Today's Distance Races

Today was JAPSDIP for sure!  Mostly sunny with a 10-11 knot SSW breeze, as measured by the NOAA instruments on the Venice pier.  There we only five boats out today, with several of the regulars out of town and Jim Liston illness.  The race course was an equilateral triangle, 3 nm on a side, once around (9 nm total) with marks to starboard.
