Last race of the Kirkland Fall Series.
Forecast models conflicted on wind direction but agreed on light conditions and little chance of southerly. The parameters of this series include a start near Evergreen Point and a buoy close to the Kirkland shore, so the RC set a questionable starboard rounding triangle with an extra two legs for Div 1.
Fortunately, all boats understood the late course announcement and, unexpectedly, it was a remarkably close race in all 3 Divisions in warm temperatures, blue skies, and an impressive lenticular cloud over Mt Rainier.
Despite the light conditions, all boats finished within the 2-hour limit.
