Whidbey Island Race Week 2010 was a hard start to the week with a light easterly filling in after a southwesterly started the day.  The race committee got off all the starts but as the evening neared the wind started shutting down allowing only one finisher and the time limit expiring on the rest of the fleet.  The one finishers were Tiger Lily and Mai Tai both Flying Tigers leaving Prowler just short of making the time limit.   The sailing was tight up to the second weather mark and then the wind started shutting down as the temperature started rising.

Tomorrows weather is predicted to have a little better winds out of the predominate Westerly direction.

Pictures from the first day are here. http://picasaweb.google.com/Ullmansailssd/WIRWDay1#
