**** Commodore's Cup Round 1 ****

Round 1 of the Commodore's Cup on December 9th was a bit disappointing due to the low turnout and the weather. Five competitor's lined up for the start in a 10-15 knot breeze which rapidly change to 30+ knots just as the gun went as a front came through. Everything on the water and land got blown away with all but one competitor capsizing. The skippers of the two cats (who shall remain nameless) both left the beach without trapeze harnesses, which only added to the problems. The wind moderated somewhat but remained gusty. New member Jim Tulip managed to complete the course with Rohan and Niamh in the Hobie 16 also completing the course after an extended break on the beach after wearing themselves out trying to right a capsized boat without the benefit of a trapeze harness (oh well, now you know who one of the cat skippers was).

We will need to hear from the race committee to see if the results from this chaotic race will stand as round 1 of the Commodore's Cup or whether we will sail two rounds on the weekend of February 2/3.
