Thanks to members of the J24 fleet for your
terrific support of collegiate sailing! Forty actual or aspiring
Gamecock Sailors showed up for J24 Fleet Day. Everyone had a great time,
despite the passing deluge. Thanks to those of you who let us use your
boats when you couldn’t be there. Jim and Wayne – well, we did get
soaked near the end of the day so we’ll need to dry out the boats as
soon as the rain quits – maybe tomorrow. Sails and lines were left wet.
Thanks to Crawford and Matt for taking charge of those two boats so that
more folks could get on the water. Alex (with Charles’ boat), Mays, and
Hootie thanks for being there in person to help make this happen.
Thanks to John
Dotterer and Bill Freeman for setting out some marks for us. We had a
larger-than-expected number of new sailors turn up, so we weren’t quite
as ready to race as we had hoped. But having marks to sail around made
the day better and I think everyone had a great time, even the
first-timers. Thanks Amber for providing enough ice cream so that the
GSC folks could have some when we got ashore. Thanks to Michial and
Steve for bringing out the U20 reinforcements when we didn’t have enough
J24s to carry everyone.
Joe Reyes – great
pics, both asea and ashore!
