It was a topsy-turvy day on the water for the FSC Inshore fleet competing in the Ron Warren Trophy last Saturday. Before the start of the race the wind was gusting up to thirty knots (apparent) and some boats struggled to make the start at Y mark under reefed and double reefed mainsails.

Calms, shifting and changeable winds under stormy skies greeted the FSC inshore fleet as they set out for the feeder race to TCYC last Saturday morning. All but one of the fleet made it down the sound within the time limit to enjoy the hospitality of TCYC.
The first race for the Gordon Craig took place in 1949 and the Dolphin Race in 1953. Over the last 60 years these races have been made up of a number of different course formats from windward-leeward racing to short passage races.
Nineteen boats took to the water in perfect sailing conditions for the FSC Inshore Summer Series Race 6. A 10 knot SSWly breeze built to 15 knots during the afternoon. Many sailors had come down early to see the Clipper Round the World fleet depart the club and the Clipper restart was visible to the north throughout the race providing inspiration to the fleet.
