Tall Oaks Yacht Club Summer Race Series....Racing Cacique, a 1970 Morgan 30. With race #1 canceled because of weather we jump to race #2. Bob could not join us so Dennis invited Lori to fill his spot. We didn't have a very good start but kept close for a bit before falling back and finishing fifth. (There were only five boats.) Had a great day and learned a few more things about sailboat racing. Now it's all about practice.....and some luck. ;)
137: Beneteau 36CC Racing - TOYC Race #1 2017
First race of the Tall Oaks Yacht Club 2017 season. Not quite ready to try and race Dorothea so I had planned to sit this one out. Then Terry asked me if I wanted to help crew his Beneteau 36CC in the race, of course I couldn't say no. We had a crew of five; Terry, Kevin_1, Kevin_2(that's me) Vicky & Rick. Had a blast finishing the course in third place, still waiting for the official scoring after handicap adjustments are made. Little sore the day after but would do it again! -------------------------------------------------------- Video is set to Mr. Blue Sky by ELO. SUMMER IS HERE...ENJOY!

Once again I join Terry to help crew his Beneteau 36C along with his friend John. The last race of the season is the Challenge Cup Race between Tall Oaks Yacht Club and Windjammers Sailing Club. It was a superb day out on Barnegat Bay for sailing....had a blast thanks Terry. This years race saw TOYC retaking the cup from Windjammers. -------------------------------- Music: 'Good To Be Alive' By Meghan Trainer
