Could not get crew, so at the skipper's meeting I recruited Steve Moffat from the club. Steve has been crewing for years on a C&C 38 called Frenzy. He also has crewed for Dave Sandford on Skana.
Steve and I went out to the race course on big Still Time (CS34). The first thing we did was drop the dodger forward to get it out of the way. The second thing we did was take the bimini canvas and frame off. Completely different boat.
Winds were as high as 20 knots, and as low as 8 knots from the south. Lumpy out there, so you needed to crack the sheets off for close reach power to get through the waves.
|Race 1: 5 Short|
The 135% genoa is in decent shape, but the UV cover has shrunk causing a big hook on the leech of the sail: SLOW.
|Race 2: 5 short|
|Race 3: 6 shortened short|
|Race 4: 6 shortened short|
We came near to last in all races, but had fun.
- That when you type "miles" with your right hand over one position, you get "nukes"
- Still Time is NOT a racer
- Steve Moffat is good crew
Thanks for coming out with me Steve.
