For the second and third PHRF races on June 16, the competing sailors in the Southport Yacht Club could not have asked for better sailing conditions. Both races were on the Cape Fear River, the second of the two a makeup from earlier – a bad weather cancellation. They were each 7-8 mile races up the river, with winds starting at 10 knots, gusting to 17 knots later in each race.

Commodore Sam Johnston summed it up. “It was the best day yet for our race – a good clean day of sailing on the Cape Fear today – a beautiful day, beautiful winds.” Captain Bob Cowan on Nugget echoed his sentiment. “We really enjoyed it. It could not have been better sailing conditions.”
