Rum Runner 2010
The Rum Runner 2020 may go down as one of the wettest races we have held recently. With most of the participants braving at least one torrential squall (complete with hail) we decided to score the race at both the halfway point (the time you crossed the SL/FL heading towards the dam at the halfway point) and the planned finish. As we were unable to "Call" the race and get the information out to everyone (anyone!) and a few stalwarts actually braved the second storm (serious hail), we have listed the times and winners for the "Split" race and the full race. Thanks go to Blair for winning both the half and the full race and making the political decision to call him the overall race winner much easier. Lesson learned? In future we will have a clear plan for a short course if the weather dictates and communications to get the word out.
Also a round of applause and kudos to Steve and Anita who, doing quite well in the race, took down their sails during the first squall (dropping out of the race) and went back to check on others' safety. They definitely win the Sportsmanship Award this year!
Not too many photos were taken. Thanks Lorne and Steve for these.
