This is not the one boat race, but a great gal sailing a 4.7 rig at the Lake Eustis Sailing Club in Florida.
The local MC scow group tried to have a Wednesday evening race here at LESC, but only two boats came and they had no race.  If they only had one boat come they should have had a race and then passed the word. 
The folks that didn't come would then know they should have made it.  With no race, those folks would say "I did the right thing.  Stayed home."  
They had two boats.  Wow, a match race that they missed.
I have done the one boat race a number of times, but not recently.   Our Laser fleet at LESC is in its sixth year and the past winter season (September to May) we had 29 sailors and the year before we had 21 sailors.   This past year we had 163 races.  Fewest boats was four and most 14.  Of the 29 sailors this past year 16 were adults, 13 youth, and 6 women. We are still stuggling to get more out.  We haven't had a one boat race yet, but we will if we have to.

    That is an old picture of a great little sailor that sails with us. We keep trying to more gals to sail. They are more numerous in the younger youth group and then tend to drop out as they get older.
