DNF = Did Not Finish

Lady in Red wasn't able to race on Tuesday night but from what I heard, it started out to be a beautiful evening of racing. Unfortunately the wind didn't hold. Fortunately there was just enough wind for the six lucky boats (skillful skippers) that finished the race. Congratulations for finding it.

Not much to report on the racing but I'd like to share an e-mail that I received from John Mendolia after the race. 

"Good morning
Had a very nice but slow sail last night. It was our wedding anniversary - couldn't think of a better place to spend it. Wish there was a little more wind as we decided a little after 9 to call it quits but it was still fun.
As my wife said in her Facebook post-
"Happy Anniversary - may we always have a motor for when we have no wind"

Happy belated anniversary to the Mendolia's. Great Facebook post! Glad to hear that you enjoyed the somewhat windless evening. 

We set another "First" this week with the most (11) DNF's in a race but don't want to break that record ever again. See you all next week.
