PHRF Series kicks off on a gusty day

Under clear skies and light winds, the Southport Yacht Club kicked off their PHRF sailing race series on Saturday. Nine boats participated in the race, sailing 5.7 nautical miles up the river and back. Challenged with an incoming current and gusts on the returning portion of the race, some boats had a tough time rounding the final mark. Fleet captain Scott Kaseman described the race. “It was a great day on the water,” he said. “Winds started light but got up to as much as 18 knots at the end.. Still it was an awesome race.”
