 Lightnings and 6 Flying Scots went out in trying conditions today. Winds were roughly 15-25 mph and shifty. Many came close but no one went over and the racing was great as always.
Congratulations to Dave Watts and Bernard Friel for winning the day in the Lightning and Flying Scot fleets respectively. For complete results, visit monmouthboatclub.org/results.
Opening day 2015 had cloudless skies and moderate breezes to help us kick off racing and provide a great environment for the cocktail party.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with floats in. As you can see if you watch the video, it’s truly an all hands event.

The ice is gone, the sun was out, and there was enough wind to get 6 races in for both fleets.

There’s Frostbite racing on the club’s calendar for Easter Sunday and then it’s floats in and the start of the spring series on the following weekend. So long winter. Can’t say we’ll miss you.
Time for soft water sailors to make room for ice boaters.
Be sure to have your boats appropriately out of the way and we’ll see you when the river thaws.
Too much ice for Lasers and N-10s. Not enough ice for ice boating.
Try to enjoy the weekend anyway.
Thanks to Art Petrosemolo for the pic!
Winds gusting to around 30 mph kept most, but not all the sailors off the river today. Some of the gusts were strong enough to lift the lasers off their dollies during rigging. That was enough to discourage all but 3 sailors from going out.
Congratulations to Chris Henkel on winning all 6 races today in a great start to the winter Laser series.
