C22 Whitby Single Handed

Now that regular Wednesday night racing is done, Whitby is having a single handed series.

We had six boats out:

  • Still Time
  • Cheeky Monkey
  • Mickey
  • Foxtrot
  • Firebird
  • Bananas
Before going out, I re-terminated the autohelm electrical connections that have been giving me trouble.  

Winds were forecasted for 6-8 from the south.  Out on the water, different story; only 2 knots max.

We tried to start at 18:00 as it is getting dark before 20:00.  We delayed until 18:45 bobbing around mark 9, and called the race.

Firebird near mark 9

Another incredible sunset!

Sometimes after 7pm, the winds did fill in to 5 or 6 knots, so I went out into the lake to try and catch up with the new 1D35 at the club:

Had to start the outboard to keep up with them!

Going so fast flames were coming from her!

The flames are an aberration of the sun with the cell phone camera.

I did not have my GPS, so no track data, however, I was able to download the track from the Velocitek Pro Start
