SYSCO Spring Series, Race 4, May 24, 2012

This was a race where we had a great start, but no finish. Above is a picture of us leading the pack at anchor. We had a good start on starboard close hauled by the mark side of the start. The course was "W", S - 1 - 4 - 1 - F. We were with the leaders at the start, but in order to go to the channel and gain the current advantage we tacked to port, but realized that we might be able to make the mark on starboard. We had passed the mark going to the RC earlier. It was up close to Goose Island in front of Tomahawk Bay Marina. When everyone arrived at the location of the mark, the mark was absent. Everyone agreed to go to 2 for the new 1 mark. So off everyone went to 2. The closer we got to 2, the lighter the wind. The wind lightened so much we dropped anchor. Thus the above picture. Eventually Poncho came by with the "N" flag signifying abandonment of the race. That was it.
