It was a bit cool for a Tuesday Evening Series but all the other typical factors were there. Beautiful sailing, good racing, and good people. Winds went from moderate to light over the course of the evening and Les did a great job keeping the courses straight. Thanks Les!
Thom Lee won all the races (but that was just luck ;)). for complete results, visit monmouthboatclub.org/results.

Dale Barney and Bernard Friel come out on top in Opening Day racing.
Denis Farley led the Race Committee in running 2 races on a sunny opening day in winds that ranged from around 5 to 15 mph. Big shifts and pressure variations made for tricky sailing but Dale Barney and Bernard Friel figured things out a bit better than the rest of the competitors. Dale won both of the Lightning races while Bernard took a first and a second. For complete results, visit monmouthboatclub.org/results.
Thanks to John and Libby Vernazza for supplying pictures of the racing.
Floats In was a great success!
Thanks to all the members who came out to help get the club ready to start the season. The docks went in, two new ones were built, and tons of other things got done on a sunny but chilly and windy day.

Dan Vought continued his domination of the Winter Laser series by chalking up 4 wins in 6 races and Dave Watts jumped to the top of the N-10 leaderboard by winning 3 of the 4 races he sailed.
The big winners were everyone who came out on such a beautiful day. Along with the larger than usual number of competitors, there were plenty of people who stopped by the club to visit and spend time with friends and there was even a respectable crowd watching the racing from Marine and Riverside parks.
Long range forecast is calling for pretty nice weather next weekend as well. Hope to see you there. If you come to sail, remember, the water is still quite cold. Bring appropriate gear.
