PONY EXPRESS REGATTA DES FEMMES Abandoned

Posted by AJ Miceli on June 23, 2014

The forecast said all along that we should expect storms about race time last Wednesday (June 18th).  About 6PM it was still clear, so we went out with our light air all-woman crew (Kim, Rosemary, Judy).

About 25 mins. into the race the skies darkened to the west and then the lightning came — and the end of the race.  We hurried back to the dock and got back before the squall hit.  The yacht club instruments said the winds topped out at 57 knots — then the electricity went out at the club!
