Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA
West Dennis, MA — Day one of the King of the Cape had a promising start
in the early morning with winds blowing around 10-13kts, however with
cloud cover slowly approaching, any chance of strong thermal winds of
spring were squashed. With hopes held high following the Nevin Sayre
Kids Camp, the event began with running the Novice and Amateur heats.
When it came time to run the Pro Division, the first heat of round one
was started but had to be abandoned half way through when winds became
virtually non existent. After a break in the action the winds started
up again but not quite enough to make a go for the pro division so, the
Amateur and Novices rounds were continued. By the time round two was
completed, the winds again had died off. Not your normal June on the
usually sunny Cape Cod. To locals, citing an unusual spring, it seemed
par for the course the past month or so. The heats were abandoned
around 4pm, and sailors released for the day.
Nothing was going to stop the fun at the King of the Cape with a HUGE
BBQ sponsored by RED BULL at the Improper Bostonian with more ribs,
salads, burgers, and hotdogs than anyone could eat followed by the
rocking tunes of a local band that played out the night till the wee
hours. Everyone was partying hard and sprits were high, hopeful for
decent conditions tomorrow. Forecasts are calling for wind early in the
day again with the front passing over night tonight. Skippers meeting
will be started early and heats beginning the morning with hope of
getting as many pro rounds completed to insure a proper result.
