Slow going

The first night of the 75th running of the Vineyard Race was a slow one. All 76 boats DSC_3746in the race faced next to no wind and an adverse tide until around midnight. Some of the largest boats in the fleet in IRC 0 were heading back early this morning. According to the Flagship race tracker Rambler was the lead boat with a speed of 6.6 knots. All Vineyard boats this year are racing the shorter course implemented after the 2006 race. The shorter course is being used because of the light winds predicted all weekend.
