Mistakes were made, the winner got penalized { no fault of his own} and the Golden rule prevailed. Anything else is just an excuse.

I have learned over the years in racing to always factor in the "just in case" extra fuel ! It was rough the extra fuel will not hurt you if your boat is set up right, fuel tanks on the cg, etc!

I don't think anyone could have known for race one. there appeared to be some confusion with the pace boats for where the coarse was. when we came up the back leg the spectator boats were on our left.

I will give you that !

They must have for some reason thought it was the triangle course.

This was one of the few times I did not pay attention at the drivers meeting. I had too many other things going on.

I sure miss the days where no one left the dock unless they had course headings... So many people ignore that now because it is only suppose to be a run up the beach and back.

Regardless, when I navigated, I always used the landmarks for assistance. Bay Head's Water tower would have been the first sign that turn one would be coming up in about another 1/2 mile. Unfortunately is was much further south.
