We had six boats out:
- Still Time
- Cheeky Monkey
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.

|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
