Early morning was sunny, kind of chilly and 2 – 4 knots of wind. We sailed at Tualatin Commons. We tried to catch the wind and avoid the “bombs” dropped by the flying geese. We had a casualty, our fearless IOM captain did not take cover soon enough when the sirens went off warning about the incoming geese attack… It was very sad!!! His new beaver’s hut got hit, his chair got hit and his Picanto (IOM) got hit. Almost in tears, our fearless IOM captain, in broken voice said “go on without me, save yourselves”. What a sacrifice! Ron took one for the club!!
At the beginning of the day, Morgan felt lonely. He called Chris and got voice mail. He called Dave, got an answer and a rejection. “I am in Bend” Dave said. Heart broken, shaking, Morgan said “Let’s score 53 points for the duck boat”. “Yeahhh” went the known beaver fun. That’s why you see 53 points for Dave sailing in Tualatin while he was in Bend.
Eric is getting in tune with the RC part of the sailing. He is not new to sailing, just to the RC part. Maybe next season, we reverse the radios and put the sail control on the right and rudder control on the left. I have a feeling that will confuse the issue and keep Eric’s learning curve longer.
Talking about learning curve , Kurt, our commodore of vice, got a bullet today. Also, Kurt announce an addition to his fleet, a competitive IOM. Rumor has it, that Kurt signed up Brad Gibson for private lessons during winter in his private lake, the blue one. Ron went to the corner and cried…
Here are the results:
