Point Series - Cedar Key 2006

The wind was blowing hard from the north at 05:30 as three boats got ready for launching on the 35-mile course.  SaltyFrog and SoreShoulders left together in their own boats.  A few minutes later Frogy130 and CatLady launched in a double surf ski. 

At 08:00 Lugnut and Tomahawk were getting ready to launch.  The wind was still blowing hard but the day was clear and promised to continue that way for several hours. 

As usual, SaltyFrog and SoreShoulders were the first to arrive at the finish.  They got first and second bonus points divided equally because they tied.  They were followed about an hour later by Frogy130 and CatLady who split third place bonus point.

Tomahawk had to abort the mission due to rudder problems.  Since this was the first time he had sailed his boat, there was much to learn.  He got good experience that will help him prepare for his first challenge, the EC2007 in March.
