Spring Race Series
2022 Final Results

The Barefoot Spring Racing Series is over. We had 8 races scheduled with two(?) cancelled for no wind. As is typical on the lake for this time of year, the winds were generally light to non-existent or variable and difficult to gauge. The winds, or lack thereof, made for some challenging racing where patience and perseverance were often the keys to completing the course. In spite of the prevailing weather, we did have some exciting races where captains and crews fought hard to find the best winds possible and strategy prevailed over raw speed.
 

Unfortunately, the turnout for the races was about as light as the winds. When it comes to racing, the more the merrier, so we’re hoping to generate more participation for the Fall Series. With that in mind, the race captains are looking to initiate a dirt-up after each race where food and beverages will be available and awards given out. We want to encourage even the most race averse among you to come out and join the fun. The first priority of our races is to have fun. And while a part of that fun is competing to win, racing also affords a great opportunity to learn how to get the most out of your boat in all types of conditions and in all types of traffic. It’s a great way to learn the ropes (lines) so to speak. Win, lose or don’t finish - it’s all about having fun on the water.
 

As a final note, we welcome all suggestions for how to get you and your friends to participate in our fun races. Let us know your thoughts and ideas. Email us at fkempner@hotmail.com and  pwinham@gmail.com
