SCORCH to Boston Spring 2010: Sunday May 16
« on: May 06, 2010, 10:14:28 AM »
The Viper Scorch takes place twice each year and bookends the Marblehead sailing season. The Spring edition is a race from Marblehead to Boston, and the fall edition from Marblehead to Gloucester.

Grab your Viper or get yourself on one for May 16. Meet at the Marblehead Channel Marker at 11am. Potluck lunch on Lovell Island after the race.

Details TBA
Viper #?!?! SCORCHED

Elapsed time for first boat to finish: 1hr 25min 53sec

elapsed time for first tallboys to be finished on Lowell island >33sec (estimated - no one was able to focus long enough on the official stopwatch)

very fun race - incredible day of sun, breeze, great scenery, delicious food - the whole 9 yards

next year I'll bring the tablecloth for the picturesque dining venue at the end of the boardwalk

first boat I ever owned was viper #28; it was a gateway drug.
my current viper is #98; I can't sail it enough.
the resulting sailing addiction's ok up to that point, but come Winter whydahell do I also have to frostbite a Laser?!
