So..yesterdays race

Humm….well it started in 4 to 5 knots of wind and we had an awful start. Stalled the boat to hold a lane to weather then changed our mind and tried to drive thru to leeward of two boats and were left sitting under two boats with no speed at the gun.

No surprise we rounded the top mark last and enjoyed plenty of clear air on the next leg. We gained plenty, rounded ahead of one boat and then went back upwind. Played the left (towards the island) for pressure and better current and passed two or three more.

On the final leg we played the right downwind (towards the island) and perhaps we did not have as much current but as we came into the line we enjoyed a ten degree shift in our direction and some good pressure. Passed another group and celebrated our seventh!!!

Some better wind forecast for today, let's hope for two good races and a jump up the standings….
