Results from Thompson, CT

The kids raced at COA's West Thompson Lake Regatta over the weekend:

Results for our kids (I didn't record all results for their classes):
Sat:  
AXH: Eli flipped before the white flag when he plowed into a big wake right in front of us.  3rd in the 2nd heat for a 6th place.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fd-VyE5STAo  Eli got a terrible start here, after just drying out from the flip (he went in head first)
JSR: 1st (this is on youtube)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NLMJVeakHQ
JSH:  Eli 2nd (disqualified for height, just like last year - forgot to change the tuck bracket when switching engines!)  (this is also on youtube)
       Quin:  Last (7th?)  still a little timid with his starts, but he's turning better now)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz2l4iMuaD8

Sun: (Eli's 13th birthday)
JSH: Eli 2nd on time by .01 seconds (3rd in 1st heat 2nd in 2nd heat, still can't catch Davey)
       Quin Last (6th)
JSR: 2nd
AXH: 3rd

We were very lucky with the weather.  
A little rain during the middle of the 3rd set, and then it cleared.  No stoppage of racing.
The skies opened up with serious rain, just as we were pulling out of the lot at 5:10 PM
