Gords hauling ass(as usual)....Whitey has fuel issues and ran out 10 miles from the finish of the first leg......not too sure on the CXs, but Rick is hauling in FX. I smacked a couple big rollers, dove the nose in and ripped both wings from the hull. Rode the last half wingless and the also the leg down(sucked) we all had a pretty good battle in FX near the end and the Vs were also going hard. Great day of racing for this green horn....ears are ringing and my cheeks are sore from smiling! I will post a pic of the board tomorrow morning if I remember my phone!

I will add a few things.
Dale had fuel issues on the first leg and was not able to contiue. Ryan rogers ran a flawless race and was very fast. The times don't show it but the top 4 cx boats were actually very close in speed. Tim greber picked up an intermitent short in his alternator and gave him a dnf on the second leg but was good to go on Sunday. Jay Grahn picked up a rock at the first leg start then got spun out at the mouth of the Smokey by a wake from the boat he was passing he was up and runiing again in a couple of minutes.

The last circuit race in CX was awesome...Weavers tried everything they could to pass RRogers but couldn't make it stick....the first FX heat I was in was a bit of a shit show, but I learned lots. Met alot of great people and definitely see myself being a long time racer...what a blast!

I have heard by a few people now that Jay was cut off at the mouth ,
who was in front of him ??
i thought that all the racers have mirrors and are not supposed to cut off other boats when they have the line ,
i also know that he got cut off bad in the circuits also ,
u would think if u are slower u would man up and let him go

just my two cents worth

There was a big poplar stuck at the mouth of the Smoky(Wapiti). Some boats decided to go around and some cut the corner, last minute decision. Thats what we saw from shore : a late decision caused it.

It is to bad that 2 boats circled the wrong island in the circuits : looked to be of of the closest race.

I know if I hadn't of screwed up my start it could have been a great three way race, it was just to dam confusing when we would see them in totally different spots every lap and couldn't figure out why. On our third lap they were heading to Magoos so I assumed I had one more then we were done(wanted to finish every leg) Nav had one piece of tape left to pull off, but I assumed he just missed one(they finished to early and I felt there was no way they worked us that bad) but now know why. Turns out I did 4 complete laps and they run 5 part laps....I was driving like I wanted to chase them down but every lap got more confusing. After I saw them leaving I thought i would do one more, so I hugged the shore to get the checkers, but saw nothing. I think a white flag for last lap should be the norm at all Circuts to avoid some confusion....I would have loved to do all five. I would have also liked to try and run them down to make up for my error. Lesson learned...RUN YOUR OWN RACE, ALWAYS TRUST YOUR NAV, and don't shut the motor off when the white start flag is up(I was creeping up go the start line in some pretty still water by the starting booth) still loved every minute of it!

There were boats praticing the circuit the night before and some were turning at that island and some were going further. I figured there was going to be some confusion.

I stood on that log jam, watched the race unfold ...You must have been the boat I gave the confusion/ touchdown signal to.. but I thought you had done the five laps and it was over...

Jay caught the wake from the boat that swirved at the last second to go around the log instead of the inside of it and thats what spun him out. He spun so hard that it ripped the air cleaner off breaking the carb stud in then process. Thats racing!!
