236--California: ALYC Sundowner Sailing
@ CherieSpotting     Sep 15 2004 - 04:02 PST
cherie writes: This summer 31 PHRF-rated yachts competed in ALYC’s “Sundowner Series.” After 20 weeks of sailing, 1st place went to “Violetta De La Mare” in PHRF Division A. Bob Dodds took 2nd on “Whisper,” “Engage” took 3rd, “Hobo Flats” took 4th and our crew on “Electre” took 5th.

“Electre” skipper Mark Duranty was satisfied with the crew’s 5th place finish (after a few Whiskeys.)

“With a light crew of 19, we ended the season just like we started—with a whole lot of fun,” said Mark.

When the horn sounded for the last boat finishing the race most sailors were cheerful. But for some, there was a tinge of sadness in the air—the same sadness one feels when anything meaningful comes to an end. September 13th may have been the last Monday night race this year—but the 2004 sailing season is far from over.
