Another record year for the Last Race Race! This year we had 18 boats participate in our last port-to-port race, a new record! The weather was great with the wind coming out of the south at 10-15 knots. Although it was cloudy the rain held off all day until after 10pm.
Racers gathered early in the morning at the dock wall outside of the club. We never know exactly how many will race until Saturday morning. Weather is a big factor in the numbers, but some racers come no matter what.

Although the weather looked threatening, there was no rain during the race and it held off until after 10pm. With the wind from the south, many boats launched spinnakers as soon as they left the harbor making it a fast race. Many boats finished in just little more than 2 hours.

Traditionally, racers dock at Kenosha Yacht Club for a late lunch. The service, food and drinks were all wonderful. A great ending to another great race.
