Another wonderful free party last night with a Mexican theme. The most plentiful buffet with music and games awaited the C fleet when they came in from an afternoon attempt. A's and I-20s were onshore after two races. Egg toss and a one-handed baseball game. What's that? Participants were required to hold a beverage (guess what that might be?) for pitching, running bases or at bat. A rousing game with loads of cheering.
There's an early start on Day 2 in an attempt to get three races in each fleet due to a forecasted 2-5 mph on Saturday.
