The Dataw Island Yacht Club (DIYC) Sailing Fleet held a race yesterday in excellent sailing conditions. The race started at the Dataw Island Marina, sailed down the Morgan River to the entrance of Village Creek then returned to the marina for the finish. Six boats raced in 15 knot winds with gusts up 20 knots, and waves that approached 4 feet.
All boats sailed very well. These pictures show the Race Committee, Jerry Hubbard, David Hubbard, and Skip Hoyt, as they are going through the starting sequence; and the boats tightly bunched at the start.
In a closely contested race the order of finish was:
1st – Scott Johnson 107.01 min
2nd – Jack Shaughnessy 107.84 min
3rd – Greg Shymske & John McShane 110.88 min
4th Rick Brown 113.70 min
5th Russ Gore 122.38 min
6th Kelly Duncan 122.63 minutes.
It’s great to be having our sailing races at the marina again!
