December Perry Cup

15 Mercs competed in this month's racing in the Perry Cup Series. This brought the total of the competitors for all 8 races to 17. It was a sunny day and there was enough wind to get the Mercs to the starting area. It took a while for the race committee to set a course until a very weak breeze gave them decent direction. There was a swell running, but very little chop.

This ended up being a two lap race with a few chances downwind to pass but right side was pretty favored going up hill.
