As we do each year, Greg and I travelled to Saratoga New York for the annual Flying Scot Invitational hosted by Fleet 161 and chaired by Rob Hayes. We had a great time as usual with fun racing, good friends and plenty of good food and beverages. Friday was ouir usual visit to the horse races, where it rained all day, I lost $38 and Greg won $3, and we wondered if this was an indication of how the weekend would go. Friday night, there was a great meal back at the clubhouse with great friends and we met a few new friends as well.

We left this morning from Lake Carlyle where it was 92° at 8am and we knew we were extremely grateful that the RC got us off the water yesterday. We watched the temperature go up to 109° at one point and then we saw the weather coming. The temperature dropped 30°, the winds were reported as high as 80 knots and the camper was being blown around a bit along with the trailer. We took shelter at a comfort food stop where we gorged on shakes and cheese fries! Glad we were not anywhere near a lake at that time.
We started the day with a little wind and 90° and we went out at 9am and started the first race. Before the windward mark, the wind was gone and we waited a while, but no luck. So we retreated to shore for an early lunch. We were back out by 1pm with the temperature at 100° but with 10 knot winds we were able to start the race. We got in 2 great races (despite our own personal results). The PRO Ted Beier and his
