Another beautifull day, a stiff breeze would make for a good days racing,
Aileen decided to remain ashore for the day and go for a trip in the Delaney Jeep while
Skipper took Clayton Love and son Clayton out 3 miles north of the bridge to watch the racing which sterted promptly
at 11.00hrs
Its a pleasure to observe efficient race officers that had everything ready to go at the designated time ,
There were 3 races held in 18 to 21 knots of steady southerly wind which made for real close and exciting racing,
By 4pm, the racing was finished with a total of 6 races for yesterday and today with six different winners
who each get to carry the yellow spinniker for the following race,
At the end of six races, Canada is leading with the New York Y.C. in second place and the RCYC in sixth place,
We returned to the mooring , The lads went ashore and Aileen returned with some provisions,
Later at 19.oohrs, the Argentinian club gave a free party and dinner at the Yacht Club and was open to everyone,
A good night was had by all,
Thats it for now,
Signed ;-  Stepehn Hyde   ( Skipper )
