On Sunday morning after Sailin’ Sisters recovered from the first round of pillagin’, we were ready for more! The piratin’ continued out on the wacky racecourse set in some pretty stiff winds. Timing didn’t matter as five boats took part in what we hope will become an annual event. Boats were to grab a pennant (pirate duct tape) off the windward mark then make a 360 degree turn on each leg of the course.
But the best part was that as they went past the committee boat, they were to toss a beverage to the race committee. Unfortunately for them, this also brought them within squirt gun range! Also unfortunately for the committee, we didn’t count on return fire in the form of water balloons from Captain Morgan’s crew!
Congratulations to Bret Overholtzer for following most of the rules (honestly, we didn’t watch the whole time but I’m guessing there might have been some pirate-line behavior going on), for single handing his boat through the entire race, and for winning the race by means of random drawing!
A big thank you to the race committee and to all the participants for taking part, demonstrating excellent boat handling skills (no boats were scraped in the execution of this event), and for being such good sports! Let’s do it again next year! Arrrrrr!
