We had a bit of a sail just after lunch. It was beautiful with all these silly colorful little boats tacking around each other.
At 3:30 the official 2nd annual ice cream race happened. No cheating this year! John and Jackie were about to win in Cowboy Cookies, but John gracefully tacked out right at the very end. Sköl won the race.
Josh presented an award for the first place finisher, an award for the longest distance (Jackie from Oklahoma) and a special award to Dan for #70, who launched for the first time on the day of the rally. Dan's boat turned out just beautiful, he should be proud.

In the above shot, you can see how Dan raised his cabin a few inches.
Mike even briefly sailed Tor with his own homemade spinnaker. Very nice. Wish I would have gotten a picture.
I was looking forward to this all week. I was hoping to top last year's 11 boats, but alas that didn't happen. We just matched it. There is always next year.
I did miss my new friends Brent and Shackleton.
A good time was had by all.
