Challenge Cup 2011

Challenge Cup 2011
12 boats total
6 from Tall Oaks Yacht Club
6 from Cedar Creek Marina

The course was set, as shown on the
back of Antny's shirt.

As we left the slip, our
captain had a few stories to tell.

Objects in mirror are NOT
as close as they appear!

Just behind us was Escapade
swapping places with us a few times.


And Fifty-Fifty who passed us on the next-to-last leg.

Off our bow, to port, is Mr. Mylar (lead boat).

What they do on the other boats during a race,
does not STAY on the other boats.

Not in the race, but still a nice view.

Bob breaks out a couple of PBR's for
himself to celebrate our 4th place finish.

The captain and his lovely wife, our hosts.
Thanks for "how goddamn good it felt to sail well".

Tall Oaks Yacht Club captured the Challenge Cup again!
Fifty-Fifty with a corrected time took the cup (from Mr. Mylar),
with Escapade in 3rd and Bay Rhumb bringing in
a very respectable 4th place finish.
