Pine Point Regatta



Here's a cool photo from a local flyer present the day of the CRANNE distance Race at Pine Point Beach. There were two races that day and this pic is after the second race around an offshore Island. The Nacras were flying spinakers and went a further distance...a few Hobies packed up after the first race which was 2-3 hours of sailing. What a great day...I learned that cutting it close around the islands had the consequence of navigating lobster trap fields...with the current running fast by the shore the ropes were at an angle so you couldn't just avoid the buoy, you had to avoid the rope too! Twice I had to come off the wire to pop my one of my rudders back down!
